Delta variant identified in Benton County; Upcoming vaccination clinic at Boys & Girls Club of Corvallis July 25

Wednesday, July 21, 2021

Three cases of the COVID-19 Delta variant have been reported in Benton County. Preliminary information suggests that two of the three Delta variant cases are breakthrough cases, where the infected person is fully vaccinated against COVID-19. 

“COVID-19 vaccines are safe and provide the best protection against the Delta variant, most importantly against hospitalization and death,” said April Holland, deputy director of public health for Benton County. “We encourage individuals to wear masks in indoor and crowded outdoor settings, maintain physical distance from those outside your household, and wash your hands frequently. Unvaccinated people are the most vulnerable to COVID-19, so we urge everyone to get vaccinated if you haven’t already.”

Benton County continues to work with healthcare providers to provide vaccination opportunities for everyone. For more information on upcoming COVID-19 vaccination clinics, please visit: http://bit.ly/BentonCoGov-Vaccination-Clinics
