COVID-19 Vaccine Dashboard

COVID-19 Vaccine Dashboard

The next COVID-19 Vaccine Dashboard update will be on Tuesday, January 19. After that, this dashboard will be updated Tuesdays through Saturdays.

The data in the dashboard includes the vaccines available in Vermont (currently, Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna). Data is based on date reported to the Vermont Immunization Registry and does not reflect date of vaccination. Information reflects counts reported by the end of the previous day. Data is subject to change.

Read the notes below to learn more about what is reflected in dashboard.

Notes

The data in the dashboard includes the vaccines available in Vermont (currently, Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna).

Overall progress shows the percent of the population (of those who are older than 16 years old) that have received at least one dose of the vaccine in Vermont. People under 16 are not approved to receive the vaccine that is currently available and are not included in the overall progress tracker.

Vaccines administered reflects the total number of doses that have been given to people.

Total people started indicates the number of people who received the first dose of the vaccine.

Total people completed indicates the number of people who completed both doses of the vaccine.

Total people vaccinated shows the number of people who received at least one dose over time.

The dashboard includes the percent of the population by age, sexrace, and ethnicity that is vaccinated. Age and sex information are rarely missing for immunization records. Race and ethnicity information are not required fields in the Immunization Registry and are missing more often. Information on race and ethnicity is provided by the practice providing the immunization. If their patient record does not include race and ethnicity or they choose not to send it, it will not be available in the Immunization Registry.

View county-level data by selecting an individual county. Race and ethnicity data are not available at the county level due to small numbers. Select multiple counties, by holding down the control button on your keyboard, to view combined data for multiple counties.

Vermont residents who were vaccinated in Vermont are reflected in the dashboard.

Non-Vermont residents who were vaccinated in Vermont are reflected in the vaccine administered, total people started, and total people completed numbers. They are not reflected in the county-level data or overall progress numbers.  

People who were vaccinated in a clinical trial are not reflected in the dashboard.

Data Sources

The Vermont Immunization Registry (IMR) is a confidential and computerized system for maintaining immunization records. First made available to providers in July 2004, it was designed, developed, and is operated by the Vermont Department of Health. State law requires reporting to the IMR.

Information is submitted to the IMR via HL7 message, periodic files sent for import, and manual entry.

Those reporting to the IMR include:

  • Provider Offices – over 90%
  • All hospitals, except Veterans Administration
  • Pharmacies – 86%
  • The five largest health insurers in Vermont

 Information on vaccinations provided to Vermont residents outside of Vermont include:

  • People seeking care in New Hampshire at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center
  • People under 18 who are vaccinated in New York

IMR staff remove duplicate records, as the same information may be submitted from multiple sources (for example, insurer and medical practice).

It is possible that an immunization might be “missing” from the IMR. Due to errors in recording immunization information, an HL7 message will not be transmitted to the IMR. This does not happen often and the IMR staff conducts regular monitoring to identify these issues.

Vermont population estimates used to calculate vaccination rates for age and sex are based on Vermont Immunization Registry (IMR) data. Estimates used to calculate rates by race and ethnicity are based on data published by the Vermont Health Department.
