More than 2 million San Diegoans are now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, bringing the region closer to achieving its vaccination goal.
The district reached the milestone over the weekend; by August 3, a total of 2,015,700 or 71.9% of residents over the age of 12 had received two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or a single dose of the Johnson onson vaccine.
“Great job, San Diegan.” said Wilma J. Wooten, MD, MPH, County Public Health Officer. “The more people are vaccinated, the closer we will be to achieving our vaccination goal.”
The district aims to vaccinate 75% of the 2.8 million people eligible for the vaccine, which is 2,101,936 people. To achieve that goal, we need about 86,000 more San Diego, which is five percentage points higher than the national goals.
“We are confident that we will achieve this goal,” said Wutten, adding that there are more than 284,000 San Diego vaccinated. “Nevertheless, we must continue if we are to prevent the spread of COVID-19, move the economy forward, and return to our pre-epidemic lifestyle.”
There are many COVID-19 vaccines in the region. You can find it at doctor’s offices, retail pharmacies, community clinics, and district websites for people who do not have a health care provider. For a list of locations այցել For more information, visit: www.coronavirus-sd.com/vaccine:,
