Wasco County Needs 1,619 More To Be Vaccinated For Lower Risk

Wasco County needs 1,619 more people over the age of 16 to be vaccinated to get to the 65 percent mark that would move the County into the lower category in the state’s COVID-19 risk metrics.  That’s what North Central Public Health District Health Officer Dr. Mimi McDonell told County Commissioners on Wednesday.  McDonell says that Mid-Columbia Medical Center’s primary care clinic will start offering COVID-19 vaccine next week, and she hopes that will help increase the number of people getting the shots.  She reported that Wasco County will remain in the moderate risk category for at least one more week, as the latest two-week count that ended May 29 showed 37 new COVID-19 cases reported in the County, over the 30 to be in the lower risk.category without a 65 percent vaccination rate.
