OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — On Tuesday, a Douglas County Health Department official said the county is seeing more people get a third COVID-19 vaccine dose.
The department shared the latest data on the vaccinations with the county board of commissioners today and said around 37,600 people who live in Douglas County received a booster dose so far.
"We're doing a lot of booster vaccinations. In fact, 68.6% of all vaccines administered in Douglas County last week were booster doses,” said a Douglas County Health Department member.
Just under 58% of all county residents are now fully vaccinated but health officials say they would like to see that number increase.
