COVID-19 cases continue decline in county
Weekly cases of COVID-19 are on the decline in Madison County.
According to Wednesday’s MSDH report 64,376 vaccinations were administered in Madison County on the past week.
COVID-19 vaccinations are up 7,155 from last week’s 57,513 total.
The MSDH vaccination report does not distinguish the county of residence of the people receiving the vaccines so all of those vaccines may not have been administered to people who are residents of Madison County.
Vaccines are currently available for all Mississippians age 16 and older and are available at the Walmart locations in Canton and Madison. Go to https://msdh.ms.gov/c19appointment#local to check availability.
Vaccinations also are currently being administered by appointment in Madison County at Canton High School, 634 Finney Road in Canton on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Sign up online at covidvaccine.umc.edu or call 1-877-978-6453. The website is the best option, officials have said.
Madison County has recorded 9,816 COVID-19 cases, up 59 cases from 9,757 in last week’s report, and 208 COVID-19 deaths, up one from last week’s report, since the pandemic began last March, according to MSDH statistics released Wednesday.
The MSDH on Monday issued updated guidance on safer faith-based gatherings and worship services.
