Idaho providing race, ethnicity data on vaccine data dashboard
Race and ethnicity data is now available starting on the COVID-19 Vaccine Data Dashboard, which is available at coronavirus.idaho.gov.
The data will be updated by 5 p.m. daily, except for Sundays and holidays.
"Idaho and DHW (Idaho Department of Health and Welfare) are committed to transparency, but we also want to make sure the data we can provide has integrity," said IDHW Director Dave Jeppesen. "Race and ethnicity are not mandatory for patients to report, but if the patient provides this data, it is required to be reported by enrolled COVID-19 vaccine providers. It is new for the Idaho Immunization Program to capture and report this data. We want to thank everyone for their patience as we worked through capturing and reporting this important information."
