KOIN, Oregon — Public health leaders and city council members in Clark County held a COVID-19 briefing Wednesday morning, stating that false information about the virus was life-threatening.

Dr. Alan Merrick refuted several false claims about immunity to vaccines and viruses during the briefing.

“When we reach the point of vaccination, if we reach there to vaccinate 100% of the population, virtually every case will be a breakthrough in vaccines,” Melnick said. I am. “But here we have to think about the numerator and denominator. Comparing the number of cases and deaths with and without vaccination, the vaccine still wins … this is very much for the general public to understand this. It is important.”

Some county board members said it was a pity that public comments were left to threaten the county health director.
