SAN FRANCISCO — More California counties are opening up vaccines to younger adults, a week ahead of the state’s schedule.
At the same time, California public health officials warned Thursday of decreases in supply because of a national reduction of the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The state has received about 2.4 million doses this week, but it expects 2 million next week and 1.9 million doses the week after.
Santa Clara County and Fresno County are the latest to open up vaccinations to everyone 16 and up.
A mass vaccination site at California State University, Los Angeles announced it would take adults on a walk-up basis because of excess appointments. It had to start turning people away Thursday.
