Public can now track how many residents have received first and second dose
San Rafael, CA – Interested in keeping tabs on the number of Marin County residents receiving COVID-19 vaccines from health care providers? It’s now online, courtesy of Marin County Public Health.
The new dashboard is updated daily with cumulative statistics provided by the California Immunization Registry and the California Department of Public Health. The running total will reflect the number of people who live in Marin who have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine from area hospitals and clinics as well as from Marin County Public Health points of dispensing. The dashboard keeps a running total of percentages of local residents who have received one or two doses.
People who work but do not live in Marin are not included in the data even if they received their dose in the county. It also does not include inmates at San Quentin State Prison or people receiving doses at local pharmacies. The data factors in a two-day lag time.
“We’re tracking this information to guide our strategies, and we feel it’s important to share with the public to monitor our progress,” said County Public Health Officer Dr. Matt Willis. “It’s exciting to see how many people are being vaccinated every day, and we hope the dashboard can help eliminate some of the mystery of the vaccine distribution process.”
For months, Marin County Public Health has uploaded COVID-19 cases by geography, demographic trends, key indicators, hospitalizations, deaths, and other data to is surveillance webpage.
Its vaccine webpage includes more about dose distribution, scheduling appointments, facts and myths about COVID-19, and answers to frequently asked questions about the virus. In addition, Marin Public Health launched a vaccine interest form this week to allow all Marin residents to sign-up to be notified when they are eligible to receive the vaccine.
