BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — If schools shut down, if businesses close, if friends or family members get sick or die, you can thank roughly half of Palm Beach County.

Data released by the CDC shows that only 58 percent of Palm Beach County’s population eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine is fully vaccinated.

Specifically, just 58 percent of residents twelve years old or older in Palm Beach County are what the CDC calls “fully vaccinated.” That’s two shots of Pfizer or Moderna, or one shot of Johnson and Johnson.

The news is slightly better for those who started the vaccination process. The CDC says 67.6 percent of Palm Beach County residents age 12 or older have received “at least one dose.”

For Palm Beach County residents 18 or older, the numbers are a bit higher. 60.4 percent of Palm Beach County residents 18 and up are fully vaccinated. 69.8 percent have received at least one dose.

Residents 65 and older lead the county for vaccinations. 79.4 percent of those 65 and up are fully vaccinated. 89.1 percent have received at least one dose.

In total, 760,706 Palm Beach County residents are fully vaccinated. 887,004 have received at least one dose.
