The City of Amarillo will now start adding a new feature to the Covid-19 Report Cards.
Starting today the Public health Department will start showing how many vaccinated and unvaccinated patients are currently in the hospitals with Covid-19.
Currently there are 127 people hospitalized with 90.6% being unvaccinated to 9.4% being vaccinated.
This information will be provided each Friday in cooperation with the Baptist St. Anthony’s Health System, the Northwest Texas Healthcare System and the Amarillo VA Healthcare System.
Amarillo Mayor Ginger Nelson. “Citizens asked for information about how many hospital patients are unvaccinated. We heard their request for this information, and thanks to our hospitals providing the data, citizens can now see local data showing that vaccines will greatly improve their chances of not being hospitalized if they become ill from COVID-19,”.
The data will also be available at amarilloalerts.com
