The share of Natick’s population fully vaccinated against COVID-19 has jumped from 34% to 39% over the past week, according to weekly data released by the state.
Natick has just over 14,000 residents fully vaccinated, and the state has exceeded 2.4 million fully vaccinated against the disease.
Natick now boasts 62% of its population with at least 1 dose, up from 56% a week ago. The percentage of those vaccinated in the 65-74 and 75-plus age groups is 87% and 86%, respectively. Nearly half of those in the 50-64 age bracket are now fully vaxxed.
Natick’s Health Department is now out of the COVID-19 vaccine game, though the Natick Mall has been busy doling out vaccines as one of the state’s mass vaccination sites.
Natick’s daily COVID-19 case incidence rate per 100,000 people has been hovering in the low 20s for weeks. Natick Public Schools and the Health Department are requiring students taking part in extracurricular activities, including sports, to participate in pooled COVID-19 testing (memo embedded below).
