Placer County COVID Vaccine Shortage Keeps Thousands From Getting Shot

A supply shortage of COVID-19 vaccines in Placer County is keeping thousands of residents from getting their shot.

County health officer Dr. Rob Oldham says they're experiencing a "vaccine gap," meaning their current capacity to administer vaccines far exceeds their supply. Last week, only four thousand Placer County residents got the vaccine. Public health officials say ramp up the pace to 20,000 people per week, but they just don't have enough supply. The county has been struggling to accelerate the pace of vaccination for those 65 and older, but it can't do that without increased vaccine shipments.
