According to the latest data posted by the state, 37.6% of Butler Countians, or 144,229, have started their vaccinations. That’s lower than the statewide percentage of nearly 41% ; Warren County’s 44.6% ; and Hamilton County’s 42.1% .
“I think it’s a great deal for the community,” said Tiffany Grubb of the Greater Hamilton Chamber of Commerce and chairwoman of the Flea board. “We’ve heard several people say they can’t always make the times during the week when the vaccination clinics open, so it’s great the city of Hamilton and Butler County are opening that up on a Saturday.”
Butler County so far has had more than 38,270 cases of the novel coronavirus, with 1,390 people hospitalized and 580 killed by it.
For the Flea, “I think it’s going to be another great year,” Grubb said. “We’ll have Yoga in the Park beginning at 9 a.m. We’ll have a DJ there, we’ll also be selling Municipal Brew Works there as usual, and we have a full list of vendors,” as well as food trucks.
