Want to see how many people in your area have received their first shot of the COVID-19 vaccine? Now you can check how many doses have been administered in every Chicago ZIP code, thanks to this new publicly available dataset from the city's Department of Health and Human Services.
You can view the data—which is updated daily—in a chart, but it's somewhat easier to digest in map form: The map shows the cumulative number of residents who have been vaccinated in a given Chicago ZIP code, plus the total percentage of the population that has received the first dose. The chart gets a little more expansive, noting how many residents have received the vaccine each day as well as the total number of residents who have completed the vaccine series (i.e. received both doses, though no one has as of January 4).
The city is currently in the 1A phase of its vaccine rollout plan, in which vaccines will be administered to healthcare workers and long-term care facility residents—a process that Chicago health officials say could last through mid-February. The next phase will focus on frontline essential workers and people over the age of 75; it's expected that all adult Chicagoans will be able to receive the vaccine by late 2021. Until then, take a look at the latest version of the map for updates on the city's progress, and keep wearing that mask!
