More Orange County residents now eligible for Coronavirus vaccinations

UC Irvine epidemiologist and public health expert, Daniel Parker, said it’s the right time to increase the eligibility pool of people to get vaccinated, but state officials need to collect more data to determine who’s actually getting the shots. …Andrew Noymer, UC Irvine epidemiologist and public health expert, said …. he expects another wave in OC, but he’s unsure how bad it can hit. … “It depends on how many people are vaccinated and it depends on whether or not the virus can escape the vaccine. So stay tuned. It’s not going to go away.”
