After a few weeks of zero positive COVID cases in our community, we now have 6 cases. The need to increase our vaccination rate is more important than ever as there are reported cases of the Delta variant in Morley. Delta spreads easily between people and may lead to more serious outcomes than other versions of COVID-19. In order to protect ourselves and our community, we need to be fully vaccinated.
Vaccines gives us a high level of protection from serious illness and death from COVID-19 variants, including Delta. The more people are vaccinated, the less opportunity the virus has to spread and develop new variants.
Our vaccination rate in Morley is very low in comparison to Alberta and Canada. Currently, nation members with ONE DOSE of vaccine is currently 63.9% and the goal is have at least 80% vaccinated with at least one dose. Only 17.5% of nation members between the ages of 12 and 17 have one dose. 46.4% of adults 18 years and older have one dose.
Nation members with TWO DOSES of vaccine is currently 46.6% and the goal is have at least 80% vaccinated. Only 10.6% of nation members between the ages of 12 and 17 have one dose. 36% of adults 18 years and older have one dose.
Encourage family members to get fully vaccinated.
