But now it seems not only are the kids there 96% vaccinated but parents too…call it irony?
EAST GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The East Grand Rapids school district now has one of the highest vaccination rates in the state, according to data collected by the Kent County Health Department.
“It’s enormous and I have not heard of any area in the state that has a higher rate,” Administrative Health Officer Adam London said.
According to the county, 95% of people age 12 to 17 in East Grand Rapids are vaccinated and 96% of people over 16 in the district have gotten their shots.
“East Grand Rapids, Ada Township, Cascade, some areas in the suburbs and around Grand Rapids are doing really well. The vaccine coverage rates are in excess of 80%, even 90%,” London said.
“I credit that to the access to information and to clinics and the vaccine, along with the support of local leaders in those communities who are echoing the messages that we’ve been sharing about the severity of COVID, the importance and effectiveness of the vaccine and how important it is to protect our community.”
As a result, students at East Grand Rapids schools will be allowed to go without masks this fall.
