COVID-19 Vaccine doses - media analysis

 

 

Prison systems have begun vaccine distribution for incarcerated people. A table of states that publicly report real-time vaccination data is available on our System Report page. For states that are not reporting public numbers, we have estimated the following counts of incarcerated people and staff that have been vaccinated from media reports. We update this table on a daily basis.
