There was some good news today for Los Angeles and other counties that are struggling to obtain enough vaccine to inoculate everyone who's eligible right now. State health officials gave the green light Restart using a batch of modern, a vaccine that was put on the shelf after a handful of people experienced allergic reactions. KCRW sterile Sandman has the latest. The state's top epidemiologist says a safety review found no scientific basis to continue the pause and that vaccinations with the modern a dose issued resume immediately. That decision frees up more than 300,000 doses to county cities in hospitals struggling to obtain supplies. Earlier this week, the state Department of Health recommended not using that batch of modern a vaccine after what was described as fewer than 10. People inoculated at San Diego's Petco Park developed severe reactions. Those problems were not reported in any other county that received vaccines from the same batch. More than four million doses have been shipped to California so far, but not all have arrived. As of the latest update Tuesday, state officials said roughly 1.5 million doses had been administered. Most of people in Long Beach eligible to get a cup of 19 vaccine is getting longer.
