Correction: The original version of this story cited Georgia, Fletcher and Monkton as having low vaccination rates. The Vermont Health Department warns in notes below the map, however, that some town rates may be inaccurate because some towns do not have their own zip code, and some residents of one town may have their mail delivered to another. These three towns fall under that warning and should not have been cited in the original story.
The Vermont Department of Health has created an interactive map showing vaccination rates by town for percentage of residents aged 12 and older who have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
The map will be updated weekly on Thursdays, according to the Health Department. The state is pushing toward a goal of 80% of eligible Vermonters vaccinated. Currently, 78.4% of eligible Vermonters aged 12 and older have been vaccinated. To reach 80%, 8,708 more Vermonters will need to get their first jab.
Clicking on the interactive map shows that Burlington — with 61-70% of eligible residents vaccinated — is not among the cities in Vermont with the highest vaccination rates.
Stowe and Greensboro, for example, have vaccination rates higher than 90%, and there are other towns that have achieved the same level. In southern Vermont, more than 90% of Arlington residents have been vaccinated.
In an effort to continue to push toward that 80% vaccination rate goal, the Health Department offers an online vaccine clinic request form for businesses, community groups and others who want to host a vaccine clinic.
Vermonters can find a convenient place here to get their shots.
