Coronavirus by the numbers

The San Diego County Health & Human Services Agency posts an updated list of coronavirus cases by ZIP code, including rates per 100,000 residents. Through April 23, ZIP code 92037 (estimated population 43,400) had a total of 5,595 registered cases (up by 64 from the previous count) and 12,926 per 100,000. ZIP code is the code of residence, which may not be the location of exposure.

The county also posts a list by ZIP code of the number of residents who have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Through April 27, 40,622 residents of the 92037 ZIP code had received at least one dose; 35,821 were considered fully vaccinated and 22,514 were fully vaccinated and had received a booster dose.

To align itself with the state, the county is now using the California Immunization Registry to record the number of area residents who have received COVID-19 vaccinations. The switch occurred April 25 and was required by the California Department of Public Health so that most health care systems across the state will be using the same software to record COVID-19 vaccinations and all other vaccines administered locally.
