Nearly Half of Montgomery County Residents Now Vaccinated Against COVID

Almost 50% of Montgomery County residents have received at least one coronavirus vaccination dose and nearly 30% of the total population has been fully vaccinated, according to the latest county health department data.

Despite concerns about shortages due to the manufacturing problems with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, residents were feted by Montgomery County leaders for their high vaccination percentages.

“And when you take out the people who can’t get vaccinated, it’s actually a much higher percent,” said County Executive Marc Elrich, WTOP reported. “And so, we’re really happy about where we’re moving with this. However, our Germantown mass vax site saw a 20% reduction in doses this week … which is really problematic. And that comes down obviously from the shortage of supply.”

Elrich said county officials are beginning to look at reopening, saying “we’ll be providing guideline metrics that are achievable metrics, not aspirational metrics.”

As of Thursday, 500,438 county residents have gotten one at least coronavirus dose and 314,633 have been fully vaccinated, according to county data.
