Compared to cities with similar numbers of adults in Los Angeles County, Malibu is third of four when it comes to those vaccinated against COVID-19.

A year into the pandemic, Malibu has seen 364 cases of the virus and seven associated deaths.

With 2,009 of Malibu's 10,697 residents 18 and older receiving at least one dose of the vaccine as of Feb. 20, data from the county Department of Public Health indicates a slightly less than 19 percent vaccination rate.

Only Hawaiian Gardens fared worse than Malibu, with just 970 of its 10,728 eligible adults receiving at least one dose.

That’s 9 percent of the adult population.

Topping the list is Palos Verdes Estates, where nearly 30 percent of the 11,696 adults have received at least one dose.

In second, right above Malibu, is San Marino. There, of the 11,148 residents over 18, more than 28 percent — 3,163 people — are at least single-dosers.

When it comes to the 14-day cumulative case rate, San Marino is tops, with seven total cases, and an adjusted case rate of 60 per 100,000 people.

Palos Verdes Estates has an adjusted case rate of 107, with nine total cases in the past two weeks.

Malibu also reported nine cases, with an adjusted case rate of 112.

Hawaiian Gardens is at the bottom. The number of cases in the past two weeks there is 57, according to the county, with an adjusted case rate of 388.
