OC has administered nearly 245,000 vaccinations in the past week, ahead of the 230,000 and 181,000 administered in the two weeks prior.

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 600,000 OC residents are fully vaccinated, having received both doses of Pfizer and Moderna, or the single Johnson & Johnson dose.
