2/22/2021 – County Continues Prioritizing Residents 65+ as Vaccine Eligibility Tiers Expand
As vaccine access expands today to eligible essential workers including teachers and law enforcement, the County of San Mateo remains committed to ensuring residents 65 and older receive shots. Approximately 60 percent of San Mateo County residents in that age demographic have already received the first dose of the vaccine. Building on that momentum, the County remains focused on reaching residents who still need their first dose.
The County and its medical partners this week will support vaccination clinics in Daly City and Half Moon Bay for pre-identified residents who will be contacted to make an appointment. The County is also working with community partners to pilot a field vaccination unit to reach up to 300 agricultural workers at their workplaces.
