Preliminary COVID-19 Test Results: Nine New Cases, 11 Hospitalized;
Revised COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Schedule
12 Hospitalized for COVID-19
SPECIAL NOTE: Based on today's data, if we were to compare two (2) hypothetical populations of 100,000 people each, vaccinated versus unvaccinated, there would be 3 vaccinated people hospitalized for COVID-19 compared to 43 unvaccinated people hospitalized for COVID- 19. The risk of being hospitalized for COVID-19 is about 14 times higher for the unvaccinated as compared to the vaccinated. *Estimated population is based on DPHSS Immunization Program analysis of 2020 Census data. Updates are expected pending further Census 2020 data breakdown.
