4/15/2021 - Residents 16 and over eligible, but vaccine supplies remain limited

The County of San Mateo continues to work to protect public health and safety in response to the novel coronavirus known as COVID-19.

Beginning Thursday, April 15, 2021, all California residents age 16 and older are eligible for COVID-19 vaccines.

This milestone in the fight against the coronavirus, however, comes as vaccine supplies remain limited.

Residents are urged to check for availability and appointments with their health care providers and local pharmacies. California provides a statewide “VaccineFinder” tool.

Residents can also sign up at myturn.ca.gov or call 833-422-4255 to get a COVID-19 vaccine appointment. If appointments are not available, residents can sign up to be notified when they are.

San Mateo County residents are encouraged to also sign up for the County’s vaccine notification tool to receive information about how to make an appointment.

San Mateo County Health continues to focus on small, targeted clinics in communities in need, as vaccine supply remains limited.

The County has also updated and published a list of frequently asked questions about COVID-19 vaccines, eligibility and other useful information.
