VDH reports two more COVID deaths for 199 total

Tue, 02/23/2021 - 11:47am -- tim

Vermont Business Magazine Governor Scott announced today that if you are fully vaccinated plus two weeks you can gather with one and only one other household even if they are not vaccinated. Also if fully vaccinated you may travel in or out of the state without quarantine. And, the Vermont Department of Health on Tuesday is reporting 82 new cases of COVID-19 for a total of 14,691 and two more deaths for a statewide total of 199. VDH is also reminding Vermonters that they can create an account to get vaccinated even if they are not eligible yet to receive one. VDH announced today that it will open up the next vaccination phase for those 65 or older on March 1.

The governor also said that he learned Tuesday morning from his weekly White House meeting with governors that Vermont will receive another 1,000 doses of vaccine which will bring the state's weekly total of initial vaccines to 14,500 doses, at a minimum, for at least the next three weeks.

Also, Johnson & Johnson could get its emergency approval for its vaccine this week. If they do, Scott said it would bring another 2,000 doses a week to Vermont.

COVID-19 in Vermont

COVID-19 VACCINE DASHBOARD

The COVID-19 Vaccine Dashboard is updated Tuesdays through Saturdays.

The data in the dashboard includes the vaccines available in Vermont (currently, Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna). Data is based on date reported to the Vermont Immunization Registry and does not reflect date of vaccination. Information reflects counts reported by the end of the previous day. Data is subject to change.

The data in the dashboard includes the vaccines available in Vermont (currently, Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna).

Overall progress shows the percent of the population (of those who are older than 16 years old) that have received at least one dose of the vaccine in Vermont. People under 16 are not approved to receive the vaccine that is currently available and are not included in the overall progress tracker.

Vaccines administered reflects the total number of doses that have been given to people.

Doses received shows the total doses received from the federal government. This number may be higher than the number of doses administered due to a lag in reporting the number of vaccine doses administered. In addition, some of the doses received so far are preparing to go to long-term care facilities and hospitals for upcoming clinics. We give out more doses of vaccine each week to facilities holding clinics, so the amount we have on hand fluctuates depending on how many clinics are scheduled and the allocation we’ve received from the federal government.

Total people started indicates the number of people who received the first dose of the vaccine.

Total people completed indicates the number of people who completed both doses of the vaccine.

Total people vaccinated shows the number of people who received at least one dose over time.

The dashboard includes the percent of the population by age, sexrace, and ethnicity that is vaccinated. Age and sex information are rarely missing for immunization records. Race and ethnicity information are not required fields in the Immunization Registry and are missing more often. Information on race and ethnicity is provided by the practice providing the immunization. If their patient record does not include race and ethnicity or they choose not to send it, it will not be available in the Immunization Registry.

View county-level data by selecting an individual county. Race and ethnicity data are not available at the county level due to small numbers. Select multiple counties, by holding down the control button on your keyboard, to view combined data for multiple counties.

Vermont residents who were vaccinated in Vermont are reflected in the dashboard.

Non-Vermont residents who were vaccinated in Vermont are reflected in the vaccine administered, total people started, and total people completed numbers. They are not reflected in the county-level data or overall progress numbers.
