|A summary of statistics offering the public an up-to-date snapshot of the Island’s vaccination programme has gone live online at: https://covid19.gov.im/vacstats |
Information on the dashboard currently spans eight areas headed by an anonymised total number of people vaccinated in phase 1. This is broken down by the brand of vaccine used, first and second doses, age groups and the location and date jabs were given.
The page also shows the number of jabs booked over the following seven days, and maps vaccinations to the priority groups set out by the UK Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).
The dashboard’s interactive function gives further detail behind the headline figures, allowing users to filter summary data by clicking on relevant themes. For example, to show the numbers of Pfizer/BioNTech vaccinations only, the user would click on the Pfizer/BioNTech brand, or to show vaccinations given to care home residents, choose the Care Homes option under Location and the age band of interest.
Users can also filter by the JCVI cohorts using the drop-down menu at the top. Health and Social Care Minister David Ashford told B365: ‘I’m delighted are able to share some of the real-time data that is being used in our programme providing full transparency about the pace of vaccination delivery.’
He added: ‘A project like this requires a continual flow of accurate data. We use this to ensure that we are delivering against the JCVI priority groups, taking into account both first and second doses. Our data reporting requirements will change over time as the rollout develops, and we will adapt the dashboard accordingly.’
The vaccination statistics dashboard is updated at 90 minute intervals during the working day, from 8am until 6.30pm. The current statistics are a click away – check them out here.
