THIS PAGE IS NO LONGER UPDATED. Until May 2023, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution kept this page active with data publicly reported by the Georgia Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Effective May 11, 2023, the U.S. ended its public health emergency for COVID-19. After that date, some data collected on this page was no longer reported with the same refrequency or accuracy.
The AJC is keeping this page active for achiving purposes only.
The CDC has been moving away from case counts and testing results due to the increasing reliance on home tests that aren’t reported to any agency. The agency no longer tracks community levels of COVID and instead focuses on hospitalizations and deaths.
Because of the lag in reporting, numbers typically trail the actual spread of infections by more than a week. Death reports in particular can take weeks to arrive.
Vaccination rates in the U.S. and Georgia
Here, vaccination rates provided by the CDC show the percentage of Georgians and Americans who got one shot of a vaccine, both shots, and a booster. Georgia generally trailed the nation in vaccine rates.
