Cincinnati region passes 1 million people fully vaccinated

The region has now surpassed 1 million people fully inoculated against the novel coronavirus. That translates to 46.1% of the region's more than 2.2 million residents.

The news comes as the number of new COVID-19 cases in the region appears to have plateaued at a high level. The region's hospitals remain under strain, with 96% of normally staffed intensive care unit beds in use, the Health Collaborative reported Monday morning. One of every 3 ICU patients has COVID-19.

Vaccination rates have risen faster in the last two weeks in 14 of the region's 16 counties than they did the previous month, an Enquirer analysis of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data shows. Campbell and Dearborn counties could see double-digit increases in their vaccination rates for the month if the trend continues. Only Butler and Warren counties aren't seeing faster increases in inoculations.
