Dr. Erica Pan, California State Epidemiologist, Reflects on the Second Anniversary of the COVID-19 Vaccine in California

December 14th marks the second anniversary of when COVID-19 vaccines became available to Californians. Join Dr. Erica Pan, California State Epidemiologist, as she reflects on how far the state has come in understanding and battling COVID-19.

While a high number of Californians have already been vaccinated and boosted, it’s still crucial for those who haven’t received their vaccine to get theirs as soon as possible, especially with the holidays coming up and the flu season upon us. Not only are health experts seeing an increase in both COVID-19 and flu infection cases like RSV, they are concerned about coinfection of these viruses, which is extremely dangerous, especially for young children.

Protect yourselves and your loved ones from COVID-19 by taking preventative measures, like getting vaccinated, wearing a mask, and avoiding big crowds. Let’s stay safe and healthy this holiday and beyond.
