Perry Co. is among the 7 counties in the Commonwealth that has only seen 10% or less of its population vaccinated against the cornavirus. The prevailing reason is due to the significant rural populations. According to TheKeystone.com, officials in the state health department didn’t have an answer for why these counties have fallen behind, but did bring up vaccine hesitancy. State Health Dept. spokesperson, Maggi Barton, said that officials are “working on public information campaigns to address that hesitancy”. Perry Co., with its population of a little more than 46,000, only has 8.8% of its residents vaccinated against COVID-19. The other 6 counties lagging behind are Beaver, Bedford, Fulton, Monroe, Pike, & Potter.
