The city is looking to open up eligibility for a COVID-19 vaccine to everyone over 16 very soon, possibly earlier than the April 15 deadline set by the state, he said.
Long Beach received 4,100 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which only requires one shot to be administered.
According to LBUSD spokesperson Chris Eftychiou, the district has so far offered more than 6,200 appointments for vaccines to its employees.
¿Quién asume la responsabilidad de vacunar a los detenidos? “No lo sé”, dijo el cirujano general de California. Frente a tal confusión, algunos funcionarios del condado están enviando dosis a los centros de detención de inmigrantes, mientras que otros esperan orientación estatal.
MemorialCare hospital in Long Beach canceled their COVID-19 vaccine appointments today and this weekend for first-dose injections due to severe winter storms around the country that delayed shipments.
As of Thursday, city health officials were confident they had enough vaccine supply to last two more days, but they are still not sure what the effects of the inclement weather will be for the city’s supply line next week.
