COVID-19 hospitalizations

St. Charles on Monday reported it had 18 COVID patients; one is in the ICU and on a ventilator.

Of those 18 patients, five are fully vaccinated. 

The number represents those with “active COVID” upon admission and require special isolation or treatment. It does not include patients who are there for other reasons and also happen to test positive for COVID.

**A person is considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 ≥ two weeks after receipt of the second dose in a 2-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) or ≥ two weeks after receipt of the single dose of the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine.**
