Discussion Held On Local Pandemic Response At Jefferson County B.O.S Meeting

The Jefferson County Board Of Supervisors met in regular session on Monday morning where they were joined by Jefferson County Public Health Administrator Chris Estle for discussion related to the local public health pandemic response. Estle informed the Board that for those with a Jefferson County address the overall vaccination rate currently stands at 29.1%, 48% for those 65 and older, 22.6% for the 50-64 population and 28.4% for those 18-49. 

Estle also said that she requested a smaller allocation from the state, normally shared with JCHC and Summit Pharmacy, however that request was declined. Showing the lack of demand is the J&J clinic set for this Friday at JCPH where as of Monday morning only 35 of 135 spots were filled. Prior to the J&J pause a couple of weeks back, JCPH had all 135 spots filled prior to the cancellation. 

Also at the meeting, the Board gave the go ahead to the County Treasurer to apply fees with 2.5% interest on September taxes for cleanup of nuisance properties. On Wednesday afternoon the Board is set to Interview an applicant for the County Engineer position in a possible closed session
