California Triples Goal for Vaccinating Education Workers

Since March 1, the state has been dedicating a minimum of 10 percent of its vaccine supply to K-12 school staff and childcare workers, with a focus on communities disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. In fact, California was among the first states to authorize vaccines for education workers.

In the past week, California nearly tripled its goal for vaccinating education workers. Gov. Gavin Newsom says since the state began dedicating 10 percent of vaccine supply for education workers, more than 200,000 education workers in all 58 counties have been vaccinated, far exceeding the state’s goal of 75,000 vaccines per week.

“This is welcome news for teachers, students and parents, as more and more schools reopen safely across the state,” said Newsom. “We will continue working with our local partners to accelerate this effort in communities across the state so that all school staff have access to a vaccine within weeks.”

So far, 10.5 million vaccinations have been administered in the state. More than one in 10 Californians older than 16 (3.35 million) are fully vaccinated and more than one in four (1.7 million) people 65 and older are fully vaccinated.
