The Retail Pharmacy Partnership dataset represents doses of vaccine allocated from the federal government directly to Pennsylvania’s retail pharmacy partners. The partners then determine which stores to send the allocated doses to, with the department’s input to ensure we are meeting the needs of all Pennsylvanians.
This dataset will be updated Wednesday’s at 12:00pm.
The following dataset provides facility-level data for hospital utilization aggregated on a weekly basis (Friday to Thursday). These are derived from reports with facility-level granularity across two main sources: (1) HHS TeleTracking, and (2) reporting provided directly to HHS Protect by state/territorial health departments on behalf of their healthcare facilities.
The hospital population includes all hospitals registered with Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) as of June 1, 2020. It includes non-CMS hospitals that have reported since July 15, 2020. It does not include psychiatric, rehabilitation, Indian Health Service (IHS) facilities, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities, Defense Health Agency (DHA) facilities, and religious non-medical facilities.
For a given entry, the term “collection_week” signifies the start of the period that is aggregated. For example, a “collection_week” of 2020-11-20 means the average/sum/coverage of the elements captured from that given facility starting and including Friday, November 20, 2020, and ending and including reports for Thursday, November 26, 2020.
Reported elements include an append of either “_coverage”, “_sum”, or “_avg”.
A “_coverage” append denotes how many times the facility reported that element during that collection week.
A “_sum” append denotes the sum of the reports provided for that facility for that element during that collection week.
A “_avg” append is the average of the reports provided for that facility for that element during that collection week.
The file will be updated weekly. No statistical analysis is applied to impute non-response. For averages, calculations are based on the number of values collected for a given hospital in that collection week. Suppression is applied to the file for sums and averages less than four (4). In these cases, the field will be replaced with “-999,999”.
This data is preliminary and subject to change as more data become available. Data is available starting on July 31, 2020.
Sometimes, reports for a given facility will be provided to both HHS TeleTracking and HHS Protect. When this occurs, to ensure that there are not duplicate reports, deduplication is applied according to prioritization rules within HHS Protect.
For influenza fields listed in the file, the current HHS guidance marks these fields as optional. As a result, coverage of these elements are varied.
This map is based on the Drug Take-Back Box Locations dataset which reports the site name, street address, city, county, zip code, telephone number, hours of availability, latitude, and longitude of Pennsylvania prescription drug take-back boxes as of May 2018. These monitored locations include police departments, courthouses, pharmacies, and hospitals/medical centers.

Week of May 3rd is the final week that DOH will provide a 1st dose and 2nd dose allocation files. The 1st and 2nd dose allocation files will remain on Open Data, but they will no longer be updated.
Beginning Tuesday, 5/11/21, only one vaccine allocation file will be provided. The Department of Health will be switching to universal doses allocation. That is, there will no longer be a distinction between vaccines allocated for 1st versus 2nd doses.
