IDPH posts statewide COVID-19 vaccine data dashboard

Illinois averages 24,200 vaccines administered daily for past seven days

The Illinois Department of Public Health on Tuesday released statewide and countywide COVID-19 vaccination data.

The data dashboard will have real-time updates of vaccine distribution, while vaccine administration data can have as much as a three-day lag.

As of Monday night, 638,150 doses of vaccine were delivered to providers in Illinois, including Chicago.  In addition, approximately 231,475 doses have been allocated to the federal government’s Pharmacy Partnership Program for long-term care facilities.  This brings the total Illinois doses to 869,625.  IDPH is currently reporting a total of 353,791 vaccines administered, including 41,075 for long-term care facilities.  The 7-day rolling average of vaccines administered daily is 24,200 doses.

“Throughout the pandemic we have used data to guide our decisions and actions and we will continue to do so for vaccine administration,” said IDPH Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike.  “Illinois is a very diverse state, geographically and in the make-up 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 datasets are broken down by county.
