Did You Know? Weston’s Current Vaccination Statistics
In the midst of changing eligibility categories and a scramble for appointments, Weston has about one-third of its residents who have at least one does of a COVID-19 vaccine, according to the latest Massachusetts Department of Public Health data. About 17% of Weston’s population has been fully vaccinated (1,861 people).
As of last Thursday’s reported numbers, 31% of Weston residents have received at least one dose of a vaccine (including first doses of Moderna or Pfizer vaccines, or the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine).
The Owl has requested information about staff/faculty vaccination percentages from the school district, but those were not available at the time of “printing.” Hopefully, Weston is somewhere around the numbers that were recently published for Welllesley (thank you, sWellesley Report) at 62% of Wellesley schools staff having had at least the first dose.
Today marks the beginning of Phase 2 for Massachusetts which means that people aged 60+ and certain workers are now eligible.
The mass.gov website also encourages all residents to preregister to book an appointment at a mass vaccination site. More information can be found through Weston’s Board of Health webpage.
