COVID-19 Vaccinations by Race/Ethnicity and Age

data.ct.gov | Last Updated 20 Oct 2022

Important change as of June 1, 2022 As of June 1, 2022, we will be using 2020 DPH provisional census estimates* to calculate vaccine coverage percentages by age at the state level. 2020 estimates will replace the 2019 estimates that have been used. Caution should be taken when making comparisons of percentages calculated using the 2019 and 2020 census estimates since observed difference may result from the shift in the denominator. The age groups in the state-level data tables will also be changing as a result of the switch to the new denominator. * DPH Provisional State and County Characteristics Estimates April 1, 2020. Hayes L, Abdellatif E, Jiang Y, Backus K (2022) Connecticut DPH Provisional April 1, 2020 State Population Estimates by 18 age groups, sex, and 6 combined race and ethnicity groups. Connecticut Department of Public Health, Health Statistics & Surveillance, SAR, Hartford, CT. _________________________________________________________________________________________ This table shows the number and percent of people that have initiated COVID-19 vaccination, are fully vaccinated and had additional dose 1 by race / ethnicity and age group. All data in this report are preliminary; data for previous dates will be updated as new reports are received and data errors are corrected. The age groups in the state-level data tables will also be changing as a result of the switch to the new denominator. Population size estimates are based on 2019 DPH census estimates until 5/26/2022. From 6/1/2022, 2020 DPH provisional census estimates are used. In the data shown here, a person who has received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine is considered to have initiated vaccination. A person is considered fully vaccinated if he/she has completed a primary vaccination series by receiving 2 doses of the Pfizer, Novavax or Moderna vaccines or 1 dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The fully vaccinated are a subset of the people who have received at least one dose. A person who completed a Pfizer, Moderna, Novavax or Johnson & Johnson primary series (as defined above) and then had an additional monovalent dose of COVID-19 vaccine is considered to have had additional dose 1. The additional dose may be Pfizer, Moderna, Novavax or Johnson & Johnson and may be a different type from the primary series. For people who had a primary Pfizer or Moderna series, additional dose 1 was counted starting August 18th, 2021. For people with a Johnson & Johnson primary series additional dose 1 was counted starting October 22nd, 2021. For most people, additional dose 1 is a booster. However, additional dose 1 may represent a supplement to the primary series for a people who is moderately or severely immunosuppressed. Bivalent booster administrations are not included in the additional dose 1 calculations. The percent with at least one dose many be over-estimated, and the percent fully vaccinated and with additional dose 1 may be under-estimated because of vaccine administration records for individuals that cannot be linked because of differences in how names or date of birth are reported. Race and ethnicity data may be self-reported or taken from an existing electronic health care record. Reported race and ethnicity information is used to create a single race/ethnicity variable. People with Hispanic ethnicity are classified as Hispanic regardless of reported race. People with a missing ethnicity are classified as non-Hispanic. People with more than one race are classified as multiple races. A vaccine coverage percentage cannot be calculated for people classified as NH Other race or NH Unknown race since there are not population size estimates for these groups. Data quality assurance activities suggest that in at least some cases NH Other may represent a missing value. Vaccine coverage estimates in specific race/ethnicity groups may be underestimated as result of the classification of records as NH Unknown Race or NH Other Race. Connecticut COVID-19 Vaccine Program providers are required to report information on all COVID-19 vaccine doses administered to CT WiZ, the Connecticut Immunization Information System. This includes doses given to residents of CT and to residents of other states vaccinated in CT. Data on doses administered to CT residents out-of-state are being added to CT WiZ jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction. Doses administered by some Federal entities (including Department of Defense, Department of Correction, Department of Veteran’s Affairs, Indian Health Service) are not yet reported to CT WiZ. Data reported here reflect the vaccination records reported to CT WiZ. However, once CT residents who have received doses in each jurisdiction are added to CT WiZ, the records for residents of that jurisdiction vaccinated in CT are removed. For example, when CT residents vaccinated in NYC were added, NYC residents vaccinated in CT were removed. Note: This dataset takes the place of the original "COVID-19 Vaccinations by Race/Ethnicity" dataset (https://data.ct.gov/Health-and-Human-Services/COVID-19-Vaccinations-by-Race-Ethnicity/xkga-ifz3 ), which will not be updated after 5/20/2021 and “COVID-19 Vaccinations by Race / Ethnicity” dataset (https://data.ct.gov/Health-and-Human-Services/COVID-19-Vaccinations-by-Race-Ethnicity/ybkg-w5x2), which will not be updated after 10/20/2021.
