Phases to Get COVID Vaccine

Vaccine will be very limited at first and delivery of the vaccine will be prioritized. Tuolumne County is following federal and state guidelines for priority groups. Public Health is also working with healthcare and community partners to make sure the vaccine is distributed equitably. 

We are currently in Phase 1A of the vaccine distribution plan and are beginning to move into Phase 1B, Tier 1 based on vaccine availability. If you meet the Phase 1A  or 1B, Tier 1 criteria please fill out this vaccine inquiry form: VACCINE INTEREST FORM

Distribution of COVID-19 vaccine will be done in phases. These phases are broadly determined by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) based on their own work and taking into account phases per the National Academies of Sciences. The ACIP advises the CDC on vaccine recommendations. 

A revision to the State guidelines for allocation was provided on January 13, 2021.

The ACIP is tentatively scheduled to hold emergency virtual meetings to further discuss populations in the next phases. As new guidance is released from ACIP and the State, we will update the information provided on this website.**
