According to the CDC’s website, 64.4% of the total population of Windham County has had at least one does of a COVID vaccine. 55.8% are fully vaccinated.
Keep this in mind as we crow about Vermont’s high vaccination rates. We haven’t hit 70% in Windham County yet. We’re much closer to “half way there” than the “almost 100%” people like to assume.
For example, I saw this in an event press release today: “Unvaccinated individuals discouraged from attending. The reported 93% publicly health-minded in Brattleboro who ARE vaccinated are encouraged to wear masks due to uncertainties about Delta variant. ” Not only does this get the number wrong, it implies that unvaccinated individuals aren’t publicly health-minded.
The CDC classifies Windham County as having “moderate” community transmission, a step above “low”. Stay safe.
