Data tracks how doses are received, administered

Santa Clara County launched a new online dashboard on Friday that tracks the number of COVID-19 vaccine doses received and administered by the county's health care sector.

The dashboard will be revised and expanded daily as the county receives more data from providers, according to a Friday press release from the Public Health Department.

Some data is still missing, either due to failure to report or because some providers receive their vaccine supplies directly from the federal government and therefore are not subject to the reporting requirement, according the press release.

Health care systems throughout the county continue to expand capacity and ensure that eligible individuals receive vaccines expeditiously. New vaccine shipments are arriving each week and will be noted in the dashboard upon their receipt.

The dashboard was created to better inform the public of how the COVID-19 vaccines are being distributed throughout the community.

“Some data is still missing”...

Data is plural. Some data *are* still missing.

Very disappointed in PAMF(Sutter). Our family has been been going to PAMF for years, but will seriously consider a change after the way they have handled COVID. Very difficult to get a test through them and now they don't even report their information to the County. I hope the County will reconsider making people get their vaccine through their health care provider because at this point I have no confidence in PAMF's ability to distribute the vaccine.

I am glad that the county set this up. Numbers look good so far. I hope Santa Clara County can continue to expedite shots-in-arms as they get vaccine deliveries. The state should prioritize deliveries to those counties that are using them.

I agree with Palo Verde parents’
comments. I have been a longtime patient of Sutter/PAMF. Everyone is anxious to get the vaccine & they should have anticipated this, & hired more temp staff. On Friday (1/15) their website crashed.

The article says there have been 32,000 shots administered in the County but the County Dashboard linked in the article shows over 100,000 first shots administered as of Jan 17 and doesn't yet have data from Sutter or the VA so well over 1000,000 shot have been administered in the County and it's still ramping up the number of vaccines given each day. Totally amazing. Why doesn't the news report this very positive and incredible information? From zero to over 100,000 in about a month!!
