East Longmeadow Update 5/21/2021
We are thrilled to announce East Longmeadow is in the green for risk level for the first time since September 16, 2020! In the last 14 days, East Longmeadow has reported 20 new Covid-19 cases with a percent positivity of 1.85%. Thank you for all who are doing their part to make this a reality by masking, social distancing and getting vaccinated.
Multiple factors play into why Covid-19 cases are dropping, but we can attribute a lot of it thanks to residents getting vaccinated. It is our hope that as more East Longmeadow residents continue to get vaccinated, we'll see an even greater drop in Covid-19 cases. As of today, 28% of 16-19 year old's, 40% of 20-29 year old's, 44% of 30-49 year old's, 58% of 50-64 year old's, 75% of 65-74 year old's, and 65% of 75+ year old's are fully vaccinated against Covid-19. On average, about 45% of East Longmeadow residents are fully vaccinated and hope to follow the Nation's goal of reaching 70% by July 4th.
Vaccines are readily available throughout Massachusetts with over 975 vaccination locations and available to anyone 12 years and older! If you are still in need of a vaccine, you can find a vaccine site nearest to you by visiting https://vaxfinder.mass.gov/, calling 2-1-1. If you have specific needs that make accessing a vaccine challenging for any reason or if you have questions you can call the Health Department at 413-525-5400 x 1103 and we'd be happy to help.
