All healthcare personnel in Phase 1A are currently eligible to be vaccinated. In addition, some health systems in the County are now allowing Santa Clara County residents who are age 75 or older to receive their vaccine.
Eligibility for COVID-19 vaccine is determined by state and federal criteria. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has announced that all individuals in Phase 1A are eligible to be vaccinated, and that healthcare providers may begin offering doses to additional groups in Phase 1B Tier 1 after appropriate efforts have been made to reach higher priority groups and when demand from people in Phase 1A has slowed down.
Individuals who are eligible to be vaccinated, should contact their healthcare provider for more information or to make an appointment:
