More than 7,300 Schuylkill County residents have gotten the full vaccine for COVID-19. That represents approximately 7% of the county’s population that’s been approved to receive a vaccine (people over 16).

There are about 10,400 people who are awaiting their second dose now after receiving a first dose of the COVID vaccine, according to data provided by the Pennsylvania Dept. of Health.

While there is some lag in the reporting of vaccine doses administered, it’s clear that last week there was a severe drop in the number of vaccines delivered. As of Sunday night, from Feb. 14-20, 2,878 Schuylkill County residents got a COVID vaccine last week. That’s down from the 4,244 people who got a shot the week prior. A total of 1,714 people became fully vaccinated last week, compared to 1,966 the week prior (Feb. 7-13).

Statewide, 528,049 people have gotten their full COVID vaccine.

The slow week for COVID vaccines in Schuylkill County is likely due to the state’s screwing up Moderna vaccine administration. Last week, Acting Health Secretary Alison Beam revealed that nearly 200,000 Pennsylvanians received the wrong dose of the Moderna vaccine. Beam said tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians would have to reschedule their appointment for a vaccine due to the error that she said started back in January.
