Adair County Vaccine Estimates

The number of Adair County residents fully vaccinated against COVID-19 continues to grow as efforts by the Adair County Health Department and other local healthcare providers continue. In addition to the Health Department, Northeast Regional Medical Center, Northeast Missouri Health Council, Complete Family Medicine, Hy-Vee, Walmart and Walgreen’s have administered vaccine doses, and some will continue to do so as they receive vaccine supplies. Nearly 1,700 second doses of the Moderna vaccine were administered March 25 at The
Crossing in Kirksville. Those residents will have the maximum benefit of the vaccine as of April 8. The maximum benefit occurs two weeks after receiving the second dose of either the Pfizer- BioNTech or Moderna vaccine or two weeks after receiving the sole dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The Health Department estimates that by April 16, more than 7,000 county residents who
received vaccines in Adair County will be fully vaccinated, or approximately 23% of the population, including students attending local higher education institutions. An estimated 14% of the U.S. population has been fully vaccinated.
