The recent studies in California show that it has reached its milestone in the five-month-long vaccination campaign. The Los Angeles Times analysis study claims that more than 50 percent of the Californian citizens have received their at least the single dose of the Covid-19 vaccination.
Currently, the 19.6 million of residents in California have received their at least one injection. Overall, the 38 percent of Californian masses have been fully vaccinated. Thus, this clarifies that they have received either both shots of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
The vaccination pace in California has rather improved since the first dose in the state was regulated exactly five months ago. This management was done in the arm of Helen Cordova. Helen is an ICU nurse at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center on Sunset Boulevard.
At the beginning of February, seven weeks into the vaccination push, around the 150,000 vaccine doses were being administered every day. Thus, with the early April, the state had hit its fastest pace of vaccine administration. This is an average of 400,000 doses a day.
However, since then, there has been a decrease in the pace of vaccinations to roughly 250,000 doses per day. So, in order to get more citizens vaccinated, the officials in few of the parts of the state have initiated to roll down the mass vaccination sites.
Thus, devoting more resources to mobile and pop-up clinics that can offer easier access to the vaccine in some of the hardest-hit of the state surroundings. Further, the health officers are expecting that the rates of the vaccination will not continue to fall out top early.
So, they announced this week that adolescents age 12 to 15 are now eligible for the Pfizer vaccine. They hope that could also spark renewed interest among older family members who remain unvaccinated.
