(March 31, 2021 6:25 PM) The Jackson County Health Department (JCHD) reported today a total of 67,605 COVID vaccination doses have been administered to Jackson County residents, with 26,830 residents fully vaccinated (receiving 2 doses of Pfizer or Moderna or 1 dose of Johnson & Johnson).  As of today, 20.8% of county residents over the age of 16 have completed their doses and 33% have had their initial dose.

JCHD also released figures today that show Jackson County has a 14.7% seven-day positivity rate, compared with 13.3% statewide.  The health department said there are a total of 28 COVID variant cases in Jackson County.  

Current trends in Jackson include an increase in school-age individuals, as well as those residents in the 30-50 age group. The department continues to see a spread of the B 1.1.7 and B 1.351 variant, which are more transmissible.  

Earlier this month, the Michigan Department of Human Services reported the first Michigan case of the COVID-19 variant B.1.351 was identified in a male child living in Jackson County.  This variant was originally detected in early October 2020 in South Africa.  Other variants have originated in Great Britain and Brazil.  While 28 variant cases are being reported, the routine COVID tests do not detect variants.  Additional lab tests are required and only small samples are sent for variant testing.

JCHD today disputed reports published elsewhere of Jackson County having the highest case rate of COVID in the nation.  In a statement, JCHD said, “We have been unable to verify recent reports of Jackson County having the highest case rate of COVID in the nation. The State of Michigan data (https://www.mistartmap.info/) and our Jackson County Health Department website data are accurate, which reflect other communities in the State of Michigan as having higher COVID rates than Jackson. While the State of Michigan has seen an increase in COVID cases, we encourage residents to continue the preventative measures recommended by the CDC.”

JCHD continues to encourage residents to get vaccinated.  The Jackson County Health Department COVID vaccine webpage remains a source of information concerning vaccinations.  Vaccines are distributed to Jackson County residents in coordination with healthcare partners such as hospitals, federally qualified health centers, pharmacies, and the local public health department. 

The COVID Vaccine Page will provide more information regarding where clinics are available and how to sign up for a Health Department clinic. Pre-registration for a Health Department clinic is done through the Online Vaccine Interest Survey. If you do not have internet access or need assistance with registering for a vaccine, please ask a friend or family member to help. 

In addition to the following clinic locations, updated information on locations and vaccine availability can be found at vaccinefinder.org. 

Appointments are required at all sites unless indicated. Most local pharmacies require a phone call to schedule an appointment while national chains provide a website to sign up.
