California’s governor Gavin Newsom said that they were looking to add several qualified people to increase the number of vaccinations, which was failing to meet set goals. The authorities are looking into recruiting dentists, pharmacy techs, National Guard members and other workers to help reach goals.
California has already obtained almost 1.3 million doses of the vaccine. Only 454,306 doses have been dispensed till Sunday. The state is expecting a shipment of 611,500 additional doses. Earlier, Newsom had said that the plan was to administer 2 million doses by the end of 2020.
On Monday, the governor acknowledged that their vaccinations efforts were “not good enough.” He spoke about submitting a $3 million budget to improve vaccine efforts. He also said that he was exploring best practices with other state governors.
He commented on a “modest growth rate” in hospitalizations but noted that there could be a surge of cases as a result of holiday and New Year travel and get-togethers. He added that data indicated that New Year’s eve mobility levels were similar to levels during the stay-at-home order in March.
CDA president Judy Tippett-Whyte said in a statement that the dentists were ready to administer the COVId-19 vaccine “to help with surge capacities” and would be at vaccination sites to help “save lives.”
On Wednesday, a community advisory committee will meet to plan the next phase of dispensing the vaccine. The ADA wanted dentists to be vaccinated, as a priority group, so they could help in vaccinations
