“The Health Department has corrected data regarding the numbers of those vaccinated in the City. The Department did not realize that the count of “individuals with at least one dose” included the “partially vaccinated individuals.” The data has been corrected as of this week’s report. The number of residents “fully vaccinated” was not impacted by the error,” announced the City in a press release.
