CORONAVIRUS INFO PROVIDED BY DR. JIM HARRIS – 03/18/2021

HELLO,

Between the storm, tax time, and feral hogs in the yard and garden, my production has slowed down. Most important right now to me is maximizing local vaccinations, staying current regarding the prevention and treatment of the mutants, and closely following the Spring Break numbers. Then I want to tune up my Harley so that I can be ready for Sturgis, SD in August! I anticipate that we can get by with fewer Mailouts. J. Harris

HOPKINS CITED:

1. Effectiveness of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine Among Residents of Two Skilled Nursing Facilities Experiencing COVID-19 Outbreaks — Connecticut, December 2020–February 2021

“Even with partial vaccination, Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine provides protection to SNF residents. To optimize vaccine impact among this population, high coverage with the complete 2-dose series is recommended.’

2. With respect to older adults, states are reporting wider variation in terms of vaccination coverage. Looking specifically at full vaccination for adults aged 65 years and older, the median coverage is 36.3%, and most states fall between approximately 32.5-41.5%. At the upper end, 2 states have fully vaccinated more than half of their older adult population: Alaska (55.6%) and Indiana (50.1%). At the other end of the spectrum, Oregon (21.8%) and Rhode Island (21.4%) are the only 2 states that have fully vaccinated less than a quarter of their older adult population.
