OC Supervisor Katrina Foley, 2nd District
April 16, 2021 Volume 1 Issue 3
Dear Neighbor:

This week, I attended my first Board of Supervisors meeting, where my colleagues and I took action on a number of key agenda items, including voting on my board and commissions appointments. Thank you to all those who have answered to call to serve; I look forward to working with you in your new roles.

There was also controversy at the meeting around the voluntary Othena digital vaccine record, stirred up by a small minority in our communities. I issued this statement in response to their concerns regarding the voluntary record. I also released this statement condemning the actions and conduct of certain public speakers. I will continue working with our Jewish leaders, to ensure our Jewish communities feel safe and represented after such reprehensible actions.

In office news, I also announced the appointment of our new Public Safety Liaison - I look forward to welcoming Chief Snowden to our team! My team and I have also been busy planning, and will be hosting our first vaccine pod on Saturday, April 17th in Costa Mesa, specifically for the city’s 4th and 5th district residents.

We have plenty of work to do ahead!

Warmest regards,

Supervisor, District Two

Orange County Board of Supervisors


Happy Friday!

Here’s my latest report:

  • More than 855,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered through Othena in Orange County to date, with 1,253,000+ people registered in the county's vaccination system.
  • Everyone 16 and over who lives or works in Orange County, can now schedule a vaccination appointment. For those under the age of 18, parental consent is required, and they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian when receiving their vaccine.

Please visit to register.

In collaboration with Dr. Clayton Chau and the staff at the Orange County Health Care Agency (OCHA), our District 2 team has launched an initiative to provide local vaccine clinics in our hard-to-reach communities to get shots in as many arms as possible over the next three months.

The first mobile clinic will take place on:

Saturday, April 17th

9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Costa Mesa


In partnership with community partners, Costa Mesa Fire, Share Our Selves and SOY (Save Our Youth).

We will continue working with every city in the district to expand local vaccination options, as we focus on getting back to living our best lives. But in the meantime, you can always get vaccinated via our Super Pod locations, which include late hours on Thursdays in District 2 at the OC Fair and Events Center.

As you may have seen from this week’s Board meeting, the County has begun testing a voluntary digital vaccine record for the residents who have already been vaccinated through Othena.


The record is voluntary and created as a way to equally protect privacy information while helping those who need easy access to proof of vaccination. As our office stated earlier this week, this is an opt-in courtesy for residents - e.g. those who might have to travel abroad, and not a requirement.
