JAMESTOWN – Health officials are warning residents about the possibility of a COVID-19 resurgence, as vaccinations rates stumble both nationally and locally.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says just over 163-million people, 49 percent, are fully vaccinated nationwide. Here in Chautauqua County, 49.5 percent of the county’s total population are vaccinated.








That’s 63,000 residents who have had at least one dose of the shot.

Statewide, more than 62 percent of people are vaccinated.









Twenty states have at least 50-percent of their respective populations fully vaccinated.

Eleven states have yet to reach the 40-percent mark. They include: Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma and Wyoming.















There’s been a bipartisan push to convince Americans to get the COVID-19 shot.

All fifty states in the U.S. saw more week-to-week confirmed COVID-19 cases compared to the seven-days prior, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

  1. If the government was so worried about a resurgence, our borders would NOT be wide open.

    Bill Melugin, reported on Sunday that the US border partol apprehended over 20,000 illegal aliens at the Del Rio Crossing in Texas in just one week.

    That is enough people to fill up the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

    All of these individuals were released inside the US mainland. They were transported across the country and are given money and benefits after they cross into the United States.

    They are NOT vaccinating these people…
