Black Americans have surpassed White Americans in rate of vaccination by double digits, according to a new NBC News poll.

Black and Latino Americans lagged behind in vaccination rates for months as polls showed hesitancy among various communities, but vaccination rates among Black people have dramatically increased during the Delta surge.

That increase is reflected in the NBC News/Hart Research Associates/Public Opinion Strategies poll released Tuesday. Respondents were asked "Have you already gotten the vaccine?"

Among all adults, 69 percent say they have gotten the vaccine, with 13 percent saying they will not take the vaccine, and the rest either unsure or expressing some willingness to eventually get vaccinated.

Black Americans were the racial group most likely to say they've been vaccinated at 76 percent, with Latinos also above the average at 71 percent, and White people at 66 percent.

The lowest self-reported rate of vaccinations was among respondents who voted for former President Donald Trump in 2020. Only 50 percent of thoe Trump voters say they have been vaccinated.

Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick drew harsh criticism last week when he tried to blame the spread of Covid in his state on Black Americans. Patrick told Fox News' Laura Ingraham that "the biggest group in most states are African-Americans who have not been vaccinated. The last time I checked, over 90 percent of them vote for Democrats in their major cities and major counties."

The NBC News poll also found that "urban residents" were much more likely (at 79 percent) to be vaccinated than "rural residents" at 52 percent — a 27-point spread.

I dont think polls are quite the way to determine who has been vaccinated, but having said that, this information strongly suggests that the vaccine deniers are mainly white rural Trump supporters. What a shock ! Not !

How long will this country pretend this cohort has not been a menace to our society?

You're right about the poll determining but being as how you needed to emphasize the Trump supporters, I wonder how many of them responded with "hone of your damned business" or just said no due to wanting to bullshit. It would seem to me that somewhere the CDC or Johns Hopkins or someone doing the counting doesn't have data, real data. I don't remember if on my application for the vaccine if it asked race...............or the Walgreen's just recorded it after seeing me in person. Who knows?

The poll was gathered from individuals themselves, not from vaccine providers.

No official numbers from the authorities, just a poll.

How accurate is the CDC?

A month ago they admitted they had no racial data on 42% of the people vaccinated only once.

4 states don't participate.

The margin of error is as wide as a valley and yet people including the widely quoted KFF.com reports keep singling out blacks.

Lie, lies and damned statistics.

At the end of the day 57 million white Americans are still the problem,

not 15 million blacks, not the other 27 million minorities.

A mini vaccination surge has followed the rise of the Covid-19 delta variant in the U.S., especially among Black and Hispanic Americans living in hard hit states.

In five Southern states now with more than 300 cases per 100,000 people Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Missouri —Black and Hispanic people are getting vaccinated more rapidly than White people. Over the last month, Mississippi saw the biggest increase among its Black population, inoculating 5.8% of that group compared to 4% of White people. Meanwhile, over that same time period, Alabama saw the biggest spike among Hispanic people, vaccinating 7.4% of that group compared to 5.1% of White people.

Overall, in the last four weeks, states tracked by Bloomberg vaccinated 4.3% of Hispanic people, 3.7% of Black people and 2.6% of White people.

Recent polls have found Republicans and White evangelicals are least likely to say they’ll get the shots, which may account for less uptake among White people in certain states, especially in the South, Midwest and West . Since cases, hospitalizations and deaths   are now primarily  among the unvaccinated, groups with less vaccine uptake are most vulnerable.

Our tracker has data from  45 states, D.C. and two cities  that cover 95.5% of people  and 93.6% of doses administered, with race or ethnicity information available for more than 148 million vaccine recipients.

Data on vaccinations among Native American and Native Alaskan groups are excluded because the Indian Health Service, which is coordinating much of the rollout, hasn’t reported state-by-state numbers. Alaska is the only state not relying on the IHS, and has vaccinated more than 62% of this group.

Not All Demographic Data Is Equal

Four states do not provide race or ethnicity data at all, while one provides data that’s difficult to use

The reasons for such wide variation in data quality remain unclear. Providers are supposed to collect demographic information. They might not always ask for or record it correctly. Some people prefer not to share their background or might not understand why it’s important to do so, according to Nirav Shah, the director of the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention, who spoke during a press briefing in February. Mississippi, for its part, has identified issues with sending electronic health records into state registry.

Early indications of inequity should be a clarion call for better, more complete data on race and ethnicity. Without it, we won’t be able to fully assess how well—or how poorly—the U.S. is serving all of its residents.

The margin of error for the poll is above 3 pct so the vaccination rates actually overlap based on demographics.

Hmmmm....asked someone yesterday for proof that Black Americans are the least likely to be vaccinated. I got trash talk.

The lowest self-reported rate of vaccinations was among respondents who voted for former President Donald Trump in 2020. Only 50 percent of those Trump voters say they have been vaccinated.

I have seen this played out in my own everyday experience. 

There is also anecdotal evidence of this in the fact Trump was booed at his own rally when he said vaccines are good.

Yeah...that was pretty funny. They boo their Lord and Savior when he tells them to get vaxxed. I bet they would boo Jesus Christ Himself if He were to come down from the heavens and call them all sinners

They’d kill him if he pulled some of that socialism bullshit.  Jesus needs to be a faithful follower, not a leader.

You do realize they would lump him in with those damn socialists...there was a song & I cannot remember the name or who it was by that was about what Jesus would think if he came back today & what he would look like.  It is driving me nuts.

Perhaps this link will serve better than the above poll...

I have followed this for quite a while and the Black, Non-Hispanic has improved dramatically over the past few weeks.

Data from 171,088,954 people fully vaccinated. Race/Ethnicity was available for 108,249,004 (63.3%) people fully vaccinated.

That sounds like an insurmountable problem in evaluating the stats.

Yet you have a poll based on ...

1000 Adults, including 600 respondents with a cell phone only.

Thank you JR.  I pointed that out in an earlier KFF report

and the typical response "but the blacks"

The data amounts to less value than a poll.

Good news.

But, like all polls, the numbers can be manipulated to attain any predetermined outcome desired.

Were the numbers of people polled equal?  Same number of blacks, whites, Latinos, Asians, etc.?

Were the numbers of people dispersed equally geographically?  Urban, suburban, rural?

And were the answers actually true or were people just playing with an annoying phone call interrupting their meal or favorite TV show?   For my part, I love playing with fools that call me.   I know a computer makes the initial call and transfers the people to a live agent, but I'm on the Do Not Call list and know that the programmers simply program a block of numbers 0001 to 9999 in certain area and office codes.  They're too lazy to remove those of us that don't want to be bothered by them.
