L.A. County health officials released new data today, showing which areas have the highest rates of residents who are vaccinated against COVID-19, and conversely, which have the lowest.

The bottom line: residents of South and East LA, as well as the San Fernando, San Gabriel, and Antelope Valleys have the lowest coverage rate so far.

While some of the county's most expensive places to live — including Pacific Palisades, Palos Verdes, Manhattan Beach, Beverly Hills, Brentwood, and La Cañada/Flintridge, have the highest.

You can see an overview of the rates here data via the map below (or explore on the Dept. of Public Health website — which allows you to zoom in and see different neighborhoods).

Keep in mind the data is based on the total number of people living in those areas, not how many people there are currently eligible for the vaccine. Still, Dr. Paul Simon, the county health department's chief science officer, says it reflects a worrying trend:

"Despite this limitation, the findings are deeply concerning, and provide further illustration of the deeply-rooted health inequities that exist in our society."

The latest figures also show that more seniors who've gotten the vaccine are white, than any other racial or ethnic group.

They make up about 43% of those age 65 and older who have had at least one dose, while Latino/a seniors account for about 29%. Older Black Angelenos represent less than a quarter of those who have been vaccinated to date.
