The Laclede County Health Department continues to battle misinformation about the COVID pandemic on a daily basis, even though we’re a year-and-a-half into it. Laclede County Health Department Administrator, Charla Baker, says it’s frustrating. Science has shown the vaccines to be both safe and effective, yet many residents continue to believe numerous lies that are widely shared across social media. Baker says the only way society will return to a pre-pandemic life is through people getting vaccinated………..
Baker says of the 105 Laclede County residents who have died from the COVID virus, not one of those deaths was in someone who was fully vaccinated.
