COVID-19 vaccination data

The Telegraph Herald is recapping changes in local COVID-19 testing and vaccination. Thursday’s developments included:

  • Wednesday of this week was supposed to be the start of the Iowa Department of Public Health only providing weekly updates — on Wednesdays — of its COVID-19 data website, but Dubuque County’s county case total changed markedly between 5 p.m. Wednesday and 5 p.m. Thursday. A total of 18 more residents were confirmed to have COVID-19 during that time, according to the state data.
  • If accurate, that would be Dubuque County’s highest single-day total of new cases since the 24-hour period that ended at 5 p.m. on April 17.
  • However, state data shows only an increase of 23 cases statewide during the 24-hour period that ended at 5 pm. Thursday, so it’s unclear if Dubuque County’s total is accurate. Efforts to reach IDPH officials on Thursday night were unsuccessful. As of 5 p.m. Thursday, Iowa’s case total stood at 374,358. The state’s related death toll remained at 6,149.
  • During the 24-hour period that ended at 5 p.m. Thursday, state data shows three more cases in Clayton County, two fewer cases in Delaware County, two more cases in Jackson County and four fewer cases in Jones County.
  • In Wisconsin, there were three more cases in Grant County, one more in Crawford County and one less in Lafayette County. Iowa County was unchanged, as was Jo Daviess County, Ill.
  • As of Thursday, 149,291 residents of the TH’s coverage area were fully vaccinated, which is 57.7% of the area’s population of those 12 and older.
  • The next Dubuque County walk-in vaccination clinic will be held from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. today at Visiting Nurse Association, 660 Iowa St., in Dubuque. See the full list of vaccination sites at bit.ly/3uEtQNO.
  • Last week, Iowa health officials announced that county hospitalization figures would be updated once per week on Thursdays. However, as of 5 p.m. Thursday, hospitalization figures had not been updated.
  • As of Thursday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that 1,529,865 Iowans had been fully vaccinated, or 57.2% of the state’s residents who are at least 12 years old.
  • The Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported 204 additional confirmed cases of COVID-19, raising the total to 613,484. The state’s death toll rose by four to 7,335.
  • As of Thursday, 2,936,243 Wisconsin residents had been fully vaccinated, which represents 58.7% of the state’s residents who are at least 12 years old.
  • Illinois reported 1,394,852 COVID-19 cases as of Thursday, an increase of 617 cases from Wednesday. The state’s death toll rose by 11 to 23,289.
  • As of Thursday, 5,917,735 Illinois residents have been fully vaccinated, which is 54.6% of the state’s residents who are at least 12 years old.
