Vaccination data added to COVID-19 dashboard

Residents now have a way to monitor the number of COVID-19 vaccinations administered in Hawaii, the Department of Health announced Thursday.

The new feature displays statewide and county-by-county totals for the number of vaccinations administered. The figures will be updated at noon on Wednesdays with data up through 11:59 p.m. the Saturday prior. The state said the 3.5-day lag in reporting allows for data from dozens of sources to be checked for accuracy.

The most recent data, posted Wednesday, indicated 25,470 vaccinations had been administered through 11:59 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 2. Hawaii County reported having inoculated 2,526.

“Hawaii is doing really well with vaccinations,” said Dr. Elizabeth Char, DOH director. “We’ve only had vaccine available to us for three weeks. The Christmas holiday and the New Year’s holiday curtailed our efforts just a bit, but we are ready to ramp up vaccinations going forward. Our goal is to get vaccine to as many people as possible in a safe, secure and orderly manner.”

The DOH said it is working with major hospitals throughout the state and other partners to coordinate vaccination hubs and mobile vaccination services. Online or other vaccination appointment services are expected to be available in about a week.
