We're currently at 69.6%, which is so so close, but it's been quite some time since we've gotten close to 70% but still haven't gone past that mark. Part of that has to do with the limited amount of people on the east side of the state who have decided to get the vaccine and on the East side counties like Stevens and Garfield counties. Have less than 30% of the residents with at least one shot, and the vaccine hesitancy here and across the country is leading to continued spread of those brutal variance.

Nick. Problem explains why health experts are afraid that 1/4 surge of covert 19 may happen in the near future. Dr. Ali Meqdad says he and other medical professionals are paying close attention with keeping an eye on them. Cases of covert 19 keep going down, but what's continuing to spread our new variants of the virus? Whether it be the UK, South African or one of the several variants founded the U. S. Each new form of the virus means a greater challenge. As the state continues to vaccinate as many people as possible Look, Dodds says That challenge could be even greater as early as the spring. We talking about this suits that could come like in April or may simply because of this new variants are introduced in the United States. These new variants, which some have been found to spread faster than earlier forms of covert 19. Could lead. The case is going right back up in a few months time so we could end up going back up that the type of wave that we just went through during December January, Dr Chris Peters with Snohomish Health District, says one way to limit the chances of this potential fourth search from happening is to follow current guidelines and to keep staying away from people. You don't live with less covert. That's out there, two or three months from now, the less chances will get future variants. The most part, vaccines appear to still work against most of the variance with the South African strain being a little more difficult to overcome. Look dot however, says As long as we stay ahead of these variants, we hopefully won't see a drastic fourth. Serge, you have to keep an eye on what's circulating, preach the vaccine to make sure we are still having looked odd says even if there was to be 1/4 surge, he believes that Mortality rate would still stay very low because of case is continuing to rise. Even if the case arrives, the mortality rate would stay low, he says. There may come a point that we could need an additional boost of vaccine to potentially offset these new variants.

I did receive the vaccine last week, and my arm was sore like quickly shot, and then the next day it was completely fine. Relating his experience with his staff and residents about 90% of those residents are taking the vaccine, but only about half of the staff. It just depends sort of on various amounts of clover that have been in your building so some buildings that have had more cases in the building the staff see What's happening to the if their co workers how contagious it is and how easy it is to get, Miller says. There's some misinformation and skepticism floating around. So he and other health leaders are hosting Webinars to educate staff members and you hear about the person who got it and then passed out. Well, then you find out what they passed out because they were scared of needles and Completely unrelated to the vaccine. So just like any vaccine or anything, you get your flu shot, and some people have a reaction to it. Pete Van Runkle, executive director of the Ohio Healthcare Association, recently expressed the same concern. There's all of these weird things of microchips and things like that, which is all craziness, but, you know, some people think that that is true and S so we have to deal with that. Miller says he thinks more staff members will take the shot when more doses are delivered to the old high school game. That's a minimize it, but you know you go first. If your arm doesn't fall off up, I'll be the next one him, and he's reminding people that life can go back to normal until there's some immunity.
