New findings from the researchers behind the Georgia COVID-19 Vaccine Dashboard say that although Covid-19 vaccinations are gradually increasing nationwide, disparities exist among vaccination rates across race and geographic areas among Georgia’s counties.

The dashboard was developed by a team from the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE), including Pinar Keskinocak, William W. George Chair and professor, and Dima Nazzal, Director of Professional Practice. They worked alongside Ph.D. students Akane Fujimoto and Tyler Perini in collaboration with the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH).

“There is a lot variability in different regions of the state, so we wanted to take a closer look from an equity perspective,” said Keskinocak in the article.

As of June 3, the dashboard indicated that vaccination rates among white residents are higher than those of Black residents in all large metro counties as well as around 70% of all Georgia counties. In addition, vaccination coverage among adults was lower among those living in counties with lower socioeconomic status and with higher percentages of households with children, single parents, and persons with disabilities.
