1/19: In-Home Supportive Services providers serve one of our community’s most vulnerable populations. We are working closely with our partners to ensure this essential workforce is vaccinated.

  • If you are an IHSS provider, check your mail! You should have received a hard copy letter to your mailing address in the last few days. This letter tells you who to contact to schedule an appointment for your COVID-19 vaccine.
  • If you are an IHSS provider and have not received this letter, contact Connecting Point at (530) 274-5601.
  • IHSS providers are part of Phase 1A, Tier 2.

Thank you to our partners who have helped us get this message out to IHSS providers. Each group that is eligible for the vaccine requires unique outreach and methods to inform individuals that it’s their turn. The roll-out of vaccine to IHSS providers is an example of how we are working closely with partners to meet the individual needs of eligible groups.
