Supervisor Margaret Angela Franklin issued a directive to the county staff Equity Working Group to coordinate with the Health District to get better demographic data on the COVID-19 vaccination program that is responsive to earlier requests of members of the BOCS, and to develop a plan to ensure that the COVID-19 vaccinations are distributed equitably. The most recent data reported to the Prince William County Board of County Supervisors indicates that the Prince William Health District has administered 50,837 doses and 11,978 residents are fully vaccinated.

“My colleagues and I are very concerned about lack of demographic data available on the COVID-19 vaccination program. It is imperative that we have current and reliable demographic data to assess the effectiveness of the program and its equitable distribution.” Supervisor Franklin said.

Supervisor Margaret Angela Franklin was elected to the Prince William Board of County Supervisors on Nov. 5, 2019. She is among the first African American women to serve on the Prince William Board of Supervisors. She was also elected to serve as Chair Pro Tem and Chair of OmniRide.
