%VA 18-24 age group fully vaccinated on 1 Oct

Healthy Communities Keep Virginia Safe Tournament

Question

In Virginia, younger age groups have recently made up a growing share of overall vaccinations — see slide 11 in the 28 July COVID Impact report. However, the overall number of new daily vaccinations has recently plateaued at a low of about 12k.

As of 31 July, 43.5% of the 18-24 age group in Virginia is fully vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2.

What percentage of Virginia’s 18-24 age group will be fully vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 by 1 October 2021?

This will resolve as the percentage of 18-24 year old Virginians who are fully vaccinated as of 1 October 2021. This value will be accessed on the “Percent of the Population Fully Vaccinated - By Age Group” chart on the VDH “COVID-19 Vaccine Demographics” dashboard.
