Lane County Vaccine Newsletter – April

Lane County is in our state warning week.  Due to increasing COVID-19 cases we are currently on track to move to High Risk Level starting Friday April 23. 
 
Please help lower our risk level by limiting gatherings, wearing masks, washing your hands, maintaining physical distancing, staying home when sick and working with contact tracers when they call you.
 
More information on the state guidance for risk levels and the process for counties moving between risk levels can be found here:

Weekly County Metrics

Traditionally, elders in communities of color hold an integral space as living history, story tellers and as a source of advisory or guidance.
 
Lane County Public Health worked with local elders to create vaccine confidence videos explaining why they received the vaccine as a way to encourage other members of our communities to get vaccinated by using our community’s original influencers – our elders.

The data reported is direct from Oregon Health Authority’s database, current to the time it was pulled. Since the data is constantly being updated, numbers can vary. Total vaccinations refers to doses, while persons vaccinated is referring to the people who received doses. There is sometimes a delay in reporting of doses administered (meaning the vials of vaccine have been distributed) and the connection to the persons who received it. The percentage of fully vaccinated does refer to those who have received both doses.
