Academics, assist workers, little one care suppliers can now get vaccine by San Bernardino County – Press Enterprise

All teachers, school carers, and licensed child carers living or working in San Bernardino County can be vaccinated against the novel coronavirus starting Tuesday, February 23.

You can now also use the county clinic and appointment system – – to get those vaccinations, though county officials say it might be even easier to go through their school district.

“Combined with the fact that (elementary schools) are now allowed to go back to class if they want, it could help us to offer all teachers a vaccine to get back to normal a little faster,” said the county spokesman , David Worth, on Tuesday.

San Bernardino County on February 3 extended immunization eligibility to teachers in the classroom – but not to other school employees or those who have not yet taught in person. Wert said teachers were asked to take admissions through their respective school districts rather than public clinics that focus on vaccinating seniors.

“Every sector the county has opened is based on vaccine availability and does not want to disrupt an existing sector by adding another group,” he said. “We didn’t want to increase the number of competitions seniors had to go through.”

School districts have worked directly with hospitals that provide vaccines for teachers.

In the last few days, appointments were open longer, often up to the day of the appointment. This is a sharp contrast to before, when each appointment was full within 17 minutes of availability. It’s a sign that most seniors are no longer struggling to get an appointment, Wert said.

Seniors who have problems with the website can call 909-387-3911 for assistance.

Riverside County approved all education workers, including those currently not currently having face-to-face contact with children, in January.

Firefighters, police officers, and those over the age of 65 are also eligible for the vaccine in San Bernardino County.
