Dr. Erica Pan of the California Department of Public Health says that the state is only receiving about 50,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine a day: Vaccinating Californians 65 and older could take until June, likely delaying rollout to other groups.
The current pace could change if the federal government speeds up shipments beyond the current rate of 300,000 to 500,000 doses each week, Pan said.
There are 40 million people in California.
Each person needs 2 doses of vaccine.
At 50,000 doses a day, it will take 1,600 days to vaccinate all of California.
That's 5 years.
