Who is more likely to get a COVID vaccine, a man or a woman?

According to recent CNN data, women are taking the lead in the vaccine race.

A CNN analysis found that roughly twice as many women are getting vaccinated for COVID-19.

The data was from a dozen states that publish demographic information online.

In at least three of these states, Pennsylvania, South Dakota and Nebraska, records that include gender say women account for more than seven in 10 people vaccinated.

Experts say this may reflect more on eligibility, being that healthcare workers and seniors are vaccinated first.

Women live longer and they also represent 76% of full-time health care workers, according to a 2019 report from the Census Bureau.
