Statistics/Tracking

When this website was created, it heavily relied on the COVID Tracking Project for data. The COVID Tracking Project was a volunteer-based effort to aggregate and publish Covid-19 data neatly, since each state had their own system of reporting cases early on in the pandemic. It is not updated anymore, but many more resources for statistics/data have emerged. Some great ones are mentioned below.

(NYT: New York Times, MC: Mayo Clinic, JHU: Johns Hopkins University.) All 3 of these resources are interactive, letting you change the state/region to see refined or specific case trends.

Georgia residents

Mayo Clinic also has a COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker that lets people see how their state is coming along with vaccinations. So far, Georgia is 44% fully vaccinated (as of 9-21-21).

Boosters (3rd shot) for some people who got Pfizer

Officially, it is recommended that people 65+ and people with underlying medical conditions get a third shot of the Pfizer vaccine if it has been 6 months since their first two shots.

Unofficially, the same has been recommended for workers on the front line. This has caused some confusion, even among the experts. The best thing to do if you are unsure is call your doctor and ask them if you need a third shot. See the CDC’s page on this topic.
