California tasks Blue Shield with fixing beleaguered vaccine Rollout

Dr. Shruti Gohil from UC Irvine’s School of Medicine says the new approach makes sense, especially because of the complexity of the current vaccines, which both require cold storage and a highly organized rollout plan: “Once you open a vial, you only have certain amount of time before you can distribute it to a person, so we need a sort of centralized approach. And short of having the resources and wherewithal through public health clinics, which we have not had for decades nationally, employing another agency that’s able to do that, would be great.”
