Lincoln needs to vaccinate more young people, health officials say |  Health and Fitness

As case numbers have dropped and vaccination numbers have increased, the Health Department has relaxed many of its directed health measures on things like capacity at indoor and outdoor venues. One measure it has not relaxed, however, is its mask mandate in most public indoor spaces. The COVID-19 risk dial stayed in the low-yellow range for the third straight week, but three of the seven indicators used in determining local risk are now in the green category, officials said.

Despite the slowdown in vaccinations, Lancaster County is seeing positive trends. The number of COVID-19 cases fell to 247 last week, down from 300 the week before. That was the lowest weekly case total since the third week of August. Lopez said that if that approval comes, the county has “already selected dates” to offer vaccine to children 12-15 years old, a group that numbers about 12,000 people.

Hospital numbers have stayed fairly steady around 30 patients, and there has not been a death related to COVID-19 in Lancaster County since April 19. It’s possible that the Pfizer vaccine could become available to children as young as 12 next week, if the Food and Drug Administration approves it, a move that is widely expected.
