Slowing and then renewed interest in getting vaccinated

When countries gained access to vaccines, there was an initial burst of vaccinations, but the rate leveled off in most places. Then a variant arrives, and an incentive or another push for vaccinations increases the rate. Reuters looks at the rate shift in different countries, in the context of trying to reach 70 percent vaccinated. The set of difference charts took me a minute to digest, but then seems straightforward...

Hospitalization rates for the unvaccinated

Overall, Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations are down in the United States, but much of that is from vaccinations. When you look at only those who are not vaccinated, the rates are still high in many areas of the country. Dan Keating and Leslie Shapiro for The Washington Post show the differences.

Four types of people who prevent full vaccination

The United States vaccination rate was rolling for a while there, but it has slowed down.

This...

Voting and vaccination rate

Danielle Ivory, Lauren Leatherby and Robert Gebeloff for The New York looked at voting from the 2020 election and vaccination rates at the state and county levels.

GDP and vaccination rates

For The New York Times, Keith Collins and Josh Holder look at the relationship between country wealth and vaccination rates. Wealthier countries made deals with drug makers earlier, which means poorer countries are not able to secure as many vaccines. Tags: coronavirus, New York Times, vaccination

Improving vaccine distribution in all states

Lauren Leatherby and Amy Schoenfeld Walker reporting for The New York Times: “Every state is improving,” said Claire Hannan, the executive director of the Association of Immunization Managers. “We still don’t have enough to vaccinate everyone over 75, so it doesn’t necessarily feel different for people who are trying to find the vaccine, but we are in a much better place now.” Good. Find the most current CDC vaccination data...

How quickly the U.S. is vaccinating vs. how long it’ll take to get back to “normal”

Vaccines provide light at the end of the tunnel, but when we finally get to the end depends on the speed at which we vaccinate. The Washington Post considers Joe Biden’s pledge for 100 million shots in his first 100 days in the context of herd immunity and calendar days. I appreciate the time spent explaining the intersection of these two lines. Tags: coronavirus, Joe Biden, vaccination, Washington Post

Impact of vaccines throughout history

Not that anyone who does not vaccinate their kids cares, but Tynan DeBold and Dov Friedman for the Wall Street Journal show the change in number of cases for various diseases after a vaccination is introduced. Each row represents a state, and each column represents a year. So each cell represents the number of cases per 10,000 people, in a state for a given year. The above shows the change...

Vaccination rates for every kindergarten in California

The New York Times mapped the vaccination rate for every kindergarten in California. Bubbles are sized by enrollment and colored by rate, where red represents under 60 percent and blue represents at or above the rate recommended by the CDC for herd immunity. Glad the Times was able to get this data together. Important. Tags: New York Times, vaccination
