Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is the most important thing that can be done to stop the spread of the virus. In the Eastern Region of Virginia, 99% of all COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths that have occurred between late January and June of 2021 have occurred in non-fully vaccinated individuals.
