Kern County is set to receive 78% more vaccines this week, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced during a stop in Arvin on Monday.

The increased allocation comes from a reorganization of state vaccination efforts, one that focuses more on the Central Valley, according to Newsom.

That means Kern County is scheduled to receive 14,850 vaccines this week, a significant increase over the previous weekly allotment.

As a part of the state reorganization, the Central Valley as a whole will receive 58% more vaccines moving forward.
