COVID-19 Vaccine Update: Californians With Disabilities, Health Conditions & More Eligible

On this edition of Your Call, we get an update on the COVID-19 vaccine rollout in California. According to data published by the CDC, 1 in 8 Americans are now fully vaccinated. About 22% of Californians have now received a dose and over 13 million doses have been administered across the state.

Californians who are 16-64 years old with disabilities and certain high-risk health conditions are now eligible to get a vaccine. Public transit workers, people experiencing homelessness and those in federal immigrant detention centers are also eligible. What questions do you have?
