State data from Tuesday showed that 8.6 million Floridians had at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine (other reports say 1 in 5 of your neighbors won’t get one). Locally, the Bay area added 1,135 cades and five deaths on Tuesday—with Pinellas and Hillsborough reported zero deaths. Still, local positivity rates (9% in Hillsborough, 6% in Pinellas) are above recommendations from the World Health Organization.
