SAN DIEGO, CA — UC San Diego Health has partnered with the county of San Diego and plans to vaccinate a minimum of 5,000 individuals per day in opposition to the novel coronavirus beginning Monday, it was reported Friday.
The determination, made Thursday, comes as hospitals all through the county are bracing for a post-New Year’s Eve surge in infections that can problem the area’s potential to take care of COVID sufferers, in line with the San Diego Union-Tribune.
“With the new partnership, we urgently need hundreds of UC San Diego Health team members to help out,” college officers stated via an inner memo distributed on Thursday.
“This is an ‘all hands’ effort as the goal is to vaccinate over 5,000 community members a day. You have the power to help vaccinate our community! We will need licensed and non-licensed team members (faculty, staff, students, and trainees) to step forward to serve in multiple different roles with supervisor approval to ensure a safe vaccine process,” the memo stated, in line with the Union-Tribune.
