Question

Disparities in COVID-19 outcomes have affected many populations in Virginia and the nation. To ameliorate these disparities, Virginia has prioritized health equity in its response, including its vaccination efforts. Nevertheless, systemic discrimination and historical injustice is challenging to overcome.

The Virginia Department of Health reports COVID-19 case, hospitalization, death and vaccination rates for each racial/ethnic group were compared to the White group rate in the form of a rate ratio. For example, if the Black group rate was 2 and the White group rate was 1, then the rate ratio would be 2 and would mean that the Black group rate was 2 times higher than that of the White group.

What will the cumulative vaccination rate ratio for Asian and Pacific Islander Virginians be in July 2021?

The question will resolve based on the July data posted on the Virginia Department of Health's COVID-19 Data Insights Blog or dashboard.

If the rate ratio exceeds 2, this will resolve as > 2.
