SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Governor Gavin Newsom on Wednesday said California will begin notifying residents who are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.
Now, vaccinations are open statewide for people ages 65 and up after the U.S. recommended not to hold second doses.
Up until now, the country had only been vaccinating frontline health care workers and staff/residents of longterm care facilities.
Here are California’s mass COVID-19 vaccination sites
Residents will be able to register for a notification so they know exactly when to head to a vaccination site. The notification system will be out next week.
JUST IN: California will be rolling out a new system next week to let people know if they’re eligible for the vaccine, and if not, register for notification when they are.
The state department of public health said those who are 65+ are now able to get the vaccine.
