Orange County receives record 1-week supply of vaccine doses as less restrictive tier looms

Dr. Jose Mayorga, who teaches family medicine at UC Irvine, said the Anaheim and Santa Ana clinics where he treats patients just began getting a combined 800 doses a week, which is twice the amount they’d been receiving. “We’ve heard the president (President Joe Biden) already say he’s shooting for 200 million doses” administered nationwide by May, Mayorga said. “On the ground what we’re seeing, we’re absolutely seeing an increase in vaccine availability.”
