IDHW expects 2-5 percent increase in weekly COVID-19 vaccine doses

Idaho Department of Health and Welfare learned Friday that Idaho will not see a large increase in COVID-19 vaccine doses from the previously announced release of second doses.

However, they have been notified by the federal government that Idaho will see a 2-5 percent increase in the number of doses they will receive each week, which amounts to about 950 extra doses each week. At this time, Idaho is anticipating receiving 20,950 doses each week for the foreseeable future.

Along with other states, Idaho is requesting more accurate, timely, and forward-looking estimates of doses Idaho will receive from the federal government. IDHW has committed to being transparent as they quickly work to support enrolled provider organizations as they vaccinate as many people as possible during this rapidly evolving situation.
