VACCINE ELIGIBILITY UPDATE
As I mentioned to many of you in emails last night and in my Districtwide newsletter last week, things are rapidly changing around vaccine distribution. I am reaching out again as new information is now available regarding who is eligible to sign up to receive a vaccine in Placer County.
EDUCATION, CHILDCARE, EMERGENCY SERVICES WORKERS
The Placer County Public Health vaccination clinic @ the Grounds will begin vaccinating education, childcare and emergency services workers in accordance with state guidance starting next week, while continuing to vaccinate residents 65+ as well. Workers in these sectors must show proof of employment in Placer County. LEARN MORE
VACCINE INFORMATION & UPDATES
To be notified when large batches of new appointments become available, TEXT PLACERVACCINE to 898211 to receive text alerts. Vaccine remains in short supply relative to the demand and to the capacity of local providers to administer. Other health care providers may also be vaccinating different populations based on vaccine availability. Ensure your medical provider has your up-to-date contact information. More information is available at https://www.placer.ca.gov/vaccineclinics. The state is expected to release more guidance on the food and agriculture sector which would help solidify a timeline for this group.
Placer County is still severely limited in the availability of vaccine appointments based solely on the limited supply of doses we are receiving. So while it is great news that educators, child care workers, and emergency service personal are now eligible to receive the vaccine, there will not be enough available appointments for all those that would like to get the vaccine to receive it immediately.
Placer County and our partners are prepared to administer thousands more doses per week as soon as we receive additional allotments from the state. But until then, we will only be able to administer what receive.
Placer County staff continues to advocate for additional vaccines and we hope to see our allocation of doses increase in the coming weeks. Please know that we are working hard on your behalf. Many of our days are spent in meetings or on the phone trying to work out these difficult issues so we can make progress, together.
As your neighbor, your friend and local elected official, I want you to know that we’re working tirelessly for you. Please be sure to do your part- continue to wear your mask, wash your hands, and maintain social distance.
Thank you for taking the time to connect and do not hesitate to contact my office if you have any additional questions.
– Cindy Gustafson, District 5 Supervisor
