SOUTH JERSEY — Over the past 10 months, New Jersey’s COVID-19 dashboard has displayed the state’s total positive tests, coronavirus-related deaths, and other statistics concerning the coronavirus pandemic. The dashboard added a new, more optimistic metric on Monday.
Governor Phil Murphy announced on Twitter that the state’s COVID-19 dashboard will display the total number of vaccine doses administered from now until the pandemic’s conclusion.
At the time of publication — approximately 12:30 p.m. on January 12 — the state reported 233,555 total doses of the COVID-19 vaccine administered throughout the state. It also reported that 21,289 people have received the second dose of the vaccine, meaning they are fully vaccinated.
The dashboard also provides a number of different underlying statistics pertinent to the vaccine. So far, 64% of those who have been vaccinated are female, and 54% of all the vaccines administered have been the Moderna model. Additionally, the dashboard reports doses administered by race and by county.
So far, more than 7,500 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Gloucester County. Cumberland County has reported 3,185 doses, and Camden and Salem counties reported 12,932 and 1,101 doses, respectively, as of 12:30 p.m. on January 12.
New Jersey crossed the 200,000 vaccine milestone on Sunday. You can check out the COVID-19 vaccine information center here.
