COVID-19 Vaccine Summary

Learn more about cases, hospitalizations, and deaths by vaccination status on the Cases by Vaccination Status dashboard. This dashboard is updated weekly on Fridays.

A large difference between the number of COVID-19 vaccine doses distributed and the number of doses administered is expected due to several factors. The vaccine is distributed in large quantities and should then be administered in clinics over the next 7-10 days. Additionally, healthcare providers report doses to Virginia Immunization Information System (VIIS) up to 72 hours after administration.

People vaccinated with at least one dose: Total number of people who received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, including those who received one dose of the one-dose Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen (J&J) COVID-19 vaccine. This metric includes all people who have received only one dose and those who received at least one dose.

People fully vaccinated: Total number of people who have received two doses of Pfizer or two doses of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine or one dose of Pfizer and one dose of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, orr one dose of the one-dose Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen (J&J) COVID-19 vaccine).

People vaccinated with booster or third dose: Total number of people who received a booster or a third dose of COVID-19 vaccine. A booster of the COVID-19 vaccine is recommended six months after completing the primary two-dose series for some people with underlying medical conditions or at high risk. An additional (third) dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is recommended 28 days after completing a primary two-dose series for people with a weak immune system.

Total doses administered:  This number represents the total doses administered to individuals in Virginia, regardless of whether it was a first dose or a second dose. This number will be greater than the number of individuals who have received at least one dose because some people will have received more than one dose.

Doses Received: Cumulative counts of COVID-19 vaccine doses (Moderna and Pfizer) recorded as shipped in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Vaccine Tracking System (VTrckS) since December 13, 2020. Doses received include vaccine allocated to the Federal CDC Pharmacy Partnership for Long Term Care Facilities.

Data on this dashboard include residents of Virginia who were vaccinated in Tennessee and Maryland.

Note: Getting the COVID-19 vaccine is sometimes a two-step process. A person will get one shot, or dose, of the vaccine. After 3-4 weeks, a person will need to get a second dose of the vaccine. Getting both doses of the vaccine is important. This will help the vaccine protect people from getting COVID-19 or becoming as sick if they do get COVID-19.
