BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Since Friday, COVID-19 has killed six more people in Vermont, bringing the total to 310.

The CDC data tracker shows all of the state’s counties are experiencing a high virus transmission rate.

Monday, the state reported 197 new COVID cases, with 36 people hospitalized, seven of them in the ICU.

Now, data from the Vermont Health Department shows this month, which isn’t over yet, sets a new record for COVID cases.

Meanwhile, the next group of Vermonters can sign up for a Pfizer booster shot Monday.

People 75 and older who got the Pfizer vaccine can now register for an appointment. Currently, the shot is available for Vermonters 80 and older.

You’re eligible as long as it has been six months since your second Pfizer shot.

The state is awaiting guidance from the CDC on what occupational or institutional settings at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure should be eligible for booster shots. We expect more information on that early this week.
