Where and How to Get Vaccinated
I know that finding information on scheduling your COVID-19 vaccine can be overwhelming and challenging. My team and I have put together a list of resources that will provide information on how to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine in both Sacramento and Yolo County. Please note that the availability of the COVID-19 vaccine and eligibility criteria are constantly changing as we progress through the vaccination schedule.

Scientists have yet to determine whether or not people who have received the vaccine can still spread the disease to others. Please continue to be safe - wear a mask and social distance - even after you've been vaccinated.
UPDATE FROM THE CA LEGISLATURE:
My colleagues and I are working with the Governor to ensure that our public agencies have all the resources needed to combat COVID-19. Last night, the California Legislature passed up to $1 billion to combat COVID-19 which includes:
- Activating more hospitals and increasing equipment
- More hotel beds for those experiencing homelessness
- Supporting local governments to reduce spread of COVID-19 in homeless population
- Assisting hospitals, nursing homes, and other facilities manage
- Funding strike teams to support senior isolation
This action also ensures local educational agencies receive funding for an entire school year and allocates $100 million to clean school sites and child care facilities.
