“First, we haven’t fully achieved full vaccination in any of the tiers [of eligible groups],” said Bernadette Boden-Albala, an epidemiologist and founding dean for the University of California, Irvine public health program, in a Thursday interview. … Boden-Albala said in underserved communities, “it’s not that there’s hesitancy per se, but there needs to be some better info, clarification of that info and the process of getting someone vaccinated. It’s not just ‘register here,’ it often takes someone to answer questions — especially in light of all the confusing information about vaccines like the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.”

“The numbers are looking great in Orange County,” Andrew Noymer, a UC Irvine [associate] professor of population health and disease prevention, told City News Service. Noymer analyzed data from states across the country on Wednesday and noted that while some maybe be struggling with upswings in cases, that is not the case in California. … Noymer said it is probably time to turn over vaccinations to traditional healthcare providers like pharmacies.
