Starting May 11, BCHD’s COVID-19 dashboard will focus on tracking cases, deaths, hospitalizations, the CDC COVID-19 Community Level, and COVID-19 vaccination data. Due to changes in COVID-19 test reporting requirements, both test volume and percent positivity can no longer be calculated; this data has therefore been removed from the dashboard, as well as outdated content. The revised dashboard will be updated weekly, reflecting the latest data.
Boosters are now recommended for individuals 12 years old and older
Any individual 18 years and older vaccinated with Johnson & Johnson vaccine should receive a booster dose 2 months after the single J&J dose. Individuals vaccinated with Johnson & Johnson should receive an mRNA (Moderna or Pfizer) booster. If an individual 18 years and old is unable to receive an mRNA vaccine due to allergic reaction, anaphylaxis, or other contraindication a Johnson & Johnson booster dose may be given.
