Using data to plan vaccine outreach

  • 28,000 left over vaccine doses from the Long-Term Care Facility program were redistributed to 34 pharmacies across the state. This sent doses where they were needed most and kept them from being wasted.
  • 10 census tracts were prioritized for National Guard mobile vaccination teams.
  • Social vulnerability and other information was combined to determine “high priority” areas. Applications for vaccine providers were fast tracked in these areas.
  • Social vulnerability data was combined with COVID-19 case and vaccination rates to create an assessment to improve equitable vaccination efforts in high-risk areas.
