Press Release from CDPHE
Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) updated its COVID-19 vaccination data dashboard with additional metrics earlier this month. The new data provides additional transparency about vaccination distribution across the state.
New data include the total count of vaccine providers that have administered COVID-19 vaccine and how many people have been immunized, according to data reported to the Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS). The public can now view how many vaccines have been administered by vaccine type-- as well as by daily, weekly, and cumulative administration counts. The blue “i” buttons in the upper right of the dashboard provide detailed information about the data.
“We are pleased to add additional data metrics, as we onboard more vaccine providers and get more doses administered,” said Scott Bookman, incident commander, COVID-19 response. “While we expect the distribution to last for several months, we plan to be as transparent as possible with the public about where we are in the process. Eventually, everyone who wants a vaccine will be able to get a vaccine-- and that’s truly an exciting thing.”
CDPHE updates the vaccine dashboard every day at 4 p.m. MT with information reported through the previous day in Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS), a confidential, population-based, secure computerized system that collects and consolidates vaccine and exemption data for Coloradans of all ages from a variety of sources. Providers have 72 hours to report vaccine administration to Colorado Immunization System (CIIS). CDPHE then submits to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention without any personally identifying information.
CDPHE will continue to expand the information provided on the dashboard as more people are vaccinated across the state.
Until the vaccine is widely available and community immunity is achieved, it is important that everyone continue to follow public health protocols to slow the spread of the virus-- wear a mask, maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others, avoid in-person interactions with people outside your household, wash your hands often, and stay home when you are sick.
