COVID-19 Vaccine Information

San Joaquin County IHSS Providers will start being vaccinated and will receive an alert via text, email or phone call based on their contact information in CMIPS. This alert will tell you when and where you can go to get your vaccination. This vaccination clinic will be exclusively for IHSS Providers, no one else. This will be a drive through clinic, and could take about 2 hours to complete the process. Alerts to Providers will be staggered over the next few weeks, so that wait time can be minimized and vaccine supplies will be readily available. The clinic will be staffed by medical professionals including nurses, paramedics, and clerical staff.
