Next COVID-19 vaccine phase rollout could come in weeks

Original post made on Jan 8, 2021

California's Community Vaccine Advisory Committee is preparing to outline who will receive COVID-19 vaccine doses in the next phase of distribution and how to make sure they are administered equitably.

At this point, all of the first responders and health care workers have received at least their first dose. Now it's time for the broader population to receive it. Since it's most fatal to the oldest people, it makes sense to make it available to oldest people first. However, it would also make sense to have some portion of the vaccines available through a simple lottery. Whatever is done needs to be done quickly and without bureaucratic red-tape.

Dan-- According to the mercury news not even close .

"However, just over three weeks since administering the first dose of the vaccine, fewer than a third of the health care workers in the first phase have been vaccinated, according to the county."

Not unexpected given that Cody is in charge

dan, i was reading about folks like dentists, physical therapists and folks like me, working in small business in support of healthcare. we are a segment that may have a tendency to fall thru the cracks, even though we are in close contact with our clients, who are the most vulnerable. we may totally miss the immunizations if we aren't pro active enough to make some calls and send notes to city, county, state federal contacts we may have.
i do agree, however, that, as you said, "Whatever is done needs to be done quickly and without bureaucratic red-tape."

The headline of the article i poste dabove says:
"Coronavirus: Santa Clara County boosts vaccine effort amid slow rollout"

But, in the article Cody says:
"Overall, the initial rollout has been “encouraging,” she said, and the county was “thrilled with the partnership of all the health care systems to stand up vaccinations.”"
"“I’m not a logistics person but even I can appreciate how complex this is,” Cody said."

Maybe part of the problem is Cody-- shouldnt county health get someone that knows something to make sure the vaccine rollout moves quickly.
I hope this is not another example of Cody sidestepping state guidelines
