The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors stated on August 31 that residents of Los Angeles County will not see vaccine regulations in indoor public places for the time being.
“I don’t believe I’m ready to pull the trigger on the vaccination certificate,” Supervisor Janice Hahn said at the city council meeting.
On August 10, the Board of Supervisors approved a Hahn motion to investigate the possibility of requiring vaccination in indoor public places (including restaurants, retail stores, entertainment venues, and other public places) in the county.Last month, the board of directors Approved a plan that requires all county employees to be fully vaccinated Or get tested for COVID-19 every week.
The Los Angeles County Director of Public Health, Barbara Ferrer, reported on the COVID-19 update at the August 31 meeting that the current 7-day average daily case rate in Los Angeles County is 21.1 and the number of hospitalizations is 1,687. Ferrer said that currently more than 95% of COVID-19 deaths have not been vaccinated.
Ferrer’s report shows that the number of vaccines has been declining in recent months, from nearly 450,000 doses per week at the peak in March and April to about 70,000 doses per week in mid-August.
The supervisors’ conversations took place after many county residents called meetings to oppose vaccine regulations.
Resident Nathan Ignacio (Nathan Ignacio) said: “Regulators work hard to get people to get two vaccines, or they support policies that protect people. It’s not a problem—these are all good things.” “The problem is that they treat them. We are treated like children, employees, and farmers. They use taxpayer-sponsored gifts and junk food to bribe people to obtain vaccines. Therefore, their first priority does not seem to be financial responsibility, health or science. So, although I support the provision of vaccines, But I oppose the current and proposed authorization.”
Other residents who called, such as Jeffrey Bauer, condemned mandatory vaccination as “racist” and “discriminatory” in nature, especially for the African-American community.
Ferrer’s report shows that the county’s African-American and Latino communities’ young people’s vaccination rate is 50-59%. The number of vaccines.
“I just think these tasks are a slippery slope, and I thank the Board of Supervisors for trying to ensure our safety, but these tasks are racist and discriminatory in nature and need to be abolished,” Bauer said. “It is important that we also study other treatments and study natural immunity,” Bauer said, pointing An Israeli study reported People with natural immunity have stronger immunity to delta variants than those who have taken Pfizer twice.
Ferrer said: “The use of targeted vaccination directives is to speed up the pace of vaccination coverage, which can slow the spread and save lives.”
“So we do suggest that we consider implementing a requirement for people to be vaccinated before they can enter… We think it makes sense to ask people in these places if they want to use these services or participate in these activities. I am fully vaccinated,” she said. .
Ferrer said her department considers indoor vaccine regulations to be a “workable strategy,” but said “we obey the board.”
Hahn said that she was “surprised” by Ferrer’s graphs, saying the numbers looked more optimistic than they were a week ago. She went on to say that after reading the report, she felt that “the challenge of implementing such a thing is as great as the benefits of reducing transmission and encouraging more people to be vaccinated.”
“There are some real obstacles to implementing it, and there is a feeling that it takes some time to create a deliberate media education campaign to educate our business partners and the public that we are going to do this,” Hahn said. “Let’s look at more data and decide if this is the right step for us.”
Hilda Solis, Chairman of the Board of Directors, suggested that the Board observe the development of the numbers and use September 10 as a possible date for re-discussing the dialogue. “Of course I am not in a hurry to know that we have put in place a lot of good safeguards,” she said.
As no official action was taken, Hahn’s spokesperson refused to issue a statement to The Epoch Times. As of press time, Ferrer’s office did not respond to a request for comment.
