Perhaps he can shed light on why the County has not fulfilled this promise:

How Will We Track Progress?
We will monitor vaccine distribution closely. Some of the metrics we will track and share publicly include: ​

· # doses distributed
· # individuals receiving vaccine (will break this down by different groups to make sure key groups are not being left out)
· # mass vaccination clinics
· # unused/wasted doses

Supervisor Horsley states:

"I know that we are not hiding any information. The distribution of the vaccine doesn’t go to the County for the most part. We only get vaccine for low income residents. The rest in handled by large hospital systems and large pharmacy. We have to rely on them sending information to the State and then back to the County."
