CA Vaccines Not Moving Quickly 01-13-21 16:24 DC
California now has more doses of the COVID-19 vaccine than any other U.S. state. Some 2.8 million doses have been received since Jan. 11, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
California is the most populous state in the country with about 40 million residents.
The problem is that the Golden State is getting its allotment into the arms of citizens more slowly than other states.
California has only used 27% of its doses, administering 782,638, according to the CDC.
Other states — including ones with large populations such as Texas and New York — are moving more quickly, and their vaccine rates are much higher. As of Monday, California ranked 42nd in terms of administering the vaccine.
