Information from 1/27/2021-

Statewide Update:

This news was released Monday by the California Governor’s Office. San Diego County Health Officials are working through the details of moving to an “age-based” system for vaccine eligibility from the current Tiered Occupation system.

San Diego County Health and Human Services representative Dr. Wooten mentioned Monday she was not necessarily going to abandon the tier system here. County Supervisor Fletcher also mentioned Monday at a press briefing to “hang tight – things may change”. Which may signal they are trying to figure things out.
