California has a new plan for COVID-19 vaccine distribution and another way to get in line; CapRadio’s Healthcare Reporter Sammy Caiola has details of the plan and how counties play a role. Transportation in all forms also continues to be significantly impacted by the pandemic, including the state’s high speed rail project; we get updates on what’s needed to save public transit amid COVID-19. Plus, what it’ll take to transition to all-electric vehicles after Governor Newsom set aside some $1.5 billion to help electric and hydrogen vehicles in the new state budget proposal.
