This is so out of whack that I question whether I’m reading or interpreting this correctly. According to this page (on which you will still have to use drop down menus to find specifics) Barnstable, Dukes, and Nantucket Counties have less than 10% of their residents vaccinated against COVID-19 even among the 65+ crowd while all other counties are above 50%, some by quite a bit. No wonder Provincetown became such a hot spot! Here I was blaming the vacationers from states that maybe have not prioritized vaccinations, but this chart does use the word “residents”. Seems DPH needs to launch a full court press maybe by setting up mobile vaccine sites offering it to residents and vacationers alike, preferably J&J for vacationers since you only need to get that one once. Unbelievably there are parts of the country so hostile to vaccines that some are showing up in disguise and begging that nobody be told they got the shot for fear of their community’s reaction. Maybe there are more such people who would be willing to get their shots while they are away from home. What are we coming too? Even if you are reluctant for whatever reason, why in the world would you care if your neighbor got the vaccine?
