Race and ethnicity data will be available starting today on the COVID-19 Vaccine Data Dashboard, which is available at coronavirus.idaho.gov. The data will be updated by 5 p.m. daily, except for Sundays and holidays.
“Idaho and DHW are committed to transparency, but we also want to make sure the data we can provide has integrity,” said Department of Health and Welfare Director Dave Jeppesen. “Race and ethnicity are not mandatory for patients to report, but if the patient provides this data, it is required to be reported by enrolled COVID-19 vaccine providers. It is new for the Idaho Immunization Program to capture and report this data. We want to thank everyone for their patience as we worked through capturing and reporting this important information.”
The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare is dedicated to strengthening the health, safety, and independence of Idahoans. Learn more at healthandwelfare.idaho.gov.
