Bakersfield Becomes the Top-Notch Site, Following the Visit of Renowned Actor

Bakersfield has become the hot destination for young Angelenos who want to intake the Covid-19 vaccine but do not qualify under the eligibility conditions. The vaccine seekers have included writers, engineers, and Hollywood actors, who say the vaccine site at Cal State Bakersfield was welcoming Angelenos with great affection and warmth.

South Californians up the ante when they traveled a four-hour round trip to the Central Valley to take the vaccine. While the news spread out that the sites had more available vaccines for the day, the people surged in numbers unhesitatingly. The patients more intrigued were the ones 16 years older.

By the night, Bakersfield became the most searched state on Twitter. Its coverage was trending worldwide. The site’s excess capacity is due in part to a  relatively high rate of vaccine hesitancy in Kern County, according to the officials at Kaiser Permanente. About 24% of people living in Kern County have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, compared with 33% of residents statewide. The data got collected in the Los Angeles Times Vaccine tracker.

Initially, the Country’s vision was to administer 5,400 doses per day. Yet only 900 people showed up each day during the first week after its March 26 inauguration. When the officials were preparing the initial draft of the vaccine site, the people from other countries didn’t really cross their minds. The claims were that the initial projections would be subject to the native, then according to the progress we would adapt to the circumstances, said David Womack,  senior vice president at Kaiser in Kern County.

The site’s popularity exploded last weekend, when actor Wil Wheaton, known for his role in Star Trek: The Next Generation, told his 1.1 million followers that he had visited the vaccination center and successfully administered the vaccine.
