The County is encouraging anyone who has contact with at-risk populations to receive the inoculation, including first responders, public transit employees, and food and healthcare workers.
The City of San Diego and other at-risk locations have installed hand-washing stations and power washed streets.
San Diego City Council President Myrtle Cole Tuesday called on Mayor Kevin Faulconer to redirect $5 million previously set aside for a special election in November to "accelerate" the city's efforts to address homelessness:
"Our city is currently facing a deadly outbreak of Hepatitis A that is compounded by our rapidly growing homeless population. This is why we believe that the Mayor and City Council should work together immediately to develop a ballot measure that is focused only on a long-term funding source to prevent and respond to homelessness and affordable housing."
The statement was also signed by council members Barbara Bry, David Alvarez, and Georgette Gomez.
