Through Science to Health ~ 4/23/21

Dr. Joseph Mattern, JHC Chief Medical Officer and in charge of JHC Covid-19 vaccination program, joined KPTZ’s Chris Bricker and Lynn Sorensen, RN, today for this week’s Through Science to Health.

Dr. Mattern discussed the current rise in numbers of cases and the added infectious rate of the viral variants in Washington well as other states. Jefferson County has seen more cases in April than we had in March. Lynn brought up the term ‘fully immunized’ as a misnomer because this may confuse the fully vaccinated to think they have 100% protection from the novel coronavirus.

The pandemic is not under control and has not finished with us, as much as we all want it to be.
