Franklin County has pulled into a tie with Woodford County for the highest percentage of residents to have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
Both counties lead the state with 56% of the population vaccinated with at least one dose, followed by Fayette at 53%, Scott at 47% and Campbell at 46%.
“We cannot thank our community enough for playing such an active role in ending this pandemic,” Franklin County Health Department Deputy Director Brittany Parker said.
The health department is offering a survey to parents of children ages 12-15 to see if they would be interested in taking advantage of a vaccine clinic in the next two weeks where their children would receive a Pfizer (two-dose) COVID vaccine.
The survey is available at www.fchd.org/pfizer.
The health department reported three new confirmed cases of COVID Thursday for a total of 3,939 since the pandemic began in March 2020.
There are currently 31 active cases in Franklin County, with 23 in the community and eight in schools.
A total of 3,847 Franklin County residents have recovered from the virus and 61 have died from COVID-19 complications.
