In the RATE of vaccination, Jackson County is right in the middle of Oregon counties, with about 61% of people 18+ already vaccinated.

But in the NUMBER of people left to vaccinate to get to 80%, the county is right at the bottom. That is the challenge facing health workers and the community itself.

Dr. Jim Shames, Jackson County Medical Director, is back to weekly Q&A sessions, as long as the danger remains high. Ask your question at 800-838-3760 or JX@jeffnet.org.
