Which ethnic groups are most eager to get vaccinated in Southern California counties?

While California has much to crow about when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccination campaign —  30 million doses have been administered and 18.4 million people have received at least one shot — the vast majority of its Black and Latino residents remain unvaccinated. Those also happen to be the groups most heavily impacted by the pandemic. Across the region as well as statewide, Asian Americans were the most eager of the major groups to get vaccinated.

Headway raises $70M at a $750M valuation to help connect therapists with people and insurance schemes

Mental health, and how it is getting addressed, has been one of the major leitmotifs of the past year of pandemic living. Covid-19 not only has led to a lot of people getting ill or worse; it has increased isolation, economic uncertainty, and led to a lot of other kinds of disappointments, and that all has had a knock-on effect on our collective and individual state of mind. Today a startup called Headway, which has been working on building a better way for people to attend to themselves — by wa...

CDC: Anxiety, Not The Shots Themselves, Drove Vaccine Reactions Reported In California, 4 Other States

LOS ANGELES (AP/CBS13) – It was anxiety – and not a problem with the shots – that caused reactions in dozens of people at coronavirus vaccine clinics in California and four other states, U.S. health officials have concluded. Experts say the clusters detailed Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are an example of a phenomenon that’s been chronicled for decades from a variety of different vaccines. Basically, some people get so freaked out by injections that their anxiety spurs...

Former Pasadena resident suffering from long-term case of COVID-19 in Philippines

By all accounts, former Pasadena resident Chris Burns was always full of energy. “Chris is an unstoppable force of nature,” said Laurent Malaquais, a friend of Burns who worked with him in the film industry. “I remember we would be on shoots and he would go 14, 15 hours, like he would just go nonstop.” Now, Burns lives in the Philippines and he’s directing all of his effort to fighting for his life against COVID-19.

Study: People Of Color More Exposed Than Whites To Air Pollution

Across America, people of color are exposed to more air pollution than whites from industry, vehicles, construction and many other sources, a new study has found.

Mark Driscoll’s Elderless Church, Part Two

On Monday, I wrote that former church members and staff told me that Mark Driscoll’s Scottsdale organization The Trinity Church doesn’t have elders. However, the organization does have a small corporate board made up of Driscoll as president and Jimmy Evans and Randall Taylor as Directors. Nonprofits must have boards so here we have a board theoretically charged with the oversight of this organization. However, these are not elders as Driscoll describes them in his book Doctrine. Evans doesn’t a...

The study also found that the vaccines were 64% effective among those older adults who were partially vaccinated, meaning they had only received one dose of vaccine so far. These findings are consistent with the vaccin...

What To Do To Get Your COVID-19 Vaccination Added To Your Medical Record

(CNN) — Getting vaccinated against Covid-19 and receiving a vaccination card has become a rite of passage for many Americans who have endured the pandemic for the last year. Securing a vaccination card, however, doesn’t necessarily mean your Covid-19 vaccine status is in your medical records. Many got the vaccines at drive-in events, sports stadiums and other mass vaccination locations in their communities. If you are among the countless people who didn’t get the doses at a primary care doctor’s...

Here’s what LA County is doing about the vaccine hesitant

With close to half of Los Angeles County adults now with at least one dose of coronavirus vaccine in their arms, health officials have become more confident the county will succeed in vaccinating enough people to prevent another massive surge in cases possibly taking place again like it did this winter. But while the county has made great strides so far in vaccinating workers and residents, there is a recognition that getting the second half of adults inoculated will not be as easy because they ...

LOS ANGELES (AP/CBS13) — Just a few months ago, California was the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S. Hospitals across the state were drowning in patients, and ambulances were idling outside with people struggling to breathe, waiting for beds to open. The death count was staggering — so many that morgues filled and refrigerated trucks were brought in to handle the overflow. Now as cases spike in other parts of the country, California has gone from worst to first with the lowest in...
