On Jan. 8, the City of Williamsburg launched a new dashboard to track COVID-19 vaccine distribution in the locality.

According to a news release from the City of Williamsburg, the dashboard is an extension of an online hub launched in March that tracked global, national, state, and local information and resources. The same dashboard can be viewed by clicking here.

“The City understands that now more than ever, information that is current and reliable is
paramount,” City Manager Andrew O. Trivette said in a prepared statement. “Being aware of the state vaccination process is how you can be informed.”

“The newly revamped dashboard is a location where you can find much of the information you need and links to other sources for the information you want,” he added.

The vaccination dashboard includes a “vaccine tracker for deployment” in the Peninsula Health District, including James City County and York County with data aggregated from the Virginia Department of Health, according to the news release.

The dashboard also includes weekly updates with information specific to city residents.

“The Jan. 8 update included a video with Larry Snyder, Williamsburg Fire Department’s deputy chief, who explained what is known about the deployment process and the vaccination status of the city’s EMTs and paramedics,” according the news release.

Last week, the city reported the fire department’s 41 employees and four volunteers received the vaccine with a second dose expected in a month.

City spokeswoman Nicole Trifone noted Tuesday the vaccine data on the dashboard is based on where people live, not where they received the vaccine or where they work.

As of Tuesday, the dashboard shows four vaccine doses have been administered in the City of Williamsburg.
