The state of Montana has a new COVID-19 vaccine dashboard. The dashboard was launched on Monday so Montanans can check on the total number of vaccines administered, as well as how many Montanans have been fully immunized and doses administered per 1,000 eligible people.

“With over 77,000 safe and effective vaccine doses administered in Montana, we continue to make strides to protect the most vulnerable. We can make even greater progress if the federal government increases our supply,” Governor Gianforte said. “I encourage Montanans to use this dashboard to stay up to date on our progress to save lives and make the vaccine available to everyone who wants one.”

The new COVID-19 vaccine dashboard can be viewed by clicking on the button below.

“DPHHS is committed to providing as much information as possible regarding COVID-19 vaccine distribution in Montana,” said DPHHS acting Director Erica Johnston. “There’s much work ahead, but the new map shows the progress that has been made administering the vaccine to residents in local communities statewide.”

Last week, the Department of Health & Human Services (DPHHS) launched a new COVID-19 vaccine website landing page, including a map with local public health department information and resources. The map links to online and social media sites where jurisdictions share information on vaccine availability and scheduling. The map also includes the best local phone number to call, but Montanans are urged to utilize the online information first.

To date, 77,739 vaccine doses have been administered in Montana, with 14,704 Montanans fully immunized.

Here in Gallatin County, the health department has recently launched a new system to stay up to date with COVID vaccinations locally. To opt in, send a text message to 888777 with one of the following messages (all one word with no spaces as written):

● Phase1b
● Phase1c
● Phase2

You will then receive an acknowledgment of terms text followed by a confirmation message. You must send individual texts for each of the phases you want to receive notifications for.
