days; for instance, the worth for May 28 is the every day common for the times of May 21 by way of May 27.

Syndromic Surveillance
Vermont is utilizing the Electronic Surveillance System for the Early Notification of Community-based Epidemics (ESSENCE), which  supplies all particular person emergency division visits from taking part emergency departments1 to establish Emergency Department  visits for COVID-Like Illness (CLI).

During this reporting interval round 3% of emergency visits in taking part emergency  departments have included COVID-like sickness. This is the bottom proportion since March of 2022, although barely larger than the identical calendar dates within the earlier two years.

Vermont’s latest sequencing information reveals principally BA.2 and subvariants (as of the top of May and early June). For the week of 5/29, BA.4 and BA.5 accounted for 8.5% of the sequenced specimens, and these variants don’t appear to be displacing the BA.2 variants right now. (Sources: Broad; Health Department Whole Genome Sequencing program.)

1 All Vermont hospitals and two pressing care clinics are included in ESSENCE.

In addition, the variety of individuals within the Vermont Immunization Registry who establish as Pacific Islanders or Native American, Indigenous, or First Nation are a lot decrease than our Vermont Department of Health inhabitants estimates. These findings might be because of a number of of the next:

1) Pacific Islanders and Native/Indigenous Americans are much less more likely to report their race.
2) Pacific Islanders and Native/Indigenous Americans are receiving fewer vaccinations.
3) Health Department inhabitants estimates are overestimating the true inhabitants.
4) Race and ethnicity are collected by suppliers in a means that doesn’t align with how individuals establish.
