For total case counts, hospitalizations, deaths, general vaccination rates, transmission levels, and regional metrics, you can see that on our COVID19 page (should be updated by end of business day): https://vchd.org/covid-19/
We should have more information about when Moderna and J and J boosters will be available. While the initial approval is through, there are still a few channels that need to be checked before anyone is able to administer Moderna Boosters. We are looking at a couple dates in early November that we hope to have clinics offsite. More information to come.
Effective today, I will move to weekly updates again unless there is important information that needs to go out. Updates to our website will still occur on a daily basis during the week.
