The number of people in San Diego County hospitalized with COVID-19 remains unchanged at 207, according to the latest state data.
Of those patients hospitalized as of Sunday, 25 were in intensive care, with 209 ICU beds available.
As overall COVID-19 activity continues to trend downward in the region, and to align with the state’s reporting frequency, the HHSA will begin reporting COVID-19 data once a week — on Thursdays.
Meanwhile, San Diego County public health officials are reminding residents that bivalent COVID-19 boosters are available ahead of what is believed to a more virulent influenza season this winter.
San Diegans must be fully vaccinated with the primary series of one of the approved COVID-19 vaccines before receiving a bivalent booster. Anyone who wants to get a bivalent booster must wait at least eight weeks after they received a previous COVID-19 vaccine until they are eligible.
In addition, anyone who is fully vaccinated and recently tested positive for COVID-19, should wait three months after infection to get a bivalent booster.
More than 3.02 million or 90.4% of San Diegans age six months and older are at least partially vaccinated and more than 2.67 million or 80.0% are fully vaccinated. A total of 1,447,477 San Diegans, or 59% of 2,455,439 eligible, have been boosted.
