[ARCHIVED] Public vaccination opportunities: Week of June 21-27

news flash - vaccine update

Many opportunities are available this week to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Due to increased disease spread in our community, individuals who have not yet been vaccinated are urged to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

As of Friday, June 18, the seven-day rolling average for new cases was 85 – a 26% increase over the past week. Since January, 95% of positive cases interviewed were not fully vaccinated. 

Vaccine is strongly encouraged for all individuals 12 and older -- including those who have previously tested positive for COVID-19. Reinfections are becoming more common, especially as the highly transmissible and more dangerous Delta variant continues to spread. Protection from previous infection cannot solely be relied upon to protect against future reinfection. The reinfection rate among Greene County residents was four times higher in May 2021 compared to January 2021.

Below is a list of opportunities for individuals to receive vaccine for the week of June 21-27:
