Data Collection and Reporting

This study reviews access to COVID-19 vaccination sites in Brooklyn, New York City, to understand vaccination disparities. Using publicly available data, the study analyzes population demographic characteristics, vaccination site location, and distance to vaccination site to see if minority populations are experiencing less access to COVID-19 vaccinations. The results show that the current vaccination sites focus on White, middle-to-upper class communities and the borough has significant vaccination access deserts.
