Please note: Determining who receives vaccinations is at the discretion of the local Public Health department and they may adjust prioritization based on availability and other resource constraints.
The State’s COVID-19 vaccination plan establishes vaccination eligibility for certain people, beginning March 15, 2021, including:
- “…individuals aged 16-64 who are deemed to be at the very highest risk to get very sick from COVID-19” because they have a specified severe health condition;
- “If as a result of their developmental or other severe high-risk disability, … the individual is likely to develop severe life-threatening illness or death from COVID-19 infection, [or]… will limit the individual’s ability to receive ongoing care or services vital to their well-being and survival, [or]… providing adequate or timely COVID care will be particularly challenging as a result of the individual’s disability.”
This means that individuals 16 and older who are actively served by TCRC can potentially get vaccinated depending on the availability of COVID-19 vaccine doses in their county.
The California Department of Public Health has authored a Fact Sheet (ca.gov) which has information about who is eligible for vaccination and how to get vaccinated.
