62% of city residents have received at least one Covid-19 vaccine dose, while 43% are fully vaccinated, according to data released today by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
Below is a look at weekly vaccination rates starting in early March. For this graph, the rising rates are good news!
Update: Framingham’s rate of known new Covid-19 cases dropped again this week, also according to data released yesterday by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
There were an average of 10.9 known cases per 100,000 population in the city over the last 14 days. That’s the lowest it’s been since early September.
Test positivity was 1.57%, a record low since at least July 2020 (when I started tracking this data).
Total number of cases in the most recent 14-day period dropped 27%. Number of tests, meanwhile, dipped only 6%.
While the city remains in the Baker administration’s yellow zone, it didn’t miss the green zone by much: lower than 10.0 (vs the current 10.9) would put Framingham in the green zone.
The city is in the CDC’s orange “substantial transmission” zone. A rate of 7.0 would move Framingham into the CDC’s moderate transmission category.
