Mapping COVID-19 Response in Rural Communities.

  A new interactive mapping tool provides rural-specific information on COVID-19 vaccination rates, including newly released data on bivalent boosters, COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, and other health and sociodemographic information at the community level.  The tool was created by the NORC Walsh Center for Rural Health Analysis – with support and data provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – to help decision-making about vaccination efforts and resources.  All data can be downloaded for free; every county also has an individual fact sheet comparing all county-level data to the rest of their state and the nation.
