As the Solano County Public Health department advances its COVID-19 vaccination rollout, the Solano County Office of Education is providing data collection help for the vaccination planning for Solano educators and school support staff.
The news comes as Gov. Gavin Newsom, under pressure to reopen California’s public school classrooms, said on Friday that, starting March 1, the state will reserve 10% of its first doses of COVID-19 vaccines for teachers and classified, or school-support, employees.
But local vaccine supply is currently limited, requiring “a phased approach” to vaccination rollout for Solano school employees, Jennifer Leonard, the SCOE’s director of community affairs and public information, said in a press statement issued Saturday.
