Most COVID cases not fully vaccinated


Data gathered from Wyoming residents who have tested positive for COVID-19 in recent months illustrates the success of the safe, free, and effective vaccines.

According to the Wyoming Department of Health, almost 95% of the more than 2,400 lab-confirmed and probable cases identified among Wyoming residents age 16 and older between May 1 and June 15 shows involved individuals who were not fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

During the same period, more than 93% of the nearly 150 persons who were hospitalized for COVID-19 at the time they were interviewed were not fully vaccinated.

To date, there has been one COVID-19 related death of a fully vaccinated Wyoming resident overall. Vaccines have been widely available for adults across the state since late March and are available with no appointment necessary.

A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after two doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or two weeks after one dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.
