“With the more contagious delta variant, choosing to receive the COVID-19 vaccine is an action one can take to stop the further spread here in our communities,” Outagamie County health officer Natalie Vandeveld said in the release.

About 48% of residents living in the eight counties in and around the Fox Valley have gotten at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to data from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. Forty-six percent have completed the vaccine series.
