September 24, 2021 Report

Fairfield County’s COVID-19 case numbers declined by 15% this past week. Over the past seven days we have had 626 new COVID-19 cases reported, for a rate of 397 cases per week per 100,000 population. We had 25 new hospitalizations in the past week, and 3 additional COVID-19 related deaths were reported. There were 627 new first dose vaccinations given last week, with 51.8% of Fairfield County residents having received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

We are waiting for the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) to meet tomorrow and provide recommendations on COVID-19 booster doses. Once the CDC and FDA release formal policies we will be able to provide more information on boosters.  Reducing the number of unvaccinated individuals remains our best tool to end this pandemic and increasing vaccination rates continues to be FDH’s top priority.
