Healthy Communities Real-Time Pandemic Decision Making

Question

FDA recently announced an emergency use authorization of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for children 5 through 11 years of age. CDC has subsequently recommended the pediatric COVID-19 vaccine for children 5 through 11 years of age. With the expanded eligibility for nearly 28 million children in the United States, first dose vaccinations in this age group are expected to go up in the coming weeks leading up to the holidays.

As of December 2nd 2021, of the 723,069 individuals in this age group, 22.9% of the population has received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

What will be the percentage of the 5-11 year olds vaccinated with at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine in Virginia on December 31st, 2021?

The question will be resolved using the % of the population vaccinated with at least one dose in the 5-11 age group in Virginia as of December 31st, 2021 from the Vaccine Demographics tab of COVID-19 Vaccine Dashboard maintained by the Virginia Department of Health.
