Starting Oct. 25, the dashboard now includes data on the new bivalent boosters.
Bivalent booster vaccination rates are lower, as they were approved more recently. However, they are an important measure of how well Vermonters are protected against the variants of the virus that are currently circulating.
This data includes the vaccines available in Vermont (Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and Novavax), and is based on the date reported to the Vermont Immunization Registry - not the date of vaccination. The data reflects counts made at the end of the previous day and is subject to change.
This information is more detailed than CDC’s state-level data, and allows us to look at differences in vaccination rates by county, race, ethnicity, age and gender.
Using a mobile device? View the dashboard here.
Using Internet Explorer 11 or an older unsupported browser? See the dashboard here.
Statewide data are shown on the “Overall” and “Statewide” tabs.
County-level data are shown on the “By County” tab. To view combined data, hold down the control button on your keyboard and select multiple counties.
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 in New Hampshire at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. The dashboard defaults to showing data for Vermont residents only. If the ‘VT only’ box is unchecked, it will show all doses, including out-of-state residents who were vaccinated in and/or reported to Vermont. Doses administered to people who have passed away are included.
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. This is shown with an *. The number of people reported stops increasing once the percentage reaches 95% at the county-level. 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.
Percentages are based on population estimates. Population estimates, in some cases, may underestimate or overestimate the true population number. People who passed away prior to January 1, 2022 are not included.
Data are suppressed when there are fewer than six people vaccinated in a subgroup. This is shown with an *. See here to learn more about the general data suppression rules applied on Vermont Department of Health vaccine data reports.
People completed primary series indicates the number of people aged 0+ who completed all primary series doses of the vaccine (in other words, one dose of Johnson & Johnson, or two doses of Moderna, Novavax or Pfizer for those aged 5+, or three doses of Pfizer for those aged 0-4).
For those who received the first dose of a primary series in another state AND received the second dose in Vermont for a two-dose primary series vaccine: If the Immunization Registry (IMR) does not have a record of their previous vaccination, some second doses may be counted as their first dose. The same issue may occur for the first and second doses in a three-dose primary series.
Updated booster doses include people who received an updated (bivalent) booster dose of Pfizer or Moderna since September 1,2022.
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 following statewide numbers when the ‘VT only’ filter is unchecked: doses administered, total # of people completed primary series, and total # of people receiving an updated booster. They are not reflected in the county-level data or any percentages (except donut charts showing type/brand of vaccine).
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.
The categorization of male/female for some people is based on sex assignment at birth, while for others, it is based on gender. This is due to the varying sources and ways the information is reported. Gender not reported may mean the provider did not collect that information, the patient did not provide it, or the provider or the patient selected a category other than male, female, or non-binary.
Non-binary means a person whose gender identity is not exclusively male or female, including, but not limited to, a person whose gender identity is intersex, agender, amalgagender, androgynous, bigender, demigender, genderfluid, genderqueer, gender non-conforming, neutrois, nonbinary, pangender, third sex, transgender, Two-Spirit, or otherwise unspecified by the person.
Age is based on a person’s age as of the start of the current quarter. For example, data reported on January 13, 2022 will be based on a person’s age as of January 1, 2022.

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 vaccine providers to report 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
- 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 (for example, insurer and medical practice).
It is possible that an immunization might be “missing” from the registry. 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 Department of Health
Population Estimates for VERMONTERS AGED 0 AND OLDER
The number of Vermonters aged 0 and older is based on 2019 state population numbers. The figures below are the denominators used in the dashboard.
Population Estimates by County and Race/Ethnicity
Population Estimates by Race
number of vermonters aged 0+
|Black or African American||8,774|
|Native American, Indigenous or First Nation||2,441|
|Two or more races||12,461|
BIPOC refers to Black, Indigenous, and people of color.

vermont open geodata portal
The Geodata Portal includes case counts, hospitalizations, deaths, PCR testing and more.
The COVID-19 data provided in the Vermont Geodata portal will soon be reduced, as most of this data no longer provides an accurate picture of COVID-19 activity in Vermont. The Statewide Daily Counts, Hospitalizations by Date, and Weekly Cases by Race and Age tables will be updated until March. After that, updated COVID-19 information will continue to be found in the COVID-19 Surveillance Report.
