Who Are The Unvaccinated?

With vaccine mandates sweeping through the nation, a large percentage of Americans will be barred from society. Who will be affected?

They're not just Republicans.

Young people: Only a little over 50% of those aged 18-24 have been vaccinated, compared to about 90% of Americans aged 65 and older. The percentage is even less for those under 18.

  • According to the Economist and CDC data, the case fatality rate of COVID-19 for men and women aged between 0-35 is < 0.1 percent.

Black and Hispanic communities: 41% of Hispanics and 38% of black Americans are vaccinated, compared to 48% of white Americans.

Despite these groups overwhelmingly voting for Joe Biden, they are still hesitant about getting the vaccine.

The economically disadvantaged: The number of people who have not received the vaccine by household income.

People with lower incomes make up a larger share of the unvaccinated.

Republicans: A majority of both Republicans and Democrats have been vaccinated, despite a sizable gap between the rates.
