COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution

US Vaccine Data

  • The overall US COVID-19 vaccine daily data tracker provided by CDC does not break down distribution data by venue/place of administration. The places of administration include “jurisdictional partner clinics, retail pharmacies, long-term care facilities, Federal Emergency Management Agency and Health Resources and Services Administration partner sites, and federal entity facilities”.
  • After the vaccines have been delivered by the federal government to states, other jurisdictions, and other federal and commercial partners, they then determine how and where the vaccines are distributed.
  • State and local health departments have the best information about when, where, and how” vaccines are administered. However, most states only provide vaccine distribution data by county of residence and demographic groups.
  • According to the California State Government, most Californian residents get their vaccination at hospitals, community vaccination sites, doctor’s offices, clinics, and pharmacies.
