Scripps Hospital CEO Chris Van Gorder says the hospital is anticipating a big demand from people looking to get boosters. He says Scripps is in talks with the Del Mar Fairgrounds about hosting a vaccination site there.
County supervisor Nathan Fletcher says once state approval is given, the region will be well-prepared to give out Pfizer booster shots.
Hundreds of students at San Diego’s Patrick Henry High School walked out of class at noon on friday. It was a planned protest to bring attention to climate change across the world and in their own backyard. The rally was endorsed by the school’s administration. Even principal Michele Irwin joined in.
“You know what? The adults...we’ve screwed it up. Now we’re looking to you. You are our future.”
This was one of many rallies held across the county. San Diego Unified School Board members encouraged the event by passing a resolution earlier this month protecting the students right to protest.
A lawsuit challenging San Diego’s ordinance banning Ghost Guns was filed just hours after Mayor Todd Gloria signed the law on thursday. The lawsuit was filed in San Diego federal court on behalf of firearms supporters: Firearms Policy Coalition, San Diego County Gun Owners PAC, along with some individuals.
