First Mass COVID-19 Vaccination Sites in California

COVID Vaccination Sites in California

As part of the Federal government’s efforts to increase the vaccination speed, they announced that they’d be opening two new COVID vaccination sites in California. Which will be located in Oakland Coliseum and the California State University. Because these areas were most affected by the pandemic.

Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Governor’s Office of Emergency services are the bodies responsible for running the vaccination sites.

According to sources, these vaccination sites will be open to the general public on the 16th of February, 2021.

And as President Biden’s lead Coordinator for COVID, Jeffrey Zients said, “These sites in California are just the beginning. We are working with, in partnership, in states across the country to stand up new sites. And will have more to say on that in the coming weeks.”

Governor Newsom has been positive about these new COVID vaccination sites in California. And he said they’d be rolling out about 6000 doses every day to try to quicken the process. 

FEMA will provide the facilities and staff for the vaccination centers. They also provided $1.7 billion to 27 states to cater for storage, transportation, and supplies.

Days back, they announced that they’d begin the shipment of vaccines directly to pharmacies, and in the past two weeks, have increased shipments to states by 20 percent. 

“A significant step forward in the ongoing effort to ensure every American who wants a vaccine will receive a vaccine,” said Bob Fenton, the acting administrator of FEMA.

While we’re still trying to get everyone vaccinated, officials of the administration have beckoned the public to wear masks and try to avoid large gatherings.
