Cur­rent coro­n­avirus infor­ma­tion in Soite’s area on Decem­ber 13th 2021.

The cur­rent sit­u­a­tion of infection

The num­ber of coro­n­avirus infec­tions has once more begun to increase in the Soite area. Dur­ing last week (week 49), a total of 26 new coro­n­avirus infec­tions were con­firmed in the Soite area. Last week, 1,060 coro­n­avirus sam­ples were tak­en. The per­cent­age of pos­i­tive sam­ples was 2.1 %, i.e. the num­ber of pos­i­tive sam­ples has once more begun to increase. The major­i­ty of infec­tions were con­firmed in unvac­ci­nat­ed per­sons or in per­sons who have not received a com­plete series of vac­ci­na­tions. Only 31% of infec­tions were con­firmed in per­sons already in quar­an­tine. 65 per­cent of the infec­tions have been traced.

Five COVID-19 patients are cur­rent­ly being treat­ed at Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia cen­tral hos­pi­tal, and two of these patients are being treat­ed at the inten­sive care unit. The need for hos­pi­tal care has also increased com­pared to last week.

The most impor­tant part is to fol­low the coro­n­avirus hygiene rec­om­men­da­tions and seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing if you are still com­plete­ly unvac­ci­nat­ed or have not yet had your boost­er vac­ci­na­tion dos­es. Cur­rent rec­om­men­da­tions regard­ing the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic with­in Soite’s area are list­ed on Soite’s coro­na web­site: https://korona.soite.fi/en/recommendations/

Espe­cial­ly those who are unvac­ci­nat­ed should seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing imme­di­ate­ly even if they only have very mild symp­toms indica­tive of coro­n­avirus. The coro­n­avirus test result should be await­ed at home and in quar­an­tine so as not to poten­tial­ly expose oth­ers to the coro­n­avirus, for exam­ple in the workplace.

Vac­ci­na­tions

Coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions are pro­gress­ing with­in Soite’s area. Coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions are now pro­gress­ing with regards to all per­sons over the age of 12 who live in Soite’s area. Res­i­dents are now espe­cial­ly active in get­ting the third dose.

As the Christ­mas sea­son approach­es, more peo­ple will be vis­it­ing their rel­a­tives and friends, and thus it is impor­tant to ensure that your vac­cine pro­tec­tion is in order. The third vac­cine dose is impor­tant espe­cial­ly for per­sons aged 60 and old­er and for per­sons who belong to a med­ical risk group, and we encour­age those who belong to these groups to get a third vac­cine dose as soon as pos­si­ble 5 to 6 months after the sec­ond dose. We also encour­age you to get the sec­ond vac­cine dose as soon as pos­si­ble if you have not yet received it.

Nat­u­ral­ly, first dos­es of the vac­cine are also still being dis­trib­uted and we encour­age you to seek out coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tion if you are com­plete­ly unvac­ci­nat­ed. The coro­n­avirus is not going away and it will be very dif­fi­cult to avoid the dis­ease in the future. It is sig­nif­i­cant­ly safer to encounter the coro­n­avirus if you are vaccinated. 

Soite’s coro­na vac­ci­na­tion indi­ca­tor has been updat­ed! In total, 89 per­cent of the cit­i­zens in the Soite area over the age of 12 have now received their first vac­cine dose. 84.7 per­cent of per­sons over the age of 12 in the area have received their sec­ond vac­ci­na­tion dose. Vac­ci­na­tions with the third dos­es are under way and so far, 15.7 per­cent of the per­sons over the age of 12 have received a third dose.

Vac­ci­na­tions are giv­en main­ly dur­ing walk-in vac­ci­na­tion days with­out appoint­ment book­ing, which means you can come to a coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tion when it suits you best. First, sec­ond and third dos­es will be admin­is­tered dur­ing the walk-in-days. At a walk-in vac­ci­na­tion, it is pos­si­ble to arrange for the sec­ond dose to be giv­en ear­li­er than planned, if at least six weeks have passed since the first vaccination.

The aim is to fur­ther increase vac­ci­na­tion cov­er­age in the Soite area by bring­ing vac­ci­na­tions clos­er to the pub­lic and mak­ing them more eas­i­ly avail­able. Soite will be offer­ing vac­ci­na­tions at Chy­de­nia shop­ping cen­tre in Kokko­la on Fri­day 17th of Decem­ber from 4 pm to 8 pm.
