Crown Heights Vaccine Rates Among NYC’s Lowest
Crown Heights’s vaccine rates are among the city’s lowest, and it’s getting attention in the media.
A Patch article on the lower vaccination rates of some areas of New York City singled out Crown Heights over its 53% partially vaccinated, and 46% fully vaccinated rates, a marked low over the city’s 71% partial vaccination rate.
The number itself in context has less of a gap when looking at Brooklyn’s 63% partial vaccination rate, a solid 8% lower than the city in general.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Crown Heights does not have the lowest rate in the city, with the 11233 ZIP code, which covers Brownsville, Bed-Stuy and part of Crown Heights beating out even Crown Heights with a 52% rate.
Here’s where the rates stood for each ZIP code as of Monday:
11233 Bedford-Stuyvesant (East)/Ocean Hill-Brownsville: 52% partially vaccinated, 45% fully vaccinated
11213 Crown Heights (East): 53% partially vaccinated, 46% fully vaccinated
11225 Crown Heights (West)/Prospect Lefferts Gardens: 63% partially vaccinated, 57% fully vaccinated
1216 Bedford-Stuyvesant (West)/Crown Heights (West): 67% partially vaccinated, 61% fully vaccinated
These numbers are following the nearly 10% boost given by the vaccine mandates, which also entrenched many in opposition to the vaccines.
