FAIRFIELD — Solano County health officials, for the second straight day, announced Friday three more Covid-related deaths, taking the pandemic total to 321.

All three were men. One was a state prisoner at the California Medical Facility in Vacaville. He was 72. The other two, one in his 40s and the other in his 50s, lived at home. None of the men were vaccinated.

The fatalities take the total number of deaths from the most recent surge to 64, 51 of whom were not vaccinated, the county reported. That means about 20.4% of those who have died in the latest surge were vaccinated, which follows the county trend of 21% to 22% since vaccinations started, Dr. Bela Matyas, the public health officer, said in a phone interview.
