PHILADELPHIA – The Philadelphia Department of Public Health today reported an additional 326,760 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Philadelphia since last reported on Monday, January 24. The reason for the large increase is because today’s update includes administrations added from the state’s database. This brings the total number of fully vaccinated Philadelphians to at least 975,653, and the number of Philadelphians with at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine to at least 1,189,177. Currently, 78.6 percent of Philadelphia adults are fully vaccinated, and over 95 percent* of Philadelphia adults have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
All residents ages five and older are eligible to be vaccinated in Philadelphia. 45.2 percent of 5-to-11-year-olds in Philadelphia have received at least one vaccine dose. Among eligible Philadelphians ages 12 and older, 72.8 percent are fully vaccinated, and 88.7 percent have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
The Department of Health reports 904 patients with COVID-19 are currently being treated in Philadelphia hospitals, with a total of 103 on ventilators.
In the last two weeks, 10.1 percent of COVID-19 tests in Philadelphia have come back positive. Thus far during the pandemic, 265,042 Philadelphians have been diagnosed with COVID-19, and 4,465 have succumbed to the virus. Philadelphia is averaging 921 new cases of COVID-19 per day over the last two weeks.
CDC COVID-19 Testing Site at Cibotti Recreation Center Extended: The federal COVID-19 testing site in Southwest Philadelphia, at Cibotti Recreation Center, was originally scheduled to close this week. In order to continue to support this community, the Health Department requested that the site be extended; the CDC agreed to extend this site by three weeks. The site will now operate until Thursday, February 17. The testing site can be found at 2500 S. 77th Street. It is open for walk-up testing, though people can set appointments online at doineedacovid19test.com. This site can test more than 500 people per day and has had excess capacity for a few weeks.
Health Department Updates COVID-19 Vaccine Dashboard to Include Vaccine Administration Data from Pennsylvania Counties: After months of effort and coordination with the Pennsylvania Department of Health, the City’s dashboard now includes vaccine administration data on every Philadelphia resident that received a dose of COVID-19 vaccine anywhere in the state. Going forward, the Health Department will receive updated vaccine administration data from the state every two weeks. The addition of the state data accounts for a few updates in this week’s Health Department data, including a rise in children’s vaccinations and the administration of boosters. Vaccine administration data is updated every weekday on the City’s website.
*Note: All vaccine administration percentages will be capped at 95 percent to account for U.S. Census estimates.
