Here's what we know about how to get a vaccine in every Bay Area county:
Alameda County is following the state's guidance when it comes to which groups are allowed to receive the vaccine first. The county has set up a form you can fill out to be notified when your window opens.
Kaiser Permanente is currently vaccinating members who are health care workers, long-term care patients and staff, and emergency medical workers. If you're 75 or older, Kaiser says it will contact you when they can schedule and appointment for you. (More info here.)
Sutter Health has started vaccinating all Phase 1A personnel and those 75 and older. You can visit this site to schedule and appointment.
If you have a different health care provider, Alameda County suggests you contact them directly for information on when you might get a vaccine.
Even with the governor's authorization for those 65 and older to get the vaccine, the county doesn't anticipate vaccinations for that group for weeks.
Contra Costa County
Health care workers and those 65 and older can make an appointment request with the county here. Click here to fill out the form and click here for more information from county on its next steps. Health care workers employed by Kaiser Permanente should schedule an appointment with Kaiser directly.
Health care workers in Marin are being vaccinated by their employers and residents at long-term facilities (like skilled nursing homes) are being vaccinated on site, the county says, as part of Phase 1A of distribution. When it comes to members of the general public, the county says it is prioritizing residents 75 and older as the "next group for vaccination." The county estimates it has about 25,000 residents in that age group. Exactly which populations are being vaccinated in the county at this point and time depends on the health care provider; the county breaks it down group-by-group here.
Interested residents can sign up to be notified when they're eligible here.
Napa County has already started vaccinating residents 75 and older. When that phase is complete, they'll move onto Phase 1B starting with residents 65 and older. If you're interested in receiving a vaccination in that next phase, you can fill out a form here so you can be notified as soon as it's available. More information from the county can be found here.
San Francisco County
Health care workers and nursing home residents are already getting vaccinated in San Francisco. Those 65 and older are also eligible, but have to coordinate an appointment with their health care provider as supply is limited. The city allows you to sign up to be notified when it's your turn to get the vaccine. You can sign up on here. According to the website, you may not get a notification for months (depending on your age and occupation), because vaccines are in limited supply.
San Mateo County
As of Jan. 22, San Mateo County is transitioning from Phase 1A of distribution (health care workers and nursing home residents) to the beginning of Phase 1B (residents 65 and older). Most vaccinations are occurring through health care providers. The county has information on eligibility and sign-up rules for Blue Shield, Kaiser, San Mateo Medical Center, Stanford, Sutter/PAMF, veterans and uninsured residents here.
Santa Clara County
Health care workers and nursing home residents are eligible for the vaccine regardless of provider. The county health system, Kaiser and Palo Alto Medical Foundation have started scheduling appointments for residents 75 and older. Stanford has started vaccinating residents 65 and older. Interested Santa Clara County residents should talk to their health care providers about getting an appointment for a vaccine, the county said. More information on how to schedule an appointment with your provider can be found here.
Solano County is still working its way through Phase 1A of vaccine distribution (see if that applies to you here) and says that anyone who falls into those categories should coordinated getting vaccinated with their medical provider. Residents 75 and older are now eligible; those 65 and older are next in line.
As of Jan. 22 the county was only vaccinating health care workers and nursing home residents, but you can check here to track the county's progress through the phases here. "Individuals who are eligible to be vaccinated should first contact their health care provider or primary care physician for information on how they can receive a vaccine or to make an appointment," Sonoma County says on its site.
