    Blog Post A User’s Guide to U.S. Vaccine Breakthrough Rates With the United States over a year into its vaccination campaign, all eyes right now are on Covid-19 rates broken out by vaccination status—measures of the number of Covid-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths per 100,000 vaccinated or unvaccinated individuals. Shared by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as many state, […] Dave Luo, Jacqueline Houtman, Jessica Malaty Rivera, Jonathan Gilmour, Kaitlyn Johnson, Kara Schechtman, Leo Wolansky, Lindsey Shultz, Rebecca Glassman

    Blueprint Variants, Sublineages, and Recombinants: The Constantly Changing Genome of SARS-CoV-2 During the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, numerous variants of SARS-CoV-2 have emerged. Some have died out, and some have surged globally. They are all SARS-CoV-2, but they differ in important ways. Think of them as the boughs of the SARS-CoV-2 family tree, each of which has branched off into many smaller limbs. The smaller […] Dave Luo, Dr. Rick Bright, Jacqueline Houtman, Jessica Malaty Rivera, Jonathan Gilmour, Lindsey Shultz, Samuel Scarpino

    Field Note Vaccine Inequity Increases the Risk of New SARS-CoV-2 Variants Emerging Robust genomic surveillance, along with transparency, communication, and global collaboration, is needed to detect and control emerging variants. To control the Covid-19 pandemic, the World Health Organization (WHO) called on member states to meet a goal of vaccinating 40% of their population by the end of 2021. As of mid December 2021, over 8.6 billion […] Dave Luo, Dr. Rick Bright, Emily Bass, Jacqueline Houtman, Jessica Malaty Rivera, Jonathan Gilmour, Lindsey Shultz

    Field Note Tracking State Reporting of Covid-19 Vaccine Breakthrough Infections Today, we are releasing a reporting scorecard that evaluates U.S. state data reporting for Covid-19 vaccine breakthrough infections (BI) against best practices we have identified. We assign states letter grades based on their alignment with these best practices for reporting BI data and will update the grades monthly to monitor progress. The scorecard with states’ […] Dave Luo, Jennifer Clyde, Jessica Malaty Rivera, Jonathan Gilmour, Kaitlyn Johnson, Kara Schechtman, Leo Wolansky, Lindsey Shultz, Michal Mart, Rebecca Glassman
