If you’re new to the data snapshot, we publish a weekly summary of the status for each of our metrics (you can find past issues on our data and metrics page). The data below are from May 10 to May 23.
During this period, there was an average of 23 cases per day, which is the lowest average we’ve had in nearly a year.
Cases were stable during this 14-day period. Our average of 23 cases per day is the lowest average we’ve had in nearly a year, before variants were widespread and before we had access to vaccination. We still have a low percent positivity of 1.2%. Over the past four weeks, cases have decreased among ages 5-7 and 18-69 and remained stable among all other age groups. There was only an average of 1 case per day among ages 70+ during this 14-day period.
Nearly two in three Dane County residents have at least one dose of vaccine.
Among all people in Dane County, 65.8% have received at least one dose of vaccine. 57% of Dane County residents have completed the vaccine series. Among the population eligible for vaccination in Dane County (people ages 12+), 76% have received at least one dose of vaccine and 65.8% have completed the vaccine series.
We are seeing lower vaccination rates in outlying municipalities.
Page 3 of the Snapshot illustrates vaccination rates by municipality and by census tract. Our mobile vaccination team works with partners in these communities to assess ways we and other vaccinators can reach Dane County residents and offer vaccination and address people’s questions and concerns.
