  1. Allow rural people to get the Covid vaccination

    Your current portal to sign up for Covid vaccinations absolutely prevents anyone living further than 50 miles from a site with vaccine from signing up. This includes people in the highest risk categories. Is the plan to kill rural Arizonans? Why are you doing this?

  2. Vaccine scheduling website should have first available option

    Trying to find an open slot is a pain because most slots are full. Why not have a first available option so the website tells you when and where to show up, instead of a hit and miss of trying to guess when a vaccine slot may be available.

  3. High risk people younger than 65 need covid vaccinations too

    Until recently your announced policy would have let persons under 65 but high risk qualify for vaccination when over-65 persons qualified. I care for someone who needs it a lot more than persons being vaccinated now but she's 64. She's had 4 kidney transplants and has been on immunosuppressants for 45 years. I'm concerned you're focusing on populations you can glamorize in the news - like your pop up events - and forgetting who needs it most.

  4. Expand (CoVid) Find Vaccine map for Sedona / Cottonwood areas to include Sedona Walgreens & CVS & Cottonwood’s Spectrum Healthcare?

    We are a small group helping individuals getting their appointments and wanted to mention the following items.

    On your https://vaccinefinder.org/search/ re: the Sedona / Cottonwood areas would it be possible to include the Sedona Walgreens & CVS as well as Cottonwood’s Spectrum Healthcare?

    May we also suggest, it would be great if you might create a means both via the internet and perhaps by in coming phone call - where the last mile vaccination groups might more easily and consistently update their vaccine availability?

  5. The daily .xls download of COVID cases by zip has not been updated since 3-22-2021.

    It is 10:53AM on 3-25-2021 and the .xls download still matches the 3-22-2021 file. There are no error messages on the website. https://www.azdhs.gov/preparedness/epidemiology-disease-control/infectious-disease-epidemiology/covid-19/dashboards/index.php

    Has this been discontinued?

    Edited: 03-26-2021. 09:14 AM. I notice that the number of cases in the download file do not match the numbers in the online map display.

    Example. Zip code 85658. File: 937 Map: 939.

  8. Make raw data available

    I am a programmer and would like to view raw data for daily hospitalizations, total tests, and positive tests I am trying to show a daily percentage of positive tests over total tests so that the daily rise or fall can be viewed.

  9. Don't advise wearing a mask without including the CDC guidelines.

    Tests have shown COVID-19 alive in masks for seven days. CDC and Mayo Clinic clearly advise NOT to touch the mask while wearing. If you do, immediately sanitize hands. Otherwise the pathogens transfer to the hands and then to anything touched. ()https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/cloth-face-covering.pdf

    )https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/coronavirus/in-depth/coronavirus-mask/art-20485449
    Excerpt from both sites:
    “DON'T touch the face covering, and, if you do, wash your hands”

  11. COVID19 Hospitalization numbers don't add up correctly

    Please check the data you are providing for hospitalizations, covid specific inpatients, and covid discharge. None of the numbers presented add up to make any sense. For the past several weeks you have reported hospitlizations numbers lower than the discharge number yet somehow the total (current?) inpatient number increases? Is the covid inpatient tab a cummulative total? I doubt it is because somedays it decreases. The data should be easy to interpret. Current hospitalizations = Previous day total + new hospilizations - discharges. Currently, your data does not pass this simple math equation.

  13. Show hospital bed use/available as a stacked bar graph rather than percentage graph

    The way hospital bed usage and availability beds is shown, as percentages available/unavailable, doesn't reflect on the fact that the total number of beds has been changing with time. People can find that information by hovering over a bar for a particular date, but it is not immediately obvious how the total number of beds has changed over time. If this was displayed with the number of beds used on the bottom bar, and the number of available beds on the top bar, it would be immediately apparent how the total number of beds grew and when.

    For instance, the…

  14. 2-3 Years of Hospital and ICU Bed Data

    It would be helpful to compare this year's data against previous years data for the same months. This would give more context to the current situation. If hospital and ICU beds are normally only 60% used in previous years (March thru June) then there is more reason for concern. Also an overlay of COVID-related bed usage against total bed usage would also be helpful.

  16. Your graph for number of ICU beds in use and availble.

    During COVID we should see past use of ICU beds used/available as well as how many are being used by COVID patients vs other patients. This ends up being misleading as the rate you state for COVID patients is low, but ICU bed use is high. Maybe this is actually due to other patient needs and not due to COVID.

  18. Night-time COVID Testing Hours

    RE: COVID-19 Testing Site Hours
    It is much too hot and dangerous to be in line for hours in the daytime peak Arizona heat. I am a senior and have an old car without air conditioning. If I have COVID symptoms and/or am not feeling well, I definitely would not be able to sit in line without air conditioning for hours. Please remember that many low-income folks don't have cars or their cars don't have adequate air conditioning. Not everyone has family or friends to drive them to a test site.
    Suggestion: At least for the hot summer months, make…

  19. Your zipcode map doesn't convey much information when the entire map is red.

    Change the color ranges. The first four colors cover only <=200 cases. There's no way to determine zipcodes that are hardest hit without going through dozens of red ones. There are at least 2 zips over 2k now. Legend should be more like:

    0-500
    501-1000
    1001-1500
    1501-2000
    2001-2500
    Greater than 2500

    This legend will work for the next 6 wks hopefully. Then you will have to update again.

  20. Severity of Symptoms and Overreaction

    This whole COVID-19 is being blown out of proportion, the vast majority of people are not having life threatening symptoms. I have heard from many "experts" that social distancing is the opposite of what we should be doing to combat COVID-19. We need herd immunity! Why are the over 99% being asked to social distance when less than 1% are having severe issues. Of course we want to protect them, but at what cost. We have had much more severe virus threats in the past, why are we shutting the down because of this! The high risk and elderly can…
