Vaccine Information

COVID-19 Information and Resources

We are here to help you during this health crisis

Regional center clients aged 65+, family caregivers of regional center clients of all ages, and service provider employees who provide direct care for regional center clients are now eligible for the COVID vaccination. We strongly advise you to confirm eligibility requirements for each vaccine clinic before signing up. We are also supporting our staff to access the vaccine by providing information about eligibility and options for getting the vaccine. Information about the vaccine is changing rapidly and we will update this page as we learn more.

Upcoming additions to vaccine eligibility include:

  • February 28 – Santa Clara County is opening vaccinations to child care staff.
  • March 15 – Vaccine eligibility in San Mateo County and Santa Clara County is expected to be expanded to some people with disabilities.

Helpful Tips:

  • For family caregivers, it can be helpful and some clinics require a copy of the IPP or IFSP of the person served by the regional center.
  • At all vaccination sites, appointments are required.

Additional vaccine clinics will be announced in local counties and you can also refer to the links at the bottom of this page.
