Curious about how the COVID-19 vaccine has impacted the world around you? This SAS Viya powered data visualization shows information related to the COVID-19 vaccination efforts in the United States. Here's what you can learn from this dashboard.

Percentage of vaccinated Americans

In August 2021, the CDC reported that over 50% of Americans were fully vaccinated, and nearly 60% had received at least one dose. The data SAS collected for this visualization reflects that of health agencies such as the CDC.

How vaccinations relate to rising/falling cases

As the charts show, when mass vaccinations began, a steady rise in vaccinations generally led to a decreased number of new COVID-19 cases. However, with the rise of new variants and vaccination rates plateauing, daily cases are spiking, coming close to evening the number of new vaccinations, or surpassing it.

Curious to see how a specific date and number of fully vaccinated Americans correlates to the number of daily new cases? Plot a few points on the charts and let your curiosity roam.

Shipped, used dosage and completed vaccinations among providers

On December 13th, 2020, Sandra Lindsay, a nurse in New York, became the first American to receive a vaccine dose outside of a clinical trial. That provider? Pfizer/BioNTech. To date, the company has vaccinated more Americans than rival providers Moderna and Johnson&Johnson.

What about the total number of vaccines shipped between the providers, compared to how many have been used? This dashboard sorts that all out for you, color-coded, too.

Vaccine rates among your state

Every state is different and this COVID-19 dashboard surely reflects that. Want to know how your state is doing in the effort to reach herd immunity? Check out this feature that shows percentages of vaccinated people in a particular state.

What about how your state has done on vaccinations over a monthly period? You can check that out as well. Vaccination rates, particularly in North Carolina have increased each month from March 2021 to August 2021. Since April 19th, 2021 all adults are eligible for vaccination. In June 2021, children ages 12 to 17 became eligible.

Data in this dashboard derives from the WHO, CDC, ECDC, NHC, and DXY. Compiled by JHU CSSE and updated daily.
