47% of Dare County residents fully vaccinated

Avon has highest vaccination rate, Stumpy Point the lowest

About 47% of Dare County residents have been fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus — either with two Moderna or Pfizer injections or one Johnson & Johnson shot — according to new data compiled by the Dare County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). This information also breaks down the percentage of vaccinated residents in the county by zip code and by age group.

As explained by DHHS Communications Specialist Kelly Nettnin, the numbers are not exact due to such issues as address changes and discrepancies, and they are based on data from the 2010 Census. But they give a good sense of who has and who hasn’t rolled up their sleeves so far.

The Dare county community/zip code with the highest rate of full vaccination is Avon, where virtually all of the 400 or so residents there have received their shots. Tiny Waves is next with a 90% vaccination rate. At the other end of the spectrum, only about 20% of Stumpy Point’s estimated 225 residents have completed their shots. Wanchese is the next lowest, with about 22% of its population vaccinated.

On Hatteras Island, it is Hatteras itself that has the highest vaccination rate, at about 50%,  although Salvo (about 47%), Rodanthe (about 46%) and Frisco (about 44%) are very close behind.

In the considerably more populous towns north of the bridge, Kitty Hawk, which shares a zip code with Southern Shores and Duck, leads the way with about 51% of its residents vaccinated. Nags Head is next, at about 49%. The zip code with the largest population, Kill Devil Hills, has about 36% of its residents fully vaccinated. Manteo trails closely behind, at about 32%.

The DHHS vaccination data by age group is broken up into five-year increments. Thus far, no one under the age of 16 has been vaccinated because a COVID-vaccine has not yet been approved for that cohort — although there are reports that a Pfizer vaccine for 12- to 15-year-olds is likely be greenlighted very soon.

The vaccination rate by age follows a logical pattern. Put simply, the older one is, the more likely he or she is to have visited the vaccine clinic as older Americans became an early priority for the vaccination campaign.

The vaccine rates for those in the age groups from 15-49 range from about 15% (ages 15-19) to about 30% (ages 45-49.) In the three age groups between 50 and 64, the vaccination rates are tightly bunched between about 36% and 39%.

But once you get to the senior citizens who are 65 and older, virtually everyone in Dare County is fully vaccinated, according to the DHHS data. The only group where there appears to be a few residents who aren’t fully vaccinated is comprised of those between 70-74, where the rate is about 94%.

    Glad to see based on the percentages that Avon is counting vaccine doses like the Dems counted Biden votes nationwide.

    Something is wrong with the math. If fully vaccinated is 14,142 and 35,652 is the total population of Dare Co (2010 Census) the the % vaccinated is approximately 39.6%….not 47.
    Would be even lower if using 2020 numbers and not including the NRPOs that came from Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, etc. to get their vaccines here.

    @Peoples…I agree. The spreadsheet someone created contains an error. The percentage for each zip code is correct but under the % vaccinated column there is an incorrect formula
    in the bottom cell. Either an AVERAGE or SUM / COUNT formula was used to calculate 46.78 which is not correct. The percentage vaccinated would be 39.67% of the total 2010 census population. I am presuming that the NRPOs who received vaccines in Dare were not counted in NC vaccination data nor used in this resident chart.
