SMC Dashboard has some vaccine data
#1
The San Mateo county health dept is reporting on vaccine data at their web site.

https://www.smchealth.org/data-dashboard...tions-data


The figures reported are initially confusing. A few minutes with the calculator and it makes more sense. I would have chosen different wording

"Vaccine Doses Administered by Date", graph by date and line with cumulative info = Total Doses (58720)
"Total Vaccine Doses Administered" (58,750) , close enough to the above
"Total Individuals Vaccinated" (48,826) = number who have received at least one dose
"% Vaccinated"  = percentage of population that got one dose = 6.3%
The percentage who got both doses is 1.3% and not directly shown (population of the county is 780,273)
"% Completed Vaccination Series" = of those individuals that got 1 or 2 doses, what percent got 2

The next page is initially disturbing. The first page lists vaccinations by Walgreens and CVS (those that do long term care facilities). I didn't read the fine print that said the VA, Walgreens and CVS don'e necessarily report to the county. I just assumed they were counted even though M_T said they weren't in SCC. This page,

makes one think that age group 35-44 got the most vaccinations. I bet that the elderly are underrepresented due to the VA, Walgeens, and CVS numbers. Much of the remainder are younger health care workers and the like.

Thanks for pointing out the SMC site.  Note that you can adjust the date range of the 1st table in the demographic data.  If you push the start date to a week ago (1/18), the 75+ are the largest group.  But before that, not so.

Basically 6% of the total population, or (for California) nearly 10% of the vaccine-eligible population, were given the vaccine first in phase 1-A as healthcare workers.

Although phase 1-A included LTCF residents and staff, that number was estimated to be about 300K (not sure if 300K = residents or residents+staff) out of 2.5-3 Million in Phase 1-A.

For those that don't study the 1st page above, the referenced fine print says (underline added to show differences), "Vaccinations administered as part of federal health care organizations or programs such as the Veterans Administration (VA) and the Pharmacy Partnership for Long-term Care Program (through CVS and Walgreens) report to federal immunization systems, may not report into CAIR2, and may not be included in vaccination numbers on the dashboard."

On the 2nd page above, the fine print says  "Vaccinations administered as part of federal health care organizations or programs such as the Veterans Administration (VA) and the Pharmacy Partnership for Long-term Care Program (through CVS and Walgreens) report to federal immunization systems, do not report into CAIR2, and not currently included in vaccination numbers on the dashboard."

However, in the first page, the numbers indicate 4,247 vaccinations by CVS and 1,809 by Walgreens.

Right. So we don't have the information to say that "SMC is doing an awesome job" or "SMC is vaccinating those that gave me donations." I don't think that I can blame anyone, but transparency can be hard to achieve.
