And Oregon is the latest example of why you want to get vaccinated.
From Oregon’s weekly summary this week:
Cases of COVID-19 are much more common in unvaccinated Oregonians than in vaccinated
The rate of COVID-19 cases among unvaccinated individuals in the most recent week was approximately six times the rate of COVID-19 cases among fully vaccinated individuals.
Community spread remains elevated throughout the state and is particularly high in areas with lower vaccination rates.
And the most important sentence: Vaccination remains the most effective tool to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
