SPOKANE COUNTY — Fewer residents in southern Spokane County are getting vaccinated against the coronavirus than their neighbors further north.
According to the tentative figures released by Spokane Regional Health District this week, only about a third of Cheney, Medical Lake and Spangle residents older than 16 have started a vaccine regimen.
And fewer than that are seeking vaccinations in Airway Heights, Latah and Fairfield.
At least two of the available coronavirus vaccines require two shots.
The lowest vaccination rates, so far, in southern Spokane County are in Fairfield and Latah.
