COVID-19 Vaccination Dashboard

An interactive dashboard informing about the German coronavirus vaccination campaign

The official vaccination dashboard informs the public about the vaccination progress against SARS-CoV-2 in Germany.

We build and designed a set of easy to grasp interactive visualizations that communicate the vaccination campaign’s state. At first glance, visitors can view multiple vital indicators such as vaccine doses administered, the daily vaccination rate, and the percentage of the overall vaccinated population.

The dashboard is brilliant and very informative. It is my favorite spot to inform myself about corona and the vaccination progress.

The site’s daily updated data set includes information about delivered and administered vaccine doses, both on a federal and regional level. Visitors can explore this information through visualizations that focus on clarity and simplicity, such as a custom-designed vaccination clock.

The clock tracks the time a visitor has spent on the website and correlates it to the people vaccinated during that period. It provides a sense of the speed of the campaign in an associative way.

The mobile-first design attaches particular importance to accessibility, usability, and overall broad comprehensibility via the following core visualizations.

Vaccination Progress

The chart visualises how many people have received their first jab, how many have had their second, and how long the overal vaccination campain has been running.

The daily doses chart communicates how many vaccination doses have been administered on which day. First dose: light blue, second dose: dark blue (for vaccines that require a second one.

The bar chart interactively shows the vaccination rate per day.

Vaccination Progress by States

A detailed regional breakdown for fully vaccinated people, people who received their first jab, vaccine doses administered, and vaccine doses delivered is visualized on a map of Germany.

Visitors can filter the map by fully vaccinated, the first jab, vaccine doses administered, and vaccine doses delivered. It allows visitors to compare the detailed data of the vaccination progress between the federal states of Germany.

Vaccine Supplies

The stacked bar chart breaks down the delivered doses by different manufacturers.

Milestones

The campaign’s overall progress can be examined through a timeline of milestones. This birds-eye view communicates significant developments and achievements, such as vaccine approval and more than 1,000,000 vaccinated people.

A timeline allows the visitors to move through all past, current, and future vaccination campaign milestones.

Outreach

We designed the website from the ground up for shareability. A link to the dashboard in messengers and social media will always show a preview with the latest data, generated automatically when the data is updated.

Feedback from a Twitter user and an embedded chart in a tweet of the Federal Ministry of Health. Social media channels have been a valuable source of feedback throughout the project.
