If you don't see the information you need in the FAQ section below, please contact Connor DeLoach here at SMG, who also maintains the data presented on this page.
Magnolia Regional Medical Center is the source of all data on positive COVID-19 patients at the hospital. WebIZ, or the Arkansas Immunization Information System, is used to determine each patient's immunization status.
Data for the 14-day rolling average for percent positivity comes from the Arkansas Department of Health. Everyday, the percent positivity is calculated by SMG personnel to generate a rolling average of 14 days. Every person in Columbia County who has been reported to the ADH for COVID-19 is included in this graph. Magnolia Regional Medical Center did NOT provide this information.
Magnolia Regional Medical Center staff collects the data, which is then examined by Southern Medical Group personnel.
If a COVID-19 patient visits the ER or is admitted to Magnolia Regional Medical Center, their immunization status is reviewed. After that, the patient is classified as either unvaccinated, fully vaccinated, or partially vaccinated.
The term "fully vaccinated" refers to a patient who has received two Pfizer or Moderna doses or one Janssen dose. The second vaccine must have been given at least two weeks previous to the hospital visit for Moderna and Pfizer. Janssen's single immunization has to be given at least two weeks prior to the hospital visit.
The term "partially vaccinated" refers to a patient who has only gotten one dose of Moderna or Pfizer, and that dose was given at least two weeks earlier to the hospital visit. This also includes individuals who have two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna, but within two weeks of the second dose.
The term "unvaccinated" refers to a patient who has not received any COVID-19 vaccine or who has not received the first immunization for at least two weeks previous to their hospital visit.
The information in this dashboard is updated on a weekly basis.
February is when the vaccine started being accessible to the public in Columbia County.
Patients with an unknown vaccine status means that they were absent from the WebIZ database. This means that no vaccinations have been recorded in the state of Arkansas. These patients, on the other hand, could have received a vaccine in another state. Due to this uncertainty, these individuals were excluded from these data analysis.
