Although the Plansafe API's responses reflects public data, they should not be used as a be-all, end-all deciding factor for travel plans, level of health precautions taken, or any kind of mission-critical health decisions. Plansafe's Trends API responses are generated in part by analyzing recent county, state, and territory trends, as opposed to realtime live data. For this reason, exercise your best judgement when visiting any county, state, or territory based on Plansafe information. For this reason, Plansafe ("The Service") and its creators, owners, operators, programmers, and maintainers waive all liability resulting from users taking any kind of action based on the data and insights provided by The Service.
About the Data
Please be aware that the latest data is not always 100% accurate as states and counties update data at different times and sometimes retroactively make corrections to previous days' data. As a result, take any data viewed online, either from The Service or any website for that matter, with a pinch of salt. For United States county vaccination data, The Service looks across a multitude of CDC, state, and county dashboards, which in some cases have weekly update times for their data or do not regularly update their numbers whatsoever. As a result, any associated delays with the source data will be reflected by a field in the API response indicating the date at which the municipality recorded that data. In some cases, counties do not publish exact percentages for their vaccination status; in this case, a percentage estimate is calculated by using the most recently updated census population data for the county. For these reasons, data from The Service is not meant, and should not be used, for informing medical or other such mission-critical decisions. The Plansafe COVID-19 Vaccine Hunter (United States only) relies on scraped data from a multitude of state and county websites and publically accessible information from retailers, insurance providers, and hospital groups. Case and death counts data for both the United States and countries supported by the Plansafe COVID-19 Global Insights Dashboard are consolidated from the COVID-19 Data Repository by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University.
Vaccine Data Reporting
Issues with the California Immunization Registry data system have resulted in the number of vaccinations being underreported since March 2nd. The extent to which data is affected has not been released by public health officials but for this reason, data presented by The Service is not meant, and should not be used, for informing medical or other such mission-critical decisions.
Data presented may differ from other sites & sources
Many sources track and aggregate COVID-19 vaccine data. They update at different times and may gather data in different ways.
How is my location data used?
When accessing the Plansafe COVID-19 County Insights Dashboard for the first time,
you will be asked whether you want to enable location access. Your location is used to automatically load up
your county's insights on the dashboard. Put simply, your approximate location is used to determine the county or territory you are in.
When using endpoints of the Plansafe COVID-19 Data Suite, your public IP address is logged with your request. This gives a rough approximation of your location (usually the geographical center of the city or county the request is made from). No personally identifiable information, such as an exact address or name, is garnered from requests to the API. In addition, this rough location information is analyzed in aggregate to determine the most popular API calls for different regions and for debugging system issues.
