Eventually everyone will be eligible for the vaccine. Because we have a limited supply of vaccine, Nevada County is following the vaccine allocation guidelines developed by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). CDPH is still refining tiers and levels within those tiers that describe who is eligible when.
Congregate care settings such as Skilled Nursing Facilities and Assisted Living Facilities are part of Phase 1A, Tier 1. Nevada County’s facilities have enrolled in the CDC’s Long Term Care Facility (LTCF) Pharmacy Partnership Program to receive vaccine. The vaccine allocation for this program is separate from the allocation coming directly to our county.
