San Diego County public health officials reported 111 new COVID-19 infections and one more death Thursday.

That brought the cumulative case total during the pandemic to 281,051, and the death toll to 3,766.

Officials reported a total of 10,743 tests Thursday, with 1% returning positive. The 14-day rolling average of positive cases remained at 0.8%.

Those in need of hospital care dropped to 81. Those requiring intensive care fell to 18, less than half the number from two weeks ago.

The county reported no new community outbreaks Thursday. That brings the total number in the last seven days to four outbreaks linked to 19 cases.

As of Thursday, more than 2.09 million local residents have received one dose of the vaccines that call for two shots. That’s 99.5% of the county’s 2.1 million goal population.

Meanwhile, the county touted two upcoming vaccination clinics at Petco Park.

On Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., everyone who gets vaccinated at the park’s Gallagher Square will receive a free pair of tickets for a future San Diego Padres game and a “Padres Hero” T-shirt, while supplies last.

The clinics will offer the single dose Janssen vaccine, and limited quantities of the two-dose Pfizer shot.

Officials will host a second event at Petco from 1:30 to 8 p.m on June 26.
