Vaccinations significantly down in Escambia County

Escambia County and the City of Pensacola need to change their messaging and spend more money promoting COVID-19 vaccinations after the Florida Department of Health’s report thant total vaccinations dropped 31% last week from 10,119 for April 12-18 to only 6,989 for April 19-25.

The number of people who received their first dose of a two-dose series declined 47.5% – from 4,904 to 2,573.

Only 37.7% of our adult population has been vaccinated.

There will be point when the lack of vaccinated residents will impact tourism, employee and new business recruitment and military transfers in Escambia County.

  1. According to the 2019 Census Estimate, about 80% of Escambia County residents are 18 years of age or older (254,652). As of yesterday’s Florida Department of Health COVID-19 report, the number of people with “Series Complete” to include those as young as 16 is 68,535. That leaves “about” 186,117 adults in Escambia County yet to be vaccinated. I calculate the fully vaccinated rate in Escambia County to be about 27%. People seem to be losing interest and even fewer people are wearing masks in stores perhaps because so many believe that they are immune because they got their COVID-19 shots. The CRC recently put out some information worth reading by those who now believe they are immune –

  2. Maybe the city and county should divert resources from parking and portable bathrooms and get people vaccinated.
    How about a bloodmobile type facility near all the brewpubs?
