Blue Shield of California tapped to run state vaccine system

UC Davis Medical Center nurse Heather Donaldson prepares to inoculate a staff member with the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2020 in Sacramento, Calif.

Health insurance giant Blue Shield of California will be the outside administrator tasked with ramping up the state’s coronavirus vaccine delivery system, which to date has been slow, stilted and plagued by confusion, the state health agency said  Wednesday.
