BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore officials on Friday announced the launch of a new COVID-19 vaccine dashboard that shows detailed data about how many vaccines have been administered and who has gotten them.

According to the dashboard, 43,829 first doses and 15,046 second doses of the vaccine have been administered citywide. Roughly 7.4% of the city’s population has gotten a first dose.
Still, Mayor Brandon Scott said he’s unhappy with the vaccination process, highlighting disparities in who is getting vaccinated.
The dashboard shows just 3.6% of Black residents have gotten a vaccine, compared with just under 12% of white residents, nearly 18% of Asian residents and 19% of residents with native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander heritage. Just under 9% of women in the city have been vaccinated compared to just 5.7% of men.READ MORE: 'An Incredible Therapy' | Hagerstown Doctor Says Monoclonal Antibody Treatment Provides Fast Recoveries For Some COVID Patients
That isn’t the fault of the on-the-ground healthcare workers, Scott said, calling on the state to partner with the city to address vaccination inequities.
The announcement came on the same day two mass vaccination sites — one at the Baltimore Convention Center and one at Six Flags America in Prince George’s County — opened.
While COVID-19 case rates are improving in the city, Scott urged people to stay home and not partake in large events for the Super Bowl.
