Vaccine Information for Healthcare Providers
NOTE: Changes to this page will occur as additional information about the COVID-19 vaccine becomes available. Please check back for updated information.
The COVID-19 vaccine information and resources provided are intended to support healthcare providers and professionals COVID-19 vaccination efforts in Stanislaus County.
Stanislaus County HSA - Public Health Division aims to protect people against COVID-19, which has greatly impacted our communities. The COVID-19 vaccines are just one of many tools that can help keep our community safe. Stanislaus County’s goal is to achieve full community immunity. Until we can ensure everyone is safe from the impact of COVID-19, everyone should continue to mask up, physically distance, and follow all recommendations, even after receiving the vaccine.
Together We Can End the Pandemic!
COVID-19 vaccination has begun and is key to ending the pandemic and getting our communities headed towards a healthier future. A prioritization plan for vaccine allocation was needed because of the initial limited supply of COVID-19 vaccines. Stanislaus County follows the equitable vaccine distribution plan developed at the federal and state level. The plan prioritizes and allocates vaccines to specific priority groups of the population. As more vaccine becomes available from the State more and more groups of people will be authorized to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. More than ever a unified approach is needed, the public health infrastructure alone does not have the human-capital and capacity to vaccinate everyone! Stanislaus County is calling for all healthcare providers and facilities with the ability to receive and administer the COVID-19 vaccine to join the effort.
