UAB and the PathCheck Foundation have launched a COVID-19 vaccination dashboard where readers can access vaccination data locally and internationally.
The dashboard tracks quantities of vaccines administered on a state and country level and shows a breakdown of numbers of a specific brand of vaccine administered, inoculated population percentages and data broken down into first- and second- dose categories, according to a statement released by the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
The dashboard uses anonymous data collected from more than 60 governmental agencies and other publicly available data sources.
“As we shift from focusing on the spread of COVID-19 to balancing the return of our lives to normal, vaccinations are one of the key components. The vaccination dashboard provides information to everyone, regardless of who you are or where you live,” said Sue Feldman, Ph.D., professor and director of graduate programs in health informatics in UAB’s School of Health Professions.
UAB also worked with PathCheck, founded at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, on the foundation’s GuideSafe coronavirus exposure notification app.
