George thanked every ‘Fort Bender’ who did their part and got at least one of the shots by the 4th of July.
“We have reached (and surpassed) the Federal Government’s aspirational goal of 70% of adults with at least one vaccine dose by July 4,” the post read.
At the end of June, Galveston County officials said their area was also nearing a notable threshold in the pursuit of herd immunity.
According to an analysis of data, about 44% of Galveston County’s total population were fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at that time.
