AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — In a story published Aug. 20, 2021, about Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick blaming rising hospitalization and death rates from COVID-19 on unvaccinated Black people, The Associated Press erroneously reported the percentage of the state’s Black population that has been vaccinated. About 8% of the total number of people in Texas who have been fully vaccinated are Black, according to state data.
