On Sunday, 11 September 2022, the Health Services Authority confirmed one COVID-19 related death. The individual had severe comorbidities and had received only two doses of the vaccination (no booster).
The Ministry of Health and Wellness would like to extend condolences to the family.
As announced in late August, COVID-19 reports to the public will be limited to hospitalisations and deaths. Any notable increases in hospitalisations, as well as any new deaths, will be announced to the public immediately.
Interim Chief Medical Officer, Dr Autilia Newton, reminds the general public of the importance of getting boosted, especially for those in our community who are vulnerable and immunocompromised. “The COVID-19 booster improves protection against severe infection for all age groups, and research has shown it helps keep people out of the hospital,” Dr Newton stated.
The COVID-19 vaccination and booster schedule for the month of September is available on https://www.hsa.ky/public-health/coronavirus/.
