SACRAMENTO, Calif. - California Health and Human Services Secretary, Dr. Mark Ghaly, will host a video conference at noon Tuesday to provide an update on COVID-19 in California.

California is revamping its vaccine delivery system to give the state more control over who gets the shots following intense criticism of a slow and scattered rollout by counties.

The state’s health agency on Tuesday said third-party administrators would take over ordering and distributing vaccine doses, putting an end to a hodgepodge system where each county and hospital system ran its own vaccine delivery program.

The move comes after California faced criticism for a slow rollout as coronavirus cases soared and hospital beds filled up with patients in much of the state.
