Kent County’s goal for reaching herd immunity is vaccinating 362,000 residents age 16 and older.
“Right now, we’re at about 50% of total population in that 16+ age group who’s been fully vaccinated. So, we definitely have a long way to go to reach that 70%.”
Brian Hartl is supervising epidemiologist with the Kent County Health Department.
“We’re definitely seeing a fall-off in the numbers of people entering the vaccination process. We’re still administering quite a few vaccines each day, about 4,500.”
