COVID-19 Updates - November 2, 2021

The Centers for Disease Control published new science providing additional information that vaccination is our best and safest protection against COVID-19. The new MMWR examined more than 7,000 people across 9 states who were hospitalized with COVID-19-like illness. The findings showed that the study participants were over 5 times more likely to have COVID-19 if they were unvaccinated and had a prior infection than those that were vaccinated.

The data shows that vaccination can provide a higher, more robust, and more consistent level of immunity to protect people from hospitalization for COVID-19 than infection alone for at least 6 months.

“Vaccinations is one of the greatest public health interventions,” states Dr. Jim Shames, Health Officer for Jackson County Public Health. “Now we have three COVID-19 vaccines that are safe and highly effective at preventing severe COVID-19 illness and death. Getting vaccinated is going to be the best way to keep yourself and those you love safe and help our community return to normal.”
