California is preparing to expand its COVID-19 vaccine availability to all residents 16 years of age and older. Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.) announced the upcoming changes to the state’s distribution plans on Thursday.

Starting April 1, residents 50 years old and over will be able to get the vaccine. Californians 16 years old and over will be eligible the following week, on April 15.

“Our ability to do more has always been constrained by supply, manufactured supply,” Newsom stated. “We have confidence, now, of the manufactured supply becoming available sooner than we had anticipated.”

The governor said California will be able to administer 4 million doses a week by the end of April.
