(October 2021) Request for Buncombe County, NC: COVID vaccination rates (% of population 12+) by ZIP code

Hi Buncombe County Health Department (and Kassi / Buncombe County Government CC'd),

I'd like to make a public records request for the following information under NC Public Records Law.
If this information is already publicly available online or in some other format, please send me a link:

I'd like to obtain a data set that includes the COVID vaccination rates (% of population 12+) by ZIP code in Buncombe County, NC. I think this data is available broken down by County from NCDHHS -- However, I would like to see it broken down by ZIP code within Buncombe County.

I believe this information was released to the states by the CDC, and some Counties have made it public. I do not believe that Buncombe County has done so yet.

[** Editor's Note: Please note that the sender did not indicate any specific time period for the information being requested. We'll interpret this to mean: "Please provide all records as of the date the query is performed." If it is not possible to process the request without additional info, please let us know any points that may need to be clarified, and we'll ask that the sender resubmits the request through our site.]

Thank you for your assistance!

Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.

Editor’s Note 10/26/21: We apologize for the delay in processing and publishing this request on our site. Sunshine Request is a project built and run by a small team at PRC Applications. We run the site in addition to our primary business. While we will always do our best to process and follow up on requests as quickly as possible, there may be occasional delays, depending on our availability in a given week or month.


The above submission has been been revised for clarity.

Sunshine Request will not fulfill the following types of requests:

☀️ Requests that include profanity, personal statements, opinions, possibly defamatory statements, or other unnecessary info that is not relevant to making a records request.

☀️ Requests that are only informational questions [rather than a specific request for public records], and requests that are not addressed to government entities.

☀️ Requests that are incomplete, non-specific, or vague.

Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to make a request. While we do proofread requests we receive for general spelling and clarity, we may choose not to fulfill the request if it is incomplete, or it is unclear what specific information the requester hopes to receive. In this case, the sender may rewrite and resubmit the request.

☀️ Please be specific:

It is important that what you are requesting is specific and reasonable, and is an actionable records request. Please specify the exact records you’d like to receive, rather than any “possible” or “potential” info that could be searched. Remember that the larger your request, the more time it usually takes to fulfill. Specificity will often help reduce the amount of time needed to process the request.

It is important that a request has a clearly written and complete Subject and Message, and also specifies the Government Entity (or entities), City and/or County, and State to which the request should be sent. If applicable, please also include any responsive timelines for the info that should be requested.

Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to write and make a successful request. If you have additional questions about our site or how to make requests, please check out our FAQs or Policies page.

Thank you for using Sunshine Request!
