SOlano COunty's COVID-19 Vaccine Plan

Vaccination Plan for Solano Educators

We are off to a great  start!

COVID-19 vaccinations for Solano County school employees began February 26, 2021 with priority given to 19 schools and programs that are currently registered with the California Department of Public Health’s Safe Schools for All website as having an instructional status of “in-person” or “hybrid” learning models. The initial stage of the Solano educator vaccination plan also prioritized school districts with large groups of employees who are currently providing in-person instruction or learning/service support directly to students.

As of 3/2/2021
3,700 school employees received invitations to mass vaccination clinics on 2/26, 2/27 and 3/1.
2,200 school employees elected to get vaccinated at these clinics.
1,500+ vaccinations are being offered to TK-6th grade school employees on 3/4 and 3/5.
1,100 MyTurn codes for vaccination have also been provided to local school districts.

To date, approximately 7,200 Solano school employees have been provided an opportunity to get vaccinated. There are approximately 8,500 school employees working in Solano County. More vaccination clinics are  expected in the coming week. 

SCOE will continue to provide logistical support to Solano Public Health until all Solano County school employees have had an opportunity to get vaccinated.

How Will I know When It's My Turn?

Solano Public Health will continue to determine prioritization and phases based upon the needs of our Solano community as a whole. SCOE will continue to assist public health by working through employers to notify employees about when they are eligible to schedule appointments. School employees will be notified by their  employers or their primary care providers when it is their turn to receive COVID-19 vaccination.

Solano schools update

School districts and charter schools in Benicia, Dixon, Fairfield, and Vallejo are working closely with their governing boards, labor groups, students and families to determine when and how to return to in-person instruction. Some schools have returned to in-person instruction via an elementary school waiver.

Solano County Office of Education as well as every school district, charter school and private school in Solano County and across the state had a January 25, 2021 deadline to notify the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) whether it is serving students in-person or not. This notification and registration is part of the state’s plan to create a school dashboard that would provide information about which school sites are serving students in-person and the extent that in-person services are being provided. Biweekly reporting for learning model status is required of every school in the state. CDPH stated the information will be publicly available on the Safe Schools For All Hub website.

California's safe school for all plan
