EL PASO COUNTY — El Paso County Public Health has launched a vaccine dashboard to track local vaccination efforts.
The department said the data found on the dashboard will include information about the current phase and priority groups, how many doses have been administered, how many immunization series have been completed, and the daily average of doses administered.
The dashboard will be updated once each day in the evenings in alignment with updates to the COVID-19 dashboard.
“One of our top priorities in collaboration with our partners is to continue enhancing data transparency to help inform people in El Paso County communities,” said Susan Wheelan, El Paso County Public Health Director. “Locally we provide some of the most comprehensive data in Colorado, utilizing innovative and interactive platforms to visualize the County’s progress and response efforts. El Paso County vaccine distribution is an added component on our data dashboard. Throughout the region, there are monumental efforts happening to strengthen coordination and align strategy, policy, and resources to connect people with the COVID-19 vaccine as quickly as possible.”
El Paso County is currently focused on vaccinating priority populations in Phase 1 in accordance with the state’s phased distribution plan. At this point in time, the biggest barrier is the limited supply of vaccine, the county said.
Besides the county, multiple healthcare providers are offering the vaccine to those in Phase 1 and those over 70. Those healthcare providers are UCHealth, Centura, Kaiser Permanente, Matthews-Vu Medical Group, Peak Vista Community Health Centers, and Optum and Mountain View Medical Group.

The County said that until the vaccine is widely available, it is important that everyone, including those who have received the vaccine, continue to follow prevention measures to slow the spread of the virus. This means wear a mask, practice social distancing, wash your hands frequently, and stay home when you are sick.
