COVID-19 vaccinations among Chicago residents

Initial vaccine rollout focused on those aged 65 and older and essential workers. These groups are considered to be the most at-risk of COVID-19 infection and/or severe outcomes. Over time those eligible has expanded, and all Chicagoans 12+ are now eligible for vaccination. 

Vaccination coverage percentages are not calculated for race-ethnicity groups with small populations in Chicago. Differences in how race-ethnicity data are collected on vaccination forms and the U.S. Census may result in over or under estimates of coverage in these groups. All data are provisional and subject to change.‚Äč

Doses given to Chicago residents

There are currently three vaccines that are available to Chicago residents-Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson (also called Janssen). Pfizer and Moderna require two doses, while Johnson & Johnson requires one dose. This graph shows the 7-day rolling average number of Chicago residents who have received at least one dose of vaccine or have completed a vaccine series. A rolling average smooths out day-to-day jumps, but still provides current information about vaccine administration.

Under Protect Chicago, vaccination reports will reflect Chicago demographics/look like Chicago.

  • 59% of Chicagoans are Black or Latinx*.
  • Yet in the first week of COVID vaccination in Chicago, when vaccine was only available to health care workers and all vaccine eligibility was linked to employment status, only 18% of COVID vaccines went to Black or Latinx Chicagoans.
  • In more recent weeks of COVID vaccination in Chicago, with vaccine available to people 65+ and front-line essential workers, community partners building vaccine confidence and access, and our Protect Chicago equity-driven distribution strategy in place, the make-up of those who have received a first dose is more reflective of the demographic make-up of Chicago*.  
  • We still have a long way to go to achieve equity, but our city’s Protect Chicago initiatives are yielding real improvements. Track our progress in the chart below.

*Chicago demographics: 32.9% White, non-Latinx; 29.8% Black, non-Latinx; 29.0% Latinx; 6.7% Asian, non-Latinx

Line chart showing Percent of first doses administered by race/ethnicity over time in Chicago. Latinx = 42.6; Black, non-Latinx = 31.6%; White, non-Latinx = 18.6%; Asian, non-Latinx = 6.4%; AI/AN, non-Latinx = 0.5%; PI/NH, non-Latinx - 0.2%

AI/AN = American Indian/Alaska Native, PI/NH = Pacific Islander/Native Hawaiian

Data reported through 6/30/21. Percentage calculated among those with known race ethnicity. Due to a change in how ‘Other race’ is being captured in I-CARE, ‘Other, non-Latinx’ is no longer being displayed on this graphic; instead, AI/AN and PI/NH are shown.
