Summary

“Vaccinating workers in nursing homes is a national emergency because the delta variant is a threat even to those already vaccinated,” he said.The CDC conducted its investigation of delta variant outbreaks in elder care facilities in Mesa County, Colorado, in May and June. The slide was shared with the AP by a person involved in internal deliberations, who requested anonymity because they did not have permission to release the data.Of the 16 fully vaccinated residents infected at the memory care facility, CDC found that 13 developed symptoms, described as mild in most cases.The CDC investigated several nursing homes in Mesa County that were experiencing new outbreaks. As of the week ending July 4, there were 410 residents sickened nationwide and 146 who died.Colorado is not alone in seeing nursing home outbreaks as large shares of staff remain unvaccinated.In Indiana, seven residents died from COVID-19 at a facility where less than half the staff — 44% — was fully vaccinated, said Howard County health officer Dr. Emily Backer.
