(Victor Valley)– San Bernardino County has announced the launch of its vaccine information webpage that shares up-to-date information about the phases of our vaccine distribution, as well as critical FAQs and other resource links. On Monday, our county was among the first counties in California to receive doses of the recently approved Moderna vaccine.
Because the initial batches of doses are being rationed, the vaccine is being initially administered to front-line healthcare personnel, followed by residents and staff of long-term care and skilled nursing facilities. First responders will also be among the first people in the county to receive the vaccine.
In Phase 2, distribution of the vaccine will be expanded to include K-12 teachers and staff, childcare workers, critical workers in essential and high-risk industries, residents with comorbidity/underlying conditions, staff and residents of group facilities, and older adults not included in Phase 1. Phase 3 adds young adults, children and workers in industries and occupations not already included, and Phase 4 includes everyone not already inoculated.
