About 36 percent of people in Eau Claire County are now fully vaccinated against the coronavirus.
But that’s about where the numbers have been for the past week or so. The county says they’ve hit a vaccine plateau. Health Director Lieske Giese says they are trying to make it as easy as possible for people to get the shot. Giese says there are plenty of walk-in clinics open across Eau Claire.
Follwing some more of the data we see that the people who are most vulnerable to the coronavirus are the most vaccinated.
The state’s Department of Health Services yesterday said nearly 75 percent of people 65 and older are now fully vaccinated against the virus. That comes to a little more than 760 thousand people. Most of Wisconsin’s coronavirus deaths have come among older folks who live in nursing homes or assisted living facilities. CLICK HERE FOR MORE FROM WI DHS.
