Half Of US Adults Are Fully Vaccinated & CA Is Ending Its Mask Mandate
On this edition of Your Call, UCSF Doctor Monica Gandhi will discuss where we are in the pandemic. Half of US adults are fully vaccinated as nationwide cases and deaths continue to fall.
In California, around 55 percent of the state's adult population is fully vaccinated, according to the latest CDC data. California is set to reopen its economy on June 15th and lift mask requirements for vaccinated people in most settings, but some workplaces are still planning to require them. What questions do you have?
