SAN MATEO, Calif. (KRON) – KRON4’s Sara Stinson was live in San Mateo where a mass vaccination site is reopening at the county’s event center.
The site has the capacity to distribute 4,000 doses of the vaccine a day, but demand is low.
On Thursday only 500 appointments had made, meaning officials are foregoing requiring appointments. Walk-ups are allowed for people 18 and older.
“This is the day we’ve been waiting for for a long time,” said County Manager Mike Callagy. “We have availability. We have enough doses to get everyone vaccinated who wants a dose.”
70% of adults have already been vaccinated in San Mateo County.
