Vaccine delays continue, as San Diego County awaits a potential tier shakeup

San Diego has received more than 100,000 coronavirus vaccine doses this week, but shortages at its vaccine sites continued as the county has its eye on moving to the Red Tier. “[Shipments are] consistently erratic and consistently unpredictable. When it arrives, we get it in circulation right away and we utilize it as fast as we possibly can,” said Supervisor Nathan Fletcher. “We still don’t have great clarity on what will be coming more than a day or two in advance and as we’ve seen in the last few weeks even when you’re told something is on its way doesn’t mean it’s actually going to arrive.” The county has yet to receive its first shipment of Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus vaccine that was recently authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The single-dose vaccine is easier to store and administer, which is expected to help speed up the path toward herd immunity although medical experts are studying whether a booster may be necessary for all of the authorized vaccines to keep up with new variants.
