Text Box: Identifying this variant in Kern County is a reminder about the importance to stay vigilant with our COVID mitigation measures to avoid a third surge, as the CDC indicates that this variant is more transmissible and will spread faster and easier than the original version of COVID-19.
Vaccine:
As of March 22, the County has been allocated 227,765 doses of COVID-19 vaccine, including 11,760 doses arriving March 23. As of March 22, 230,164 doses have been administered to Kern County residents. 75,509 people have completed their vaccination series, which is about 8.2% of our population, and 99,910 doses have been administered to our 65+ population. Furthermore, 40,422 persons 65+ have completed their vaccination series, meaning 37% of our 65+ population has been fully vaccinated.
Unfortunately, our vaccine allotText Box: ment f rom the state has decreased since our highest week of 30,270 on March 8. Last week, Kern’s allotment was 23,890, with no doses of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. This week, Kern’s allotment is 20,440, with an additional 1,000 doses of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine given directly to a special clinic at Bakersfield College that was held last weekend. We continue to advocate for more vaccine and more Johnson and Johnson doses, as it helps us get our community vaccinated quicker.
If we continue to receive vaccine at the rate we are receiving it, it will take an additional 8 weeks to completely vaccinate our 65+ population at the 70% allotment currently required by the State. It will take 45 weeks to get the rest of our 16+ population fully vaccinated. If the vaccine gets approved for those under 16 years of age, it will take 68 weeks to get our entire population vacText Box: cinated at this rate.
The partnership between the Kern County Department of Public Health and Adventist Health Tehachapi Valley continues to distribute vaccines throughout my district with the mobile clinic. The following is a snapshot of vaccines administered as of March 24. Supervisor Zack

Text Box: Waste Management reminds us to “Bag Your Trash…”
Rosamond neighborhoods are riddled with trash after Waste Management empties Your trash.  And guess what?  It’s not their fault!

There are a couple of reasons why:

Trash is put into the trash container “un-bagged.”  Text Box: Bag Your Trash!
