4.16.2021 PHS Reports Milestone of 30% of District Fully Vaccinated

Public Health Solutions (PHS) reports over 30% of the eligible population in the five-county district has now been fully vaccinated. According to DHHS, 31.01% of residents aged 16 and older have achieved fully vaccinated status.

“We know this number is actually higher”, stated Kim Showalter, PHS Health Director. “We only offer Moderna and a small amount of Johnson & Johnson vaccine in our district so technically, we can only vaccinate individuals 18 and over. If you adjust the population data to account for this, our percentage would be higher. We are very excited to hit the 30% mark and hope we will continue to see this number grow each week”.
