To date, our county has over 80% of its residents ages 12 and over who have completed their final COVID-19 vaccination doses. While we celebrate the achievement of this significant milestone, we must all remain diligent. The highly transmissible Delta variant continues to drive an increase in cases and the unvaccinated are at higher risk of infections.
It is known that fully vaccinated people are well-protected from infections and serious illness due to known COVID-19 variants, including Delta variants. Vaccinating as many people as possible, as soon as possible, continues to be our best defense against severe COVID-19 infection.
