CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE

Tuesday 18 Jan 2021

COVID-19 VACCINE

CURRENTLY 1A AND AGE 75 MAY RECEIVE THE VACCINE AND MAY DO SO BY CLICKING THE LINK BELOW

1A: Healthcare Personnel, Long Term Care Facility Workers/Residents

1B: Frontline Essential Workers (fire, police, corrections, food, mail, manufacturing, grocery, transit, education), Age >=75

1C: Age 65-74, Co-Morbid Medical Conditions, Other Essential Workers

Currently the California COVID-19 Vaccination Program enrollment requires providers to have an ultra low freezer down to -60 degrees C so we may be referring our patients to certain pharmacies, the hospital, or Petco Park venue.  Will post updates on this website!  All providers who administer the vaccine will be required to provide the vaccine to ANYONE regardless of ability to pay so this vaccine will be available free of charge to EVERYONE.  In the future since Moderna does not require an ultra low freezer we will post if the state changes their criteria as to whom they distribute to and inform you if we receive it.  Although the governor now states 1B can be vaccinated, CDC and San Diego County are currently only vaccinating 1A with few special exceptions such as Corrections.
