San Luis Obispo County is stepping up mobile vaccination clinics throughout the area in an effort to encourage people to take the COVID-19 vaccine, especially as the Delta variant is spreading.
The Delta variant, first detected in India, is now increasing in numbers throughout the world. Dr. Penny Borenstein, SLO County’s public health officer said this variant has shown to spread more easily.
"I’m most concerned about people who are unvaccinated getting this disease," Borenstein said. "The research is still ongoing, but it may take a greater toll on people's health.”
