A new data map by the Vermont Department of Health released Wednesday shows vaccination rates by town.
The map shows the percentages of Vermonters age 12 and older who have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
The map comes as Vermont races to reach the goal of 80%-vaccinated set by Gov. Phil Scott. When that milestone is reached, all remaining COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted.
Updated weekly on Thursdays, the map includes data reported to the Vermont Immunization Registry.
In Essex, 71-80% of eligible residents are vaccinated. This is approximately 15,541-17,512 residents, based on the town's 2019 population of 21,890.
Essex's vaccination rate is ahead of Colchester's, where 61-70% of its near 18,000 residents are vaccinated. Williston is 71-80% vaccinated and Jericho is 81-90%.
Chittenden County as a whole has reached the governor's threshold with 81.1% vaccinated residents.
As of Wednesday, 433,581 eligible Vermonters received at least one dose. Approximately 11,000 Vermonters must be vaccinated before Scott fully reopens the state.
