Leaders in Santa Clara County Concerned by Reduced Demand for COVID-19 Vaccine, Urge the Public to Continue Getting Vaccinated

Santa Clara County, CA – While more than two-thirds of Santa Clara County residents over the age of 16 have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, leaders are concerned with a recent reduction in demand for vaccination and urge the public to continue getting vaccinated to save lives, prevent the spread of dangerous variants, and help the community emerge from the pandemic. In particular, the County urges youth and young adults to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Young adults ages 18-29 make up the highest number of unvaccinated individuals in the county, and although case rates are flattening or decreasing, young adults ages 18-34 have the highest rate of COVID infection of any age group.
