Vaccination rates appear similar among the different health equity quartiles (a metric of socio-economic factors).
In quartile 2, the least healthy quartile represented in Santa Cruz County, 69.8% of the population is at least partially vaccinated, compared to 70.4 and 70.3 in quartiles 3 and 4, respectively.
