On February 22, 2021, San Mateo County Health announced the expansion of COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to child care providers, along with teachers, first responders, and food and agricultural workers.
As of March 2nd, hundreds of early education professionals have been vaccinated in San Mateo County, including at three child care-eligible vaccination clinics hosted by San Mateo County Health. These efforts are prioritizing those who have remained open during the pandemic and who serve the highest-risk families and communities, including East Palo Alto, North Fair Oaks, Redwood City, Belle Haven and Daly City.
Child care professionals and early educators can receive vaccines from their primary health providers, federally operated FEMA clinics, and vaccination clinics through San Mateo County Health.
Information on available vaccine appointments can be found at myturn.ca.gov. Child care vaccination updates are available through 4Cs of San Mateo County at sanmateo4cs.org.
