Here are the top four stories today in Oceanside-Camp Pendleton:

  1. Patch has rounded up fun, interesting and entertaining events throughout Southern California β€” from the southernmost part of San Diego, through Orange and Riverside counties, to the beaches and valleys in Los Angeles. Some are free. Some have a fee. Whether you opt for an activity close to home or a mini day trip, see what’s slated this weekend. (Carlsbad Patch)
  2. As the latest COVID-19 surge continues to drive cases up, San Diego County residents will soon be able to get the Novavax COVID-19 vaccine, the county Health and Human Services Agency announced Friday. Novavax, which is being used all over the world, will be available to area residents at local healthcare providers, retail pharmacies, community clinics and county public health centers and community vaccination events as soon as this weekend. (San Diego Patch)
  3. A dozen vending machines will be installed throughout San Diego County over the next year, but instead of chips and sodas, they’ll offer free kits of naloxone, a drug used to reverse opioid overdoses. The county said in a news release Thursday that a dozen machines will be installed throughout the region by the summer of 2023. Six are scheduled to be installed by the end of this year. Naloxone, also known by the brand name Narcan, restores normal breathing after an overdose and can prevent overdose deaths if used quickly and followed by medical treatment. (San Diego Patch)
  4. San Diego County residents can now receive information about monkeypox via text thanks to the County public information text message alert system. The system allows county health officials to send real-time information about monkeypox in the region. To sign up to receive the messages, text COSD MONKEYPOX to 468-311. The system was set up to let county public health officials issue timely information and instructions related to monkeypox in the San Diego region. (County of San Diego)
