# Vaccination Progress in the US and World

## What is the COVID-19/Coronavirus?

• According to the CDC, “coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.”
• Continuing, “the best way to prevent and slow down transmission is to be well informed about the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads. Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands or using an alcohol based rub frequently and not touching your face.”
• Stay informed about COVID-19. Practice social distancing and healthy practices (washing hands). Educate your friends and family on the dangers of COVID-19.
• Yes, there’s currently a vaccine out, but the vaccine will take quite a while to distribute to everyone. Thus, I encourage everyone reading to be patient about COVID so we can unite together and minimize the catastrophic damage the coronavirus has inflicted.

## So what role do vaccines play?

• How well it works: 95% efficacy in preventing COVID-19 in those without prior infection. In clinical trials, the vaccine was 100% effective at preventing severe disease.
• In early May, the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was found to be more than 95% effective against severe disease or death from the Alpha variant (first detected in the United Kingdom) and the Beta variant (first identified in South Africa) in two studies based on real-world use of the vaccine. As far as the Delta variant (first seen in India), two studies reported by Public Health England that have not yet been peer reviewed showed that full vaccination (after two doses) is 88% effective against symptomatic disease and 96% effective against hospitalization.

# United States Vaccination Progress

### Figure 1: Total Vaccinations Given in the United States

Visualization of raw numbers for vaccinations given in the United States. Also includes data on total distributed vaccines and unused vaccines (calculated as the difference between total distributed and total vaccinations given).

### Figure 2: Total People Vaccinated in the United States

Visualization of the total number of people vaccinated in the United States. Also includes data on people fully vaccinated and people who only have one dose of a vaccine (calculated as people vaccinated minus people fully vaccinated).

### Figure 3: Percentage of People Vaccinated by State

Visualization of the percentage of people vaccinated by state. Also includes data on the percentage of people fully vaccinated and the percentage of people with only one dose by state (calculated as the percentage of people vaccinated minus the percentage of people fully vaccinated).

### Figure 4. Daily Vaccinations in the United States

Visualization of the rate vaccines are being given in the United States at this time.

### Fig 5. Days Left Until Everyone is Fully Vaccinated in the United States

Visualization of how many days are left until everyone is fully vaccinated. Also includes data on how many total vaccinations are needed and the population of the state.

### Figure 6. Progress by State

Same visualizations as above except you can look at the progress/trend each state has been making. Default is to look 30 days back. Change days_prev in the state_visualization function to look a different number of days back.
