% vaccine-accepting Virginians on 14 Jan 2022

Healthy Communities Keep Virginia Safe Tournament

Question

The University of Virginia's Biocomplexity Institute is tracking the extent of vaccine acceptance in Virginia here. It adjusts vaccine acceptance data from COVIDcast to correct for biases. COVIDcast in turn gets its data from surveys of Facebook users who “say they have already received a COVID vaccine, have an appointment to receive a COVID vaccine, or would ‘definitely’ or ‘probably’ choose to be vaccinated if a COVID vaccine were offered to them today.”

The percentage of Virginians that are “Vaccine Accepting” was 80.93% on 18 November.

What will be the percentage of the population in Virginia indicating they are "vaccine accepting" on 14 January 2022?

This resolves as the percentage of Virginians who are "Vaccine Accepting" as of 14 January under the "Vaccinated vs Vaccine Accepting" chart on UVA's COVID-19 VaxStat Dashboard.
