Allen County’s COVID ranking — based on vaccination rates, cases numbers and tests —  is improving slowly, as shots become available for children, cases rise and a new variant is causing concern across the world.

The county has improved to 78th out of 105 counties, up from a ranking of 80th a few weeks ago, and 90th before that.

More than half of the county, though, remains unvaccinated.
