COVID-19 Weekly Update 6-21-2023


​​​​The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) reports as of June 21, 2023, there have been six deaths reported since last week’s dashboard update, with a total of 8,155 deaths attributed to COVID-19. 

DHHR has confirmed the deaths of a 90-year old male from Berkeley County, a 92-year old male from Upshur County, an 85-year old male from Ohio County, an 81-year old male from Lincoln County, an 82-year old female from Tyler County, and an 82-year old male from Marshall County.

West Virginians ages 6 months and older are recommended to stay up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccination. At this time, to stay up-to-date, one Omicron (bivalent) COVID-19 shot is recommended for most people ages 6 years and older. Those ages 6 months through 5 years of age have more specific recommendations. Those ages 65 years and older and those who are moderately to severely immunocompromised are also eligible for at least one additional Omicron COVID-19 shot for updated protection. 

Visit the WV COVID-19 Vaccination Due Date Calculator, a free, online tool that helps individuals figure out when they may be due for a COVID-19 shot, making it easier to stay up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccination.
