“These tragic passings remind us that the pandemic is not over,” said Acting Governor Josh Tenorio. “To their loved ones, our hearts are with you during this most difficult time. With the holidays here and the promise that comes with a new year upon us, we must stay vigilant and stay the course. Continue to practice the three W’s, but also get vaccinated if you haven’t already and get your booster if it’s been six months or more since your last shot. These simple steps save lives and our collective efforts will get us through this together.”

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 6 vaccinated people hospitalized for COVID-19 compared to 37 unvaccinated people hospitalized for COVID- 19. The risk of being hospitalized for COVID-19 is about 6 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.
