HOUSTON — Want to see how many of your neighbors are vaccinated or not? We have a tool for that on KHOU.com.
The colors on the map below are based on this scale: the darker red, the fewer people are vaccinated. The darker green, the more people are vaccinated. All of this data comes from the Texas Department of State Health Services. The vaccination rates are updated daily.

A few of these ZIP codes show vaccination rates higher than 100%. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, some are just fast-growing areas where the population boomed in the past year. DSHS says others are the result of a reporting error.
For example, the state reports 201% of 77030’s eligible population is vaccinated. This is the Texas Medical Center. Not only do a lot of healthcare workers live around there, but a lot of people got vaccinated there. Instead of putting their home ZIP code, some may have accidentally put the ZIP code where they got the vaccine.
