County Surpasses 1 Million COVID-19 Vaccinations – countynewscenter.com

The following sites will be paused through Monday: the Lemon Grove Community Center, the Central Region Immunization Clinic in Logan Heights, the Copley-Price YMCA in City Heights, the Martin Luther King Community Center in National City, the Border View YMCA in Otay Mesa and the Linda Rhoades Recreation Center in Vista. The screening positivity percentage is 4.2%, placing the County in Tier 3 or the Orange Tier. While the testing positivity rate for the County qualifies it for Tier 3, the state utilizes the most restrictive metric– in this case the adjusted case rate– and assigns counties to that tier. The County stays in the Purple Tier or Tier 1.

More than a million dosages of the COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in the area, the County Health and Human Services Agency reported today.
Of those immunized to date, more than 319,000, or almost 12 percent of San Diegans 16 and older, are fully inoculated. An overall of 619,924 individuals, or 23.1 percent, have actually gotten at least one dosage of the two-dose program.
” We are making terrific development in immunizing San Diegans but it is too soon to let our guard down,” said Wilma J. Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “Herd resistance does not occur till a minimum of 70 percent of the population 16 and older is fully vaccinated and we have a methods to precede we can get back to much of the important things we miss.”
The areas vaccination efforts are slowed by lacks in vaccine supply, requiring a number of vaccination websites across the region to pause.
The following sites will be paused through Monday: the Lemon Grove Community Center, the Central Region Immunization Clinic in Logan Heights, the Copley-Price YMCA in City Heights, the Martin Luther King Community Center in National City, the Border View YMCA in Otay Mesa and the Linda Rhoades Recreation Center in Vista.

State Metrics:
San Diego Countys state-calculated, adjusted case rate is currently 10.8 cases per 100,000 residents (as of March 2) and the area is in Purple Tier or Tier 1.
The screening positivity portion is 4.2%, positioning the County in Tier 3 or the Orange Tier. While the screening positivity rate for the County certifies it for Tier 3, the state utilizes the most limiting metric– in this case the adjusted case rate– and assigns counties to that tier. For that reason, the County stays in the Purple Tier or Tier 1.
The Countys health equity metric, which takes a look at the screening positivity for areas with the most affordable healthy conditions, is 6% and is in the Red Tier or Tier 2. This metric does not move counties to more limiting tiers but is needed to advance to a less limiting tier.
