Yavapai County health officials are urging residents, who have not yet been vaccinated from COVID-19, to get vaccinated. Officials say Yavapai County has had 138 cases of COVID-19 since Friday. Leslie Horton, Director of Yavapai County Community Health Services says, “many people would like to believe that COVID-19 is behind us, however it is still very much here, and it’s spread has created a substantial increase in illness as well as hospitalizations this week.” With the delta strain of the virus now circulating in Arizona, the symptoms are a little different than the original strain. It may seem like a very bad cold and it is very contagious. The concern is that these symptoms could be brushed off as just a cold. If you are not feeling well, please stay home and take care of yourself, and stay in touch with your doctor. So far just over 35-percent of Yavapai County is fully vaccinated, while nearly 44-percent have had at least one dose. Health officials say those who are unvaccinated, or under vaccinated, are at risk from the virus. To get vaccinated, contact the Yavapai Regional Medical Center, Spectrum Healthcare, or log onto vaccinefinder.org.
