Study: COVID Vaccination Rates Higher Among Gay, Lesbian Adults

Description (Dublin Core)

This is a news story for US News by Steven Ross Johnson. This story is about a study on how LGBTQ+ people are more likely to have been vaccinated compared to the general population. In a survey published by the CDC, 85% of gay and lesbian adults received at least one dose of the COVID vaccine compared to just 76% of heterosexual adults. Within the LGBTQ+ community, gay men had the highest vaccination rates at 89%, compared to 81% of women. Nearly 76% of trans and nonbinary adults report having had at least one dose. This study also noted income disparities among LGBTQ+ adults. Those with a $75K income or above and LGBTQ+ had a 94% vaccination rate. For those LGBTQ+ adults below poverty level, the vaccination rate was 74%. Along racial lines, White LGBTQ+ individuals had a 92% vaccination rate. Black LGBTQ+ adults reported vaccination rates of 67%. Overall, this article shows that LGBTQ+ individuals are more likely to have less vaccine hesitancy compared to the general population, though income and race make a difference when those elements are combined.
