On the DSHS dashboard, all boosters are lumped together. It's posted as "People vaccinated with at least one booster."

Three things. First ICU always bad and prayers for patients and families. Second - as it becomes more of a cold and less of a flu the decrease in testing may lead to a higher percentage of the tested positive being ICU patients. Thirdly - being in ICU with Covid is different than being in the ICU from Covid. Since 100% of ICU patients are tested that is even more true. I know all 3 of these have been covered before but still bears remembering.

Note: Age group added 0-4 years old. CDC number is actually 6 mo to 4 years, but to simplify, I just use population group of 4 years or less. May not be exact but close enough to get an idea what is actually going on (and makes calulations simpler).

Note, this is intended to be "monthly" information but there is no actual "end of month" numbers. Data is posted daily and this is Aug31 vs Sep30.

FULL VACCINE STATUS:

Vaccinations by age groups with "full vax" status for the Texas and Brazos County as percent. Last two columns are the count of Brazos County residents with "full vax" along with change over last month, and finally county residents that have not had a full vaccination "BC = not full".

age -------- Tx -------- BC -------- BC = full vax --- BC = not full vax

0-4 ---------- 1% ------- 1% ----------- 158 (+50) ------- 13,559
5-11 ------- 29% ----- 18% --------- 3,540 (+43) ------- 16,392
12-15 ----- 61% ----- 42% --------- 4,698 (+9) ---------- 6,607
16-49 ----- 66% ----- 51% ------- 69,703 (+7) --------- 66,039
50-64 ----- 80% ----- 77% ------- 22,070 (+15) --------- 6,418
65-79 ----- 88% ----- 92% ------- 15,367 (+36) --------- 1,333
80++ ------ 79% ----- 93% -------- 4,541 (+-3) ------------ 364

50++ ------ 82% ----- 84% ------- 41,978 (+48) --------- 8,115
<50 ------- 53% ----- 43% ------ 119,919 (+157) ------ 97,153
All --------- 62% ----- 52% ------ 119,919 (+157) ---- 110,712


BOOSTER VACCINE STATUS:

Vaccinations by age groups with "boost(s)" (one or more) status for the Texas and Brazos County as percent. Last two columns are the count of Brazos County residents with "boost(s)" along with change over last month, and finally county residents that have not had a booster vaccination "BC = no boost".

age -------- Tx -------- BC ------- BC = boost(s) ------ BC = no boost

0-4 ---------- 0% ----- 0% ----------------- 0 (+0) --------- 13,717
5-11 -------- 4% ----- 3% -------------- 531 (+35) -------- 19,401
12-15 ----- 12% ----- 9% ------------- 969 (+13) -------- 10,336
16-49 ----- 21% ----- 15% ------- 20,919 (+154) ----- 114,823
50-64 ----- 41% ----- 40% ------- 11,327 (+67) -------- 17,161
65-79 ----- 60% ----- 65% ------- 10,925 (+103) -------- 5,775
80++ ------ 55% ----- 69% -------- 3,380 (+11) ---------- 1,525

50++ ------ 49% ----- 51% ------- 25,632 (+181) ------ 24,461
<50 ------- 16% ----- 12% ------ 48,051 (+383) ------ 169,021
All --------- 26% ----- 21% ------ 48,051 (+383) ------ 182,738


Total doses of all COVID vaccines county administered (normalized to PER WEEK):

Dec '21 ------ 4,599
Jan '22 ------ 3,586
Feb '22 ------ 1,355
Mar '22 -------- 673

Just an FYI, concerning "Dates of Death" information:

The state quit posting the spreadsheets in August.

"COVID-19 Case, Fatality & Hospital Data over Time - Excel Files

Note: The following data files are available by request on Mondays. Please email chs-info@dshs.texas.gov on Mondays for an updated file."


This is a cut & paste from my last post in August.

"NEW" reported by state in last 9 days ending 8/23/22.

PS: State did not update their spreadsheet until late yesterday (8/25) and the actual spreadsheet was dated 8/23. I had been posting once a week on Tuesdays. Will adjust based on frequency of state updates.

Since the information is a hassle, I haven't tried the email process. Mimi's info appears to indicate that the deaths are on the low end of the historical data. Anyway, unless the trend changes I probably won't update.

But to reiterate what Mimi said, the date reported and the actual date of death can be quite different, and especially if they "clean-up" their database.

Good to see those hospitalization numbers drop again.

I'm curious (though I think I know the answer) if we'll see stats on "long Covid" (post sars cov-2 syndrome) in the future? My doc at the Physician's Center is keeping data on the folks he's treating, I wonder how many others are. I think it's an interesting metric, though I'm fully aware it's controversial with many folks.

Are cases actually dropping that fast or have people stopped tesing and / or reporting?

Given how long reported cases were higher than most of the state (they had started to decline and then the students came back) a sharp drop really isn't a surprise.

And the majority of people are not testing anymore, or only use a home test, so we can assume the real number is higher, but the official test results still give a decent metric to see how active the virus currently is. The only people who really are getting lab tests done anymore do so because they get admitted to the hospital for something, visit a doctor and get tested because they're sick, because their employer requires it, or they still have a March 2020 mindset about the virus and get tested for every sniffle.
"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." - Sir Winston Churchill
