The Indian Health Service has updated its coronavirus data, showing COVID-19 vaccination distribution and administration as of April 13, 2021.

According to the data, the IHS has distributed 1,626,987 COVID-19 vaccine doses across 11 areas of Indian Country. Of that amount, 1,097,038 have been administered, representing 65.9 percent of the total.

The data shows the Oklahoma City Area has received the largest number of vaccines. The 438,790 doses account for nearly 27 percent of the total. Of that amount, 66.1 percent have been administered in the region.

With 246,765 doses distributed, the Navajo Area comes in second, accounting for 15.2 percent of the total across the IHS. Of those, 76.6 percent have been administered in the region.

According to the IHS, vaccination distribution and administration will be updated weekly across the 11 areas that are receiving doses directly from the agency.

Tribal health facilities in Alaska have chosen to receive their supplies from the state, so their region is not included in the data.
