A tiny, rural, Republican NY county breaks COVID-19 stereotypes and boats one of the highest vaccination rates in the country

Hamilton County, New York – a tiny, rural, Republican-leaning county northwest of Albany – has one of the largest vaccination rates in the nation, defying stereotypes about who will take the vaccine.

According to federal data and analysis, the county has a vaccination rate of 65 percent, which is significantly higher than the national average of 37 percent.

This contradicts some polls, which show Republicans are less likely to get the vaccine: According to a YouGov/Economist poll conducted in January, only about 40% of Republicans said they would get the vaccine.

Republicans are more accepting of the vaccine than Democrats, according to a new poll of 1,500 adults conducted last week: Sixty-two percent of Republicans said they had or would get the vaccine, while 87 percent of Democrats said they would.

During the 2020 election, former President Donald Trump received 68 percent of the vote in Hamilton County.

The county is entirely in the federally protected Adirondack Park, which doesn’t allow for development, and has a population of less than 4,836, according to the 2010 Census, which is the least populated county in the state.

According to the source, there are infrastructure and technology issues, such as spotty broadband and cell service, as well as the lack of hospitals and pharmacies.

Hamilton County Board Chairman Bill Farber, a Republican, said, “We’ve watched nationally this political fight over COVID.” ‘Didn’t we overcome the odds?

According to Farber, this was due in part to the vaccination campaign’s grassroots nature, which was separate from political warfare.
