Breakthrough COVID-19 cases from the omicron variant — infections among the vaccinated — are less common among people who have received their third vaccination shots, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Public health officials are concerned that current vaccination rates are insufficient to fend off a fifth wave of the coronavirus. Only 61% of eligible Americans are fully vaccinated, and only 28 percent have gotten booster shots.
According to the rules laid out by the city, a person is considered fully vaccinated 14 or more days after completing the entire recommended series of vaccination with a COVID-19 Vaccine. Currently, an individual is considered Fully Vaccinated at least two weeks after receiving a second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine or two weeks after receiving the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine.
While Culver City’s vaccination rates are high, (above 80% of the population has had two shots) we have no way of knowing the vaccination rate of those who are here to work, or just enjoy the city.
Boosters are essential.
COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations are increasing, with about 120,000 new cases and 1,200 deaths reported each day, mainly from the delta variant.
Locations to book a booster shot in Culver City include Pavilions, at 11030 Jefferson Blvd, or CVS at
6299 South Bristol Parkway. Contacting your health care provider will also give you immediate information on getting scheduled for a shot.
