Reduction in Vaccine Allocations to Impact 1st Doses

Mendocino County officials announced yesterday there will be a reduction in the amount of vaccine allocations from the state in upcoming weeks. According to a press release, the State is receiving a reduced supply of COVID-19 vaccines from the Federal Government for allocation to local health jurisdictions and providers. The CDC indicates there are approximately one million first doses available for allocation by the State this week – a 33% decrease from last week. Mendocino County health officials say the reduction in vaccine allotment will not affect second doses, and the county will focus on administering second doses, which continue to be timed 3 to 4 weeks out.
