Los Angeles County, California, is the worst hit area of the current epidemic, but the local supply of new vaccines is insufficient, US media reported on the 22nd. At the current rate, it may take a year to vaccinate all adult residents, local health officials said.
More than 1.05 million cases have been confirmed in Los Angeles County, California, CNN reported Tuesday. However, according to Paul Simon, chief scientific officer of Los Angeles County Public Health Bureau, the supply of new crown vaccine in the county is very limited. At the current rate, it may take a year to vaccinate all adult residents in the county. There are about 10 million residents in Los Angeles County, and about 2 million people meet the current vaccination conditions. However, according to the information released by Los Angeles County Public Health Bureau, the supply of new coronal vaccine in the county is only enough to vaccinate one fourth of all eligible people.
