The COVID 19 vaccine distribution in San Mateo is going to take place in three stages. The first stage, Phase 1A covers long term care residents(12,000) and health care workers(38,000) - the two groups that are the most vulnerable to the coronavirus for a combined total of 50,000 doses. Phase 1B Tier 1 is the second stage of vaccination and it covers adults 75 and older (55,000), adults 65 and older (75,000), and essential workers (37,000) such as first responders, food and agriculture workers, and teachers and school staff for a combined total of 167,000 doses. Finally, in the third stage, Phase 1B Tier 2, other essential workers (68,000) and the incarcerated and homeless population (4,000) will be vaccinated for a combined total of 72,000 doses.

According to statistics by San Mateo County, as of 2nd February 2021, 67,292 individuals had been vaccinated out of a county population of 780,273. The total number of doses administered was 82,375 with some people receiving more than one dose of the vaccine. 15,083 people completed the vaccination series. Of the vaccine doses administered 45,312 were administered the Pfizer vaccine while 37,063 were administered the Moderna vaccine. Most San Mateo County residents will receive the vaccine from their primary care provider. The biggest ones are Kaiser Permanente, Sutter Health, and Standford Health. The aforementioned providers have partnerships with stores such as CVS and Walgreens to provide vaccine doses on their premises. The county appeals to citizens to contact their health care provider for the most accurate and up to date information about when, where, and how they can expect to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. The county has made the equitable distribution of the vaccine in communities of color, low-income communities, older adults, and other impacted populations a top priority.

The COVID-19 vaccines by Pfizer and Moderna have both been authorized by the FDA and have been shown to be safe and effective in clinical trials. It takes a few weeks after the last dose in a series to become fully protected. There might be some minor symptoms immediately following the vaccine dose such as a sore arm, aches, fatigue, and fever. These are temporary and are a sign that the body’s immune system is building up an ability to fight the virus. The first two vaccines available have shown 94% efficacy against protecting a person from COVID-19. The county health officials warn that even though the vaccine does its job, it is still important to follow all safety protocols such as social distancing and wearing masks to stay safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

When asked about its attempts at connecting seniors to vaccine providers, a spokesperson for Senior Care Center says “We are trying our best to help as many senior citizens as we can in this time of crisis. We understand that our clients belong to the target demographic that is most vulnerable to the coronavirus. We are doing our best to guide them to the facilities that might offer COVID-19 vaccines. We are keeping a close eye on all vaccine-related communication from the government and will be the first to let our clients know if any new developments occur. We are confident that with a little cooperation and spirit we can get through these difficult times.”
