On Monday March 15th 20201, California will expand coronavirus vaccination eligibility to people with pre-existing conditions.
Anyone who is 16 or older and has serious health conditions, mental or physical, will be eligible to make an appointment to get a Covid-19 vaccine.
Of course, there have been people who have been eligible for weeks, and still can’t get an appointment, due to a lack of vaccine doses in California and a complex reservation process that requires you to be able to navigate numerous websites and answer plenty of questions.
Vaccination sites and clinics will decide if you qualify to get a Covid-19 vaccine.
People who work in public transit are also eligible to get a Covid-19 vaccine on Monday March 15th 2021. So are people who live in what are called high-risk congregate settings.
Four million Californians, who have not been eligible to get a Covid-19 vaccine so far, will be eligible on Monday March 15th 2021.
Their problem will be finding an appointment.
