Vaccine Supply Shortages Lead Bay Area Counties to Prioritize Older Adults

As Marin County did late last week, seven other Bay Area jurisdictions issued a joint statement today, highlighting the vaccine supply shortages faced across the region.  For the time being, the scarcity of COVID-19 vaccination doses throughout the Bay Area has led to prioritization of shots for older because of the virus’ high mortality rate within that group. In Marin, Napa, Santa Cruz, and Solano counties, officials are prioritizing residents age 75 and older so those at greatest risk of death will have increased protection.

County health departments and health care partners are coordinating efforts to streamline vaccine distribution and administration, moving as quickly as possible to provide shots as soon as possible after doses arrive from the State of California. The distribution to seniors is in addition to vaccines for Phase 1A-eligible health care workers, many of whom are now expecting their second doses.

“Three out of four COVID-19 deaths in Marin are among residents age 75 or older,” said Dr. Matt Willis, Public Health Officer for Marin County, which has the highest per capita older adult population of any county in California. “A vaccine offered to a resident above age 75 is 300 times more likely to save a life than a vaccine offered to someone under the age of 50.”

Newsom Announces Vaccine Partnership with Biden Administration

Today, Governor Newsom held a press conference in Oakland to announce a new partnership with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) to offer a large-scale vaccine site in Alameda County.  The site will be one of 100 vaccination sites planned across the United States as part the Biden-Harris administration’s effort to establish 100 new vaccine sites in the first 100 days of the administration. As part of the partnership, the federal government will provide 6,000 daily doses per site. See the full news release on CA.gov for more details.

In addition to unveiling plans for the new vaccine site, Newsom discussed additional updates for statewide vaccine distribution, addressed concerns around genomic sequencing, and reviewed the school reopening framework.
