news flash - vaccine update

Local hospitals continue to see a surge in patients and ICU admissions due to severe illness caused by the COVID-19 Delta variant. 

As of Thursday, 192 individuals were being treated for COVID-19 at Springfield hospitals. Compared to last month on June 9, 92 individuals were being treated. 70 individuals are currently in the ICU. The seven-day rolling average for new cases is 154 -- a 21% increase over the past week.  

Young and healthy individuals are particularly being impacted by the Delta variant. Cases in individuals ages 0-4 increased 203% from June 21-July 4 compared to the previous two weeks. Everyone 12 and older is strongly encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as possible to not only protect themselves, but children who are not yet eligible for vaccine. 

The vaccines are safe, effective and help prevent severe illness and hospitalizations. It is strongly recommended that individuals who have previously had a COVID-19 infection get vaccinated to help build protection against the Delta variant.
