The number of tests performed in the state has reached 1,197,763, an increase of 4,019 during the previous 24-hour reporting period.

Out of the 1.2 million people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in Washington, epidemiologists have reported evidence of 102 breakthrough cases in 18 counties since February 1, representing less than 0.01% of all fully vaccinated individuals in the northwestern US state.

The county has averaged about eight new cases per day over the last 14 days, according to a 14-day moving average graph updated weekdays by the health department.

"The risk for all of us is too great, which means any of our usual travel and holiday weekend gatherings need to be put on hold this year", they say.

"Help us to push our curve back down again".

Laramie County has the highest confirmed active case count in the state with 71 confirmed active cases, according to the WDH. Do this by staying small, staying outside and staying with your same group of close contacts.

Now 301 people have been hospitalized with COVID-19 with 63 of those in intensive care. "There are three important things to remember about the COVID-19 vaccines".

Officials have now recorded 3,324 cases of COVID-19 in the island region since the pandemic began.

AstraZeneca doses were initially meant to go to frontline workers, leaving the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech supplies for the province's age-based immunization schedule, but those plans were put on hold over concerns about rare cases of blood clotting in people below the age of 55 who received the AstraZeneca vaccine.

".Everyone will have access to a safe and effective vaccine, and that remains on track to happen before Canada Day", said Dix and Henry. More than 27% have received at least one dose of the vaccines that require two shots, by Pfizer and Moderna.

Health officials are reminding British Columbians to avoid all non-essential travel and to follow health guidelines.

Across the province, another 871 COVID-19 cases were diagnosed overnight, with 13,739 tests completed for a positivity rate of 6.3 per cent.

Because of safety considerations for those under 55, B.C.is now waiting on Health Canada's recommendation before resuming vaccination of front-line workers who were to receive the AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccine, according to Henry and Dix.
