The San Diego County Health and Human Service agency reported 97,883 COVID-19 doses available to administer on Friday morning as supply resumed following winter storms on the East Coast.

The county’s vaccination dashboard showed a total of 909,225 doses received to date, up from 828,825 as of Thursday.

The increased supply comes as the county prepares to offer vaccinations to teachers, school staff, emergency services personnel, and workers in food and agriculture starting Saturday morning.

So far more than 534,000 residents, or 20% of the county’s population, have received at least one dose, and nearly 214,000 or 8% are fully vaccinated.

Appointments for vaccination can be made online via the county website.
