LOS ANGELES (AP) — California is moving toward easing restrictions on businesses now that the nation’s most populous state is seeing rapid declines in new coronavirus cases and hospitalizations.
Gov. Gavin Newsom spoke at a federally supported mass vaccination site in Los Angeles that opened Tuesday along with a similar facility in Oakland.
Both are intended to vaccinate people in underserved communities hit hard by the pandemic.
California expects to get about 6,000 doses of vaccine a day for each site.
That’s separate from the state’s regular allocation.
The state got 1.08 million doses this week and expects 1.28 million doses next week.
