COVID-19 Vaccine Hesitancy in Your Community

To make your COVID-19 vaccination outreach more efficient, you can use this map to see where people may be more hesitant about getting vaccinated.  

COVID-19 Vaccine Hesitancy Data in the United States, by County


The map shows COVID-19 vaccination hesitancy estimates by county, plus additional facts to help you understand your outreach areas. Zoom in on an area and click on a county to see the information.



Due to the change in the survey instrument regarding intention to vaccinate, our estimates for "hesitant or unsure" or "hesitant" derived from April 14-26, 2021, are not directly comparable with prior Household Pulse Survey data and should not be used to examine trends in hesitancy.


About U.S. Vaccine Hesitancy Data
  • Explore all data in table format.
  • Vaccine hesitancy estimates are derived from surveys conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau.
  • The CDC's Social Vulnerability Index (SVI) summarizes the extent to which a community is socially vulnerable to disaster. Factors include economic data as well as data regarding education, family characteristics, housing language ability, ethnicity, and vehicle access. SVI ranges from 0 (least vulnerable) to 1 (most vulnerable).
  • The Surgo Covid-19 Vaccine Coverage Index (CVAC) captures supply- and demand-related challenges that may hinder rapid, widespread COVID-19 vaccine coverage in U.S. counties, through five specific themes: historic undervaccination, sociodemographic barriers, resource-constrained healthcare system, healthcare accessibility barriers, and irregular care-seeking behaviors. The CVAC measures the level of concern for a difficult rollout on a range from 0 (lowest concern) to 1 (highest concern). The CVAC Index can also be categorized as follows: Very Low (0.0-0.19), Low (0.20-0.39), Moderate (0.40-0.59), High (0.60-0.79), or Very High (0.80-1.0) Concern.
