About 100,000 vaccines have been administered in the past week, marking a slower vaccine distribution pace compared to prior weeks.
Still, north of 800,000 vaccines—including first and second doses—have been distributed since April 15, when all Orange County adults and workers became eligible.
The OC Health Care Agency also provides vaccination figures; however, that website is updated once per week, compared to the state’s daily update, and also reflects a greater lag in the time it takes for information to be entered, according to the county.
The county indicates nearly 1.3 million OC residents are fully vaccinated as of May 9, having received both doses of Pfizer and Moderna, or the single Johnson & Johnson dose.
That’s up from nearly 1.2 million a week ago.
