DOH to Release Preliminary COVID-19 Vaccination Amounts

To more accurately convey the number of COVID-19 vaccinations administered in Hawai’i, DOH is now releasing a preliminary number in addition to the vetted and verified number issued every Wednesday. This new preliminary number will be posted daily, Monday through Friday, by 8 a.m. on the DOH Disease Outbreak Control Division (DOCD) website. The preliminary number will also be available by connecting with the DOH via Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

DOCD will continue to publish the vetted and verified number of vaccinations administered every Wednesday at 12 p.m. This vetted and verified number will include vaccinations administered through the previous Sunday at 11:59 p.m. The two-and-a-half-day lag in reporting allows DOH to “clean and scrub” the data to ensure it is accurate. This vetted and verified number currently stands at 70,095.

The preliminary number released by DOH today is 94,003. This reflects the preliminary count through Thursday, January 21, 2021. Due to ongoing delays in reporting from vaccination sites, the actual number of vaccinations administered is likely higher than 94,003. To access the DOCD website:
