People who live in rural areas have an increased risk of hospitalization and death from Covid-19, yet as of April, the vaccination rate in rural areas lagged behind cities -- and that could hinder the end of the pandemic, according to a new report from the CDC. As of Monday, about 60% of people 18 and older have had at least one Covid-19 vaccine … Through April 10 of this year, vaccination coverage was nearly 39% in rural counties, compared to more than 46% in urban counties, according to the CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, published Tuesday.
