The MCHD is in the process of auditing our COVID-19 data and have found cases that were never documented in our records as a confirmed case. In this week’s report, we’ve identified three individuals that were confirmed cases in January 2021 and May 2021. The monthly table with the number of confirmed cases has been updated to reflect these findings.
The 2021-2022 school year is just a little over a month away, and the MCHD offers the required vaccinations for children and adolescents attending schools and child care programs. Your doctor’s office or pharmacy may also give the vaccines. If you want your child to be immunized against COVID-19 by the time classes start, you need to act quickly. It takes five weeks to be fully vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine, which is the only one authorized for adolescents ages 12 to 17. The MCHD offers the COVID-19 vaccine every Friday at the MCHD office. Please call 419-586-3251 extension 1462 to ask questions or schedule an appointment.
