On this edition of Your Call, we are getting an update on the COVID-19 vaccine rollout in California. Starting today, all Californians 16 and older are now eligible to get a vaccine.

More than 23.7 million vaccines have been administered statewide and around 22% of Californians are now fully vaccinated, according to the state's tracker. With the Johnson & Johnson vaccine being put on pause, will the state have enough supply without facing a backlog? What questions do you have?
