The COVID-19 stats Colorado isn’t sharing with the public

Westword: Colorado has been among the national leaders in transparency regarding COVID-19, publishing loads of information on the state health department’s website that is easily accessed by the public.

But there’s one type of statistic the state isn’t planning to share: the number of people who contract the novel coronavirus after being vaccinated.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment confirms that this information is being collected. But the state is planning to send it to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention rather than posting it online.
