80K COVID-19 vaccine doses arriving in region


Nearly 80,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses shipped to San Diego County have begun arriving in the region, allowing for the rescheduling of all missed second doses and the widespread resumption of first dose appointments.

The vaccines represent the doses expected this week and those delayed last week by severe winter storms elsewhere in the United States.

To date, over 828,000 COVID-19 doses have been delivered to the region with nearly 752,000 administered. The difference between the two numbers represents approximately what is expected to be administered the next seven days and doses still to be entered in the record system.

Those vaccinated to date include nearly 185,000 San Diegans who are fully vaccinated, while 19.1% of the population over age 16 has received at least one dose.
