On 19 November, the FDA authorized and the CDC recommended that all adults in the U.S. who have already completed primary vaccination with a FDA-authorized SARS-CoV-2 vaccine (2 doses of Pfizer, 2 doses of Moderna, or 1 dose of Janssen) can and should receive a booster dose. VDH subsequently urged all fully vaccinated adults in Virginia to get a booster dose.
As of 21 November, 1,076,029 Virginians have received a booster dose — which translates to 12.6% of Virginia’s population of 8,535,519 (2019 figure used by VDH).
When will the percentage of Virginians who have received a booster dose exceed 50%?
This question resolves on the basis of when the percentage of Virginia’s population that has received a booster dose exceeds 50% according to VDH’s COVID-19 Vaccine Summary dashboard . The number under “People Vaccinated with Booster/Third Dose” will be divided by the 2019 total population figure of 8,535,519 and then multiplied by 100 to get the 50% percentage figure that will be the threshold for positive resolution.
If this does not occur before 4 May 2022, it resolves as > 4 May 2022.
