    According to the NY Times, we are slightly behind the national average in doses used vs. doses received (75% vs. 79%) and population fully vaccinated (3.5% vs 4.9%), but still fairly solid. There are big differences across the state, however, with Champaign County already over 20% with the first shot, while the state average is 12%.

    -thechampaignlife-
    Those include the federal PPP which is falling way short of its goals and not under state control.
    If you remove those shots, Illinois at ~94% used.

    Still just ok on everything else, but the issues we saw in January have been minimized and the state is adding capacity every week.

    This will be the first week where we didn’t improve on the previous week and it was because of a weather event, not a supply chain or delivery issue.

    I thought the highest single day was 95,000, which occurred last week.

    Dee Lay,

    That’s not accurate. You derive your state dose rate by eliminating all the federal PPP doses provided, but not eliminating the PPP doses administered.

    Although the federal PPP program hasn’t been efficient, it has delivered far more than 50% of it’s shots, leaving the state program well below 85% in terms of delivery. And the state to state comparisons are still relevant, since 48 other states also suffer from the inefficiencies of that program. Illinois is behind the national average, no matter how you divvy up the numbers.

    From the first dose given in mid-December it wasn’t until Jan 31 until the state reached a million jabs.

    Now the state has cleared a million jabs in 18 days.

    You can’t fix the past, but the trend of shots given per day is heading in the right direction.

    And because this is largely a supply issue, once the feds gets Illinois the vials the rollout will only grow.

    I be curious to see how long it takes the next million shots to be rolled out? 12 days??
