Vaccine calculator improved

On Monday, Gov. Justice was joined by Coronavirus Czar Dr. Clay Marsh, who announced that the state’s free, online COVID-19 Vaccine Due Date Calculator has added new functionality to better help West Virginians understand when it’s their time to get vaccinated.

The Calculator, which remains the first of its kind in the U.S., has been updated to share not only the date that the user becomes due for a COVID-19 shot, but also what type of COVID-19 vaccine they are recommended to receive.

Additionally, users who scroll down on the final page will now find a “Medical Info” button for healthcare providers. The Medical Info page includes information to assist medical providers in their clinical recommendations for vaccination patients, as well as links to various helpful resources for clinical considerations and vaccine administration and more.

During Monday’s briefing, Marsh spotlighted the updates and provided a helpful reminder to West Virginians on how to use the Calculator with a live demonstration of the tool.

The Calculator is run completely on the user’s browser. Anything the user enters is not visible to or stored by anyone managing the tool. No names, addresses, or credit card information are ever requested for calculations, and the tool is always free for everyone.

More than 17,000 West Virginians have used the vaccine calculator in just the past three days.

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) reports as of May 18, 2022, there are currently 1,795 active COVID-19 cases statewide. There have been two deaths reported since the last report, with a total of 6,905 deaths attributed to COVID-19.

DHHR has confirmed the deaths of a 65-year old male from Kanawha County and a 60-year old male from Berkeley County.

West Virginians wanting further help using the calculator are welcome to call the West Virginia COVID-19 Vaccine Info Line: 1-833-734-0965.
