COVID-19 Vaccine Dashboard

COVID-19 Vaccine Dashboard

The COVID-19 Vaccine Dashboard is updated Tuesdays through Saturdays.

As was set out in the Vermont Forward plan, as of June 14 80% of eligible Vermonters have been vaccinated, allowing the Governor to lift restrictions.

Vermont Forward percentages draw on state-level data from CDC, which includes some data not reported to the Vermont Department of Health. CDC data is more inclusive, but less detailed, than Vermont Department of Health data. As a result, CDC statewide estimates of vaccination rates may differ from those reported in the dashboard.

The data in the dashboard includes the vaccines available in Vermont (currently, Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson). 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. This data is more detailed than CDC’s state-level data, which allows us to look at differences in vaccination rates by county, race, ethnicity, age and gender.

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, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson).

Doses received includes doses received by the State of Vermont or by the Federal Pharmacy Partners. It does not include Veterans Affairs/Department of Defense doses.

Doses administered reflects the total number of doses that have been given to people in Vermont, or were reported to Vermont. For example, we may receive the report of a Vermont resident who was vaccinated at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

Vermont Forward percentages use data from CDC, which includes some data not reported to the Vermont Department of Health. As a result, these estimates may differ from those reported elsewhere in the dashboard.

Percent of all Vermont residents with at least one vaccine dose shows the percent of the entire population (all ages) that have received at least one dose of the vaccine. Note that not all Vermont residents are currently eligible for vaccination (i.e., children ages 0–11).

Percentages reported as 95% at the county-level indicate >=95%. Actual value is suppressed due to large numbers to protect individual’s health information. An additional value may also be suppressed since the total values include the true totals. The number of people reported stops increasing once the percentage reaches 95%. At the state-level, numbers and percentages are capped at 100%. Metrics could be greater than 100% for various reasons including incomplete denominator data or potential data reporting errors.

Total people started indicates the number of people who have only received the first dose of a two-dose vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer).

Total people completed indicates the number of people who completed all doses of the vaccine required (i.e., one for Johnson & Johnson and two for Moderna or Pfizer).

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

View county-level data by selecting an individual county. Hold down the control button on your keyboard and select multiple counties to view combined data. Click “Race/Ethnicity” or “Ethnicity” to view county vaccination rates by race/ethnicity or ethnicity.

Vermont residents who were vaccinated in Vermont, or were reported to Vermont, are reflected in the dashboard. For example, we may receive the report of a Vermont resident who was vaccinated at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

Non-Vermont residents who were vaccinated in Vermont are reflected in the doses administered, total people started, and total people completed numbers. They are not reflected in the county-level data or any reported percentages

Click on the top right button to view the percent of the population by age, sexrace, and ethnicity that is vaccinated.

Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) includes Black or African American; Native American, Indigenous, or First Nation; Pacific Islander; Asian; two or more races; and Hispanic.

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 who are vaccinated in New York

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

It is possible that an immunization might be “missing” from the registry. 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 are based on data published by the Vermont Health Department.
