Case rate

The number of new confirmed cases of COVID-19 by ZIP code indicates communities with relatively high and low rates of transmission. The following map and table show the number of test-diagnosed cases over the past seven days per every 100,000 residents in each zip code.

Vaccination rate

This map shows the percentage of residents of all ages in each ZIP code who have had at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine (currently, only people ages 12 and older are eligible). Where ZIP codes show rates higher than 100%, such as in midtown Manhattan, it may reflect people who used a work address, according to the city health department.

Vaccination rate by ZIP code as of November 29

Tracking over time

Since the city saw its first positive coronavirus test on March 1, the number of tests, new cases, deaths and hospitalizations has varied over time, influenced by city and state government measures as well as precautions taken by New Yorkers.
