Just over 11 percent of Russell Countians have been fully vaccinated

A new report from the Washington Post examining vaccination rates across the United States shows that just over 11 percent of Russell County residents have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

The data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control shows that 11.4 percent of Russell County residents are fully vaccinated, meaning they’ve received both doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

The data does not include individuals who have received only one dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines thus far.

Nearly one-fourth of Russell County residents age 65 or older are fully vaccinated, which falls below state and national averages. At the time of the report, 24.7 percent of Russell County residents 65+ years old were fully vaccinated, well below the state average of 42.8 percent and below the national average of 45.9 percent.
