County reaches vaccination milestone

Oakland County reached a significant milestone last week when the state reported that 70 percent of county residents had received at least the first dose of COVID-19 vaccines.
That said, Oakland County Executive David Coulter noted with nearly 30 percent of the county’s residents still unvaccinated, it’s not time yet to plan a parade.
Instead, the county’s Health Division will concentrate on a back-to-school push in an effort to get as many residents vaccinated as possible, especially in the 12-24 age group.
“We’re among the first counties in the state and the first in Metro Detroit to reach this goal and I’m so happy that so many county residents took the initiative to keep themselves, their families, friends and neighbors safe from this insidious virus,” Coulter said. “But while reaching this vaccination goal is an important moment to acknowledge, we’re not done fighting this pandemic. The Delta variant of the virus is still present in the state and Oakland County and these new mutations of COVID are highly contagious.”
