Riverside County to launch corona vaccination to people aged 16 and over – press enterprise



From Tuesday, April 6, Riverside County will be offering the corona vaccine to residents aged 16 and up nine days before the state plans to do so, officials announced Monday.

“The extension will help the last of Riverside County’s last adult residents get vaccinated and bring us one step closer to herd immunity,” said Kim Saruwatari, who is currently active in the United States. The district’s health director said in a press release, “Applying the vaccine to a younger population where we have seen an increase in the number of cases is a huge step forward.”

At the same launch, Supervisor Karen Spiegel said: “There are more vaccines available now, and the exposure will help us move towards the goal of vaccinating more of the majority of our residents.”
