New vaccine data visualization tool launched
This week, the International Vaccine Access Center (IVAC)—housed in the Department of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health—launched a new, publicly accessible interactive vaccine information and data visualization tool. VIEW-hub, the Vaccine Information and Epidemiology Window, enables users to instantly visualize data about vaccine introductions, product usage, dosing schedules, access, coverage, and more for a number of vaccines. Custom queries and maps, exportable data and graphics, and a map gallery are just some of the interactive features users can access.
Vaccine and data topics include:
- Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) vaccine
- Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV)
- Rotavirus vaccine
- Inactivated polio vaccine (IPV)
- Vaccine introductions and use
- Vaccine impact assessments
- Vaccine coverage
VIEW-hub extends the functionality and content of the former Vaccine Information Management System (VIMS), allowing users to track progress and strategize ways to accelerate and optimize vaccine implementation.
