New Vaccination Dashboard Tracks Outcomes

Comparing vaccinated vs. unvaccinated illustrates COVID-19 vaccine’s impact

San Rafael, CA – Epidemiologists with Marin County Public Health have made it easier for residents to track hyperlocal COVID-19 vaccination statistics by adding new data to its COVID-19 vaccination data webpage.

The new dashboard illustrates local COVID-19 outcomes and compares infection, hospitalization, and death rates of Marin residents who are fully vaccinated vs. unvaccinated. Previous data only compared daily case rates. By interacting with the new dashboard, viewers will have a better understanding of the risks of catching COVID-19, of being hospitalized for COVID-19, or of dying from COVID-19.

“We're committed to using data for local understanding,” said Bethany Dominik, a Marin County Public Health epidemiologist who helped develop the dashboard. “We think it’s important for residents to see the protection vaccines are offering against serious illness and death within our own community.”

Public Health’s key message points about COVID-19 remain the same:

  • The vaccines effectively reduce a person's risk of catching COVID-19 and spreading it to others.
  • The vaccines are highly effective at preventing severe illness from COVID-19 requiring hospitalization.
  • Getting vaccinated dramatically reduces one's risk of dying from COVID-19.

Since early in the pandemic, Marin County Public Health has uploaded and shared COVID-19 case figures by geography, demographic trends, key indicators, hospitalizations, deaths, and other data on its surveillance webpage. In January 2021, staff began posting daily and cumulative statistics provided by the California Immunization Registry and the California Department of Public Health. The running total reflects the number of people who live in Marin who have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine from area hospitals, pharmacies and clinics as well as from Marin County Public Health points of dispensing.

Public Health’s vaccine webpage includes more about dose distribution, scheduling appointments, facts and myths about COVID-19, and answers to frequently asked questions about the virus.
