charleston, – The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) reported as of Wednesday there were five Covid-19-related deaths since last week’s dashboard update, with a total of 8,136 deaths statewide.

DHHR has confirmed the deaths of a 69-year-old male from Ohio County, a 64-year-old female from Harrison County, a 74-year-old male from Monongalia County, an 81-year-old female from Lincoln County, and a 77-year-old female from Raleigh 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.
