Nearly 80% of people in the US live within 5 miles of all three Covid-19 vaccines

When Alexandra Leighton set out to get her Covid-19 vaccine, she found herself pleasantly surprised.
Leighton, who produces television commercials, found she could get any of the three Covid-19 vaccines — Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson — within a reasonable drive from her Miami home.
“At the beginning it was horrible — you wanted to get vaccinated, but they didn’t have enough appointments,” she said. “But I found places where you can get whatever vaccine you want. I was like wow, this is incredible.”

Vaccine availability has improved even more since March, when Leighton got her shots. According to an analysis done May 4 for CNN by VaccineFinder, 78.8% of people in the United States live within 5 miles of locations that offer all three vaccines.

“People do have the ability to choose which vaccine is right for them. At this moment, there’s an abundant supply, and people can make the choice for what is right for them personally,” said John Brownstein, co-founder of VaccineFinder.
VaccineFinder powers Vaccines.gov, the federal government website where you can search for Covid-19 vaccines by ZIP code. Searches there show particularly easy access to all three vaccines for people who live in big cities, but even those who live in small towns have a choice of all three, although sometimes it might mean a bit of a drive.
For example, if you live in downtown Zebulon, North Carolina, population 5,917, you’re a three minute drive to Zebulon Drug, where you can get either Pfizer or Moderna. Drive about five minutes and you can get to Walmart, which has Johnson & Johnson.
Even in the smallest city in Kansas — Freeport, population 4 — all three vaccines are available within an hour’s drive. A Moderna or Johnson & Johnson shot is about 20 to 30 minutes away, and for Pfizer you can drive about an hour to Wichita. (These searches were done May 8, and availability could change.)
Brownstein, the chief innovation officer at Boston Children’s Hospital, said he hopes people who are hesitant about getting a vaccine might feel differently once they see they have options.

“There are more opportunities and more choices for people who are on the fence,” he said. “When you empower people to make decisions, I think for some people that will make a difference.”
Brownstein said he personally was happy to get whichever vaccine was offered to him, since all three have been found to be safe and effective. But he understands that others might have preferences.
Leighton, for example, chose Pfizer after she watched a 45-minute National Geographic film, “Mission Possible: The Race for a Vaccine,” about how it was developed. (The documentary “is paid content created for and in collaboration with Pfizer, Inc.” according to the show’s opening slate).
Others will have different criteria. Here’s what we know about the safety and efficacy of each vaccine, based on the Phase 3 clinical trial data that each manufacturer submitted to the US Food and Drug Administration to obtain emergency use authorization.
