Four men from Clallam County lost their lives due to COVID-19 complications. Their deaths raised the number of deceased in the area to sixty-four and that of the North Olympic Peninsula to eight-one.
Two men, one in his sixties and another in his eighties, had not gotten vaccinated. The other two were vaccinated but had underlying medical problems. One was in his seventies and the other one in his nineties.
The breakdown of the deaths highlights two essential things:
- Unvaccinated people are in danger.
- Older people are more at risk even if they are fully vaccinated.
To ensure everyone remains safe, every person should get vaccinated.
The COVID-19 vaccine cannot keep older adults safe on its own. Other people need to do their part to lower the risk of infecting them. There is more information online in articles written by some of the best essay writer and even bloggers on how to ensure safety.
One of the men that died was a care facility resident. He was looking after infected patients, and five of them have passed on up to now.
Another care facility in the county is getting investigated. Four cases have gotten confirmed so far.
In Jefferson County, there were no new deaths. However, since the COVID-19 pandemic began, there have been seventeen deaths.

The people in charge of COVID-19 vaccines recommended Pfizer for children between five and eleven years. But, first, the director of the body has to sign off. Then, the Western region advisory team must also approve it before being administered in the Washington area.
The children’s vaccine approval will get announced later, and the clinics will commence.
