During Acting Health Secretary Alison Beam's media briefing Thursday, her colleague in the Health Department, Executive Deputy Secretary Keara Klinepeter, outlined changes to the state's online Covid-19 data reporting.
The state has transferred its vaccine provider map to the Google Maps platform, she said. The change will improve functionality and make the map easier to navigate accessible to more users, she said.
Although the map shows vaccine allocations to providers, "'Doses' does not equal appointments," Klinepeter said, so individuals should still refer to providers themselves for the most up-to-date information on appointment availability and scheduling.
Eventually, the state plans to enhance the map with appointment information and foreign language support, she said.
Additionally, the state is putting more vaccine data online, she said, including full listings of first-dose allocations; second-dose allocations; direct federal allocations of vaccine to retail pharmacies; and scheduled vaccination sessions at long-term care facilities.
