The Illinois Department of Public Health is now reporting coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccination data on its website, with data to be updated daily and additional data to be provided as available. It is important to note that vaccine distribution figures are reported in real time, while vaccine administration figures are reported with as much as a 72-hour lag.
"Throughout the pandemic we have used data to guide our decisions and actions and we will continue to do so for vaccine administration," IDPH Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike said. "Illinois is a very diverse state, geographically and in the makeup of its population. It is important to track where we are seeing both high and low vaccination rates. These data will help us understand what actions we can take to end this pandemic as quickly as possible."
Data on the IDPH website include the number of doses administered, the vaccination rate per population, and what percent of the population is fully vaccinated. These data are broken down by county. The website includes information on the COVID-19 Community Vulnerability Index (CCVI), also broken down by county. The CCVI looks at indicators such as socioeconomic status, household composition, type of housing and transportation, epidemiological facts, as well as access to health care. Additional data and means to track vaccination rates will be added as available.
Vaccination data can be found on the IDPH website at www.dph.illinois.gov/covid19/vaccinedata.
