Madison County COVID cases still on the decline

Posted

As vaccinations in Madison County continue to rise, COVID-19 cases continue to decline throughout the county. 

According to Tuesday’s Mississippi State Department of Health report, 69,482 people have been vaccinated in Madison County, up 5,106 from last week’s 64,376 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.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March 2020, Madison County has recorded 9,864 COVID-19 cases, up 48 cases from 9,816 in last week’s report, and 209 COVID-19 deaths, up one from last week’s report.

Madison County Schools have reported between one and five cases among teachers and staff for the week of March 29 to April 2, with those cases coming from Madison-Ridgeland Academy where one teacher and two students have needed to quarantine during that period.  

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.
