The Springfield-Greene County Health Department made the change as of Tuesday.

The vaccination rate on the Springfield-Greene County Health Department’s COVID-19 Dashboard is lower now. That’s because children five to 11 have been approved for the vaccine, and the health department is including them in the vaccination rate.

With five to 11-year-olds added in, the percentage of Greene County residents who have had a COVID-19 vaccine was 48.36 on Wednesday.
