San Diego, CA–Starting April 15, everyone ages 16 and older will be able to get vaccinated against COVID-19, the County Public Health said.
“Every San Diegan who qualifies for the vaccine can now get vaccinated,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “The vaccine is the best protection we have against COVID-19. Get your shot as soon as you can.”
Currently, only the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are available in the region. Use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine has been paused while it is reviewed following recent safety concerns.
Almost 2.28 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been delivered to the region, and about 2.16 million have been logged as administered. This number includes both county residents and those who work in San Diego county.
Of those vaccinated to date, more than 757,000 county residents, or 28.2% of San Diegans 16 and older, are fully immunized.
Overall, nearly 1.22 million county residents have received at least one shot of the two-dose vaccine. That’s 45.2% of those eligible.
The goal is to fully vaccinate 75% of San Diego County residents 16 and older or 2,017,011 people.
Those who received the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which is currently on hold in the County due to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Food and Drug Administration, are being added to the total of fully vaccinated San Diegans.
