The Math Behind Why It’s So Hard To Get A Coronavirus Vaccine Appointment In LA
It’s not just you: it is truly difficult to make an appointment for a coronavirus vaccine in L.A. County. And it's not just because the website keeps crashing. It's because the county prioritizes second doses.
Each week, when the county finds out how much vaccine it will receive from the state, it sets aside a certain number of doses for people requiring their second dose of the vaccine.
That means there can be little leftover for new people to receive the vaccine.
