Local News

COFFEE COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — At Monday’s Coffee County Commission meeting, EMA Director James Brown said this would be his last COVID-19 report for the foreseeable future.

On a daily basis, Coffee County COVID-19 numbers have continued to decline.

In Alabama, there are less than hospitalized 300 COVID patients.

In Coffee County, Brown says more than 10,700 residents have been vaccinated.

That’s around 20-percent of the population.

Brown would like to see those numbers approach 50-percent.

That’s around the number who annually get vaccinated for the flu.

“Part of the population just became eligible this past Monday,” Brown said. “Now we’re waiting for those people to get in line and get their vaccine. Now that it is available in more places we hope they will go out and get the vaccine.”

Brown says state health officials have told him the three different vaccines have successfully prevented COVID variants.
