Orange County set to receive first shipment of vaccines by Dec. 16

UCI Medical Center Dr. Susan Huang, an infectious diseases professor, said the news of the vaccines is “the only bright light” these days as hospitalizations of COVID-19 patients soar. “We’re very fortunate here at UCI. We have surge plans to double our capacity,” Huang said. … UCI is expecting to receive about 3,000 doses, Huang said. More doses from the similar vaccine from Moderna are expected next week, she added.
