I’m proud to share that that 80% of adult residents (18+) in Nassau County have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose, the highest percentage among large Counties in New York State and well above the national average. Across the board, Nassau is leading the way, over-performing State and National vaccination rates among Adults, Seniors (65+), as well as among Black and Latino residents.
Nassau’s high vaccination rate has driven COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths to the lowest levels since the beginning of the pandemic, giving us the freedom to safely live, work, and play as we see fit.
This virus has not disappeared, however, and as more contagious COVID-19 variants like Delta emerge, getting vaccinated remains the single best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from getting sick or dying from Covid.
The County is keeping a vigilant eye on the numbers and external developments, and we continue to encourage eligible residents who haven’t gotten their shots yet to roll up their sleeves.
