Since February 2020, the world has grappled with a ruthless public health crisis due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Since then, 429,000 Americans have lost their lives due to this virus, including 2,465 San Diegans.
The development and approval of vaccines provide a glimmer of hope to finally end this pandemic, but distributing the COVID-19 vaccines and getting them into people’s arms proves to be a monumental task among local, state and federal governments.
Although the situation remains fluid, some San Diegans have concerns, including the order in which the public is being vaccinated, the number of doses available in hospitals, the way in which the public is being notified about important vaccine updates, and vaccine site information among others.
Please join us for an informative event next week. As part of a series of virtual town halls where Scott Peters invites colleagues in Congress and experts to present information to San Diegans, we’ll discuss the state of the vaccine rollout in San Diego and provide updates on the continued efforts to fight this virus.
Scott Peters will be joined by Dr. Shane Crotty from the La Jolla Institute for Immunology and Dr. Corinne McDaniels-Davidson, Director of the Institute for Public Health (IPH) at San Diego State University.
Date: Wednesday, February 3rd
Time: 5:00 – 6:15 P.M.
Location: Virtual via Cisco Webex
Attendees are welcome to join the town hall as early as 4:50 P.M. by clicking on the link.
