#ICYMI: Yesterday, we cut the ribbon for Be Well OC’s new Orange Campus. Last week, I took a tour of the new facility. I am so excited that OC residents will finally have access to life-changing mental health and other services offered through #BeWellOC. In 2015, Supervisor Bartlett and I, as part of the Mental Health Ad Hoc Committee, began examining mental health services in Orange County, working tirelessly to help build a better System of Care. I can’t express how grateful I am to my colleagues, our staff, and all our collaborators who have been part of this endeavor for your leadership and for being a part to bring better mental health care to all Orange County residents. ...

No, thanks! You and your family can have my vaccine.
Unfortunately, the Othena site keeps crashing. Sometimes it says you are using the wrong password, even though you have registered and are using the right one - if you click on the reset password link, it says it sends you an email link, but it never does. Sometimes when you try and register, even if you are in your mid-80's and live in Irvine, it tells you you aren't eligible. And, sometimes it just will not open up at all. Why did the County contract with a company that so obviously can not handle this issue?
Your team had months to devise a system. Scientists worked at record speed to create these amazing vaccinations and the county can’t even execute a distribution plan. The Othena sites are deeply flawed. Incredibly disappointing and truly inexcusable.
You must take action about Othena. It is not the proper tool for vaccine registration. Just increasing bandwidth will not solve the problem. Othena is not ROBUST.
During the press conference, Andrew Do, First District OC Supervisor also acknowledged the ongoing issues with the Othena app, and said it would require the patience of the community as the county works to resolve the issues.
“I know people may have a hard time getting through [the Othena app], because the volume of people trying to get appointments is so high, that the system can be overloaded – the server can only handle so many calls, then sometimes it crashes,” Do said during Tuesday’s press conference at Disneyland. “Be patient. If it’s not available today, try again in the future. We are working on the technical side to increase the bandwidth, to get people in – to at least let them know that we have them in the system.” My comments: THERE is no feedback given to users as to appointment. Difficult to navigate, pick a calendar date, time, does not function properly. Then to tell users to keep trying causes lots of traffic to the site. GET REAL... we can register for classes at Saddleback, for example, or events through Eventbrite. You will not reach vaccine goals using Othena.
Tune it to today’s press conference regarding the County’s first Super POD site at Disneyland:
County of Orange, California The County of Orange is pleased to announce the establishment of the first large Point-of-Dispensing (POD) site to provide COVID-19 vaccines to residents at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim. More details about this Super POD will be announced at a press conference today at 1:30 p.m. live from the Disneyland Resort. ... See moreSee less
Today, I was elected Chairman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors by my colleagues, alongside O.C. Supervisor Doug Chaffee, who was elected Vice Chairman. I look forward to working closely Supervisor Chaffee to continue our fight against COVID-19 and begin the monumental effort of vaccine distribution. There is hope for the future, and we’ll work hard to make sure we deliver on that hope for the people of Orange County. ... See moreSee less
Distribute the vaccine like they do in the UAE: sign up or walk in, show your ID, get the shot. They're way ahead of everyone. Come one OC!
How sad that a person who mishandled the virus 🦠 is elected the top supervisor. So many deaths could have be avoided if the supervisor would have depoliticized the response.
Political ambitions should not result in 💀 death. Look at what happened with the republicans response on January 6th.
I have no faith in this man.
Congratulations. You have worked very hard for OC.👍
Thank you for your dedication to Orange County!
Congratulations from the City of Laguna Niguel!
So proud of you
Keep up the good work. Lee Ramos, Chair, OC Historical Comission
Congratulations gentlemen! Lead on 🇺🇸
Have fun. Miss the BOS. 🎉🎈🌟
Congratulations. I steady hand at the helm is a good thing these days.
I would like to thank my colleagues for once again entrusting me to serve our community as Chairman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors. It is an incredible honor to serve on the Orange County Board of Supervisors, and I consider it a privilege to serve the cities of Santa Ana, Garden Grove, Westminster, Fountain Valley, and Midway City for four more years. Watch my swearing-in for statements on our accomplishments thus far and the hard work that lies ahead: ... See moreSee less

Well if it goes well like other things you have had your hand in I’ll probably die before I get the shot.
You both have yet to do a good job in helping decrease the spread. Now that the wicked witch is gone perhaps the board will be able to properly make a dent in reducing the spread. I ask that you bust the hospitals and show us that you can see the tragedy first hand.
