The Springfield-Greene County Health Department is giving us a glimpse of how effective COVID-19 vaccinations are at the local level.
Health leaders say local data indicates just 2% of Greene County residents who have tested positive for the virus since January were fully vaccinated.
The health department also says there were no new deaths reported in the county for the week of May 5-11, 2021.
This is the third time in 42 weeks the health department has had zero new deaths for a one week period.
Deaths have gone from a high of 98 in December to 66 in January, 14 in February, seven in March, and four in April.
