SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Watch live as California Gov. Gavin Newsom provides an update on the state's COVID-19 vaccination efforts.
In Gov. Newsom's last COVID-19 update, it was announced that California would be joining with the federal government to open two new vaccination centers as test areas for new President Joseph Biden's effort to create 100 mass vaccination sites nationwide in 100 days.
According to a report from The Associated Press on Feb. 10, thousands of COVID-19 vaccination appointment opportunities went unused at the Dodger Stadium mass inoculation site on Tuesday because of apparent confusion over whether people could receive first shots there.
Los Angeles County health officials announced last week that because of short supplies of the vaccine people could only receive second shots at county-run inoculation sites starting Feb. 9.
Dodger Stadium is among vaccination sites operated by the city of Los Angeles, which is not limiting appointments to second shots only. About 4,800 doses that were intended for use Tuesday are being made available Wednesday.
