FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky reported 1,626 COVID-19 cases and a decreased positivity rate of 6.25% Friday, Gov. Andy Beshear announced in a social media post.
Pfizer says kid-size doses of its COVID-19 vaccine are safe and nearly 91% effective at preventing symptomatic infections in elementary school children.
"Our data clearly shows that vaccinations are making a difference and decreasing viral activity in Missouri. We are on the right track, and thanks to now three million Missourians, we are significantly reducing the threat COVID-19 poses to our state."
There's been an error in the number of vaccinations reported to the federal reporting system. That means state and local numbers were affected as well.
