BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont Health Department was waiting to learn Monday how many people were vaccinated against COVID-19 at two racetracks over the weekend.
Last week, the state announced that vaccination clinics were going to be held before the races Saturday at the Bear Ridge Speedway in Bradford and the Devils Bowl Speedway in West Haven.
Those clinics were among a number of clinics held over the weekend at locations across the state that are designed to get more people vaccinated against COVID-19.
On Monday, the health department reported that about 67.3% of Vermonters over age 16 have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccination and just over 48% of the population is fully vaccinated.
On Monday, the Health Department reported 33 new cases of the virus that causes COVID-19, bringing the statewide total since pandemic began to nearly 23,550.
There were 11 people hospitalized with COVID-19, including two in intensive care.
The number of deaths from COVID-19 remained at 249.
The Associated Press is using data collected by Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering to measure outbreak caseloads and deaths across the United States.
The seven-day rolling average of daily new cases in Vermont did not increase over the past two weeks, going from 80 new cases a day on April 24 to 51.43 new cases a day May 8.
The seven-day rolling average of daily deaths in Vermont did not increase over the past two weeks, going from 0.29 deaths a day on April 24 to 0.29 deaths a day May 8.
