HR County Seeing Bump In Vaccinations

Hood River County health officials say they are seeing an increase in people seeking out either a dose of a COVID-19 vaccine or a booster shot.  County COVID-19 Response Coordinator Daron Ryan says a combination of the end of the holidays and the transmissibility of the Omicron variant has led to a bump in demand.  She says over 88 percent of the County’s population over the age of 18 have been vaccinated, and 42 percent has received either a third dose or booster.  Ryan says figures for pediatric vaccinations are harder to determine, but she added the County’s health partners have administered a large amount of those shots, and demand has slowed.
