Track COVID Vaccinations With These Websites
Less than a month after the first vaccine against COVID-19 was authorized for use in the US, the CDC reports that we have distributed 17 million doses and vaccinated 4.8 million people. (Full protection requires two doses, so most people have only gotten their first.) If you’d like to track the rollout of the vaccine, here and abroad, here are the websites that will help you do so.
CDC vaccine tracker
The CDC’s page is here, and it shows the total doses distributed and administered, alongside a map showing how many people per state have received a dose of the vaccine, as seen in the image above.
You can look at the state map in either number of people vaccinated per 100,000 population, or just a raw count of people vaccinated so far. There are also counts available for US territories, plus four agencies: the Bureau of Prisons, the Department of Defense, Indian Health Services, and the Veterans Health Administration.
The page also includes a count of vaccines distributed and administered to long-term care facilities (like nursing homes). So far 3.2 million doses have been shipped for use in these facilities, and just under half a million have been given to residents and staff.
Our World in Data has a page with a variety of charts on vaccine administration in all the world’s countries. You can watch an animated map that shows doses per 100,000 people ticking up over time, an animated bar chart of the same, and further maps of total doses administered.
There are also maps and charts showing doses administered per day, both in total and as a proportion of population. Another map color-codes countries according to their policy: whether they are vaccinating one or several high-risk groups, or whether vaccine availability is intended to be universal. (The US is currently listed as vaccinating two of the vulnerable groups, although not all states are following the CDC policy.)
