Facts and fears: What Shasta County needs to know about covid vaccines 09/08/2021

Published September 9, 2021

The county’s current case rate for the virus (462 per 100,000) is more than four times the number considered high transmission (> 100 per 100,000) by the Centers for Disease Control.   Rapid spread of the disease within Shasta County is attributed to the more contagious Delta variant of COVID-19 as well as the relatively low rates of vaccination in the county.
