Residents can track local trends in cases, hospitalizations and vaccinations.
To keep residents informed about the latest developments in the COVID-19 pandemic, Pinellas County has launched an updated data dashboard to track local cases, case positivity, hospitalizations and vaccination rates.
The updated dashboard is available online at: covid19.pinellascounty.org/dashboard.
The new tool offers a detailed look at key metrics in the pandemic using the latest available data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and the Florida Department of Health.
The latest data shows most hospitals still experiencing a high level of COVID patients and occupied ICU beds, though cases, hospitalizations and percent positivity have started to decline overall.
Vaccination rates have also been trending higher in recent weeks with around 545,000 now fully vaccinated and more than 617,000 having received one dose.
- Number of weekly cases: 4,340 (Sept. 3-9)
- Percentage of positive tests: 14.7% (Sept. 3-9)
- Percentage of eligible people fully vaccinated: 62.4% (70.6% one dose)
- Daily COVID patients in hospitals: 581 (7-day average)
- Percent of adult ICU beds occupied: 83% (37% used by COVID patients)
Vaccine boosters available for immunocompromised
The CDC currently recommends a third dose of the Pfizer or Moderna (mRNA) vaccines for those who are immunocompromised, which is available for free at retail pharmacies, even for those vaccinated at a County-run site. Eligible residents should take their vaccine card with them to their third dose appointment.
The CDC is evaluating the need for booster shots for the general public and is expected to have a recommendation this fall. Learn more.
