New Dashboard Shows COVID-19 Cases By Vaccination Status

The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) COVID-19 in Virginia dashboards now include information on the number of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths by vaccination status. They also include data to track COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. Vaccine breakthrough means someone who is fully vaccinated develops COVID-19.


"Over 99% of COVID-19 cases in Virginia have occurred in people who were not fully vaccinated," said State Health Commissioner M. Norman Oliver, M.D., M.A. "I continue to encourage everyone who is able to get vaccinated to do so."

Post-COVID Conditions

Although most people with COVID-19 get better within weeks of illness, some people experience post-COVID conditions. Post-COVID conditions are a wide range of new, returning, or ongoing health problems people can experience four or more weeks after first being infected with the virus that causes COVID-19. Even people who did not have COVID-19 symptoms in the days or weeks after they were infected can have post-COVID conditions.
