Vaccination Clinics for San Joaquin County Educators

From Feb. 19 through March 3, there were13,028 first doses of COVID-19 vaccine administered at seven clinics hosted by the San Joaquin County Office of Education (SJCOE). Employees from all K-12 public, charter, and private schools in San Joaquin County were invited to be vaccinated.

The vaccination of school employees removes a significant barrier to schools as they seek to re-introduce or expand in-person instruction.

The vaccine clinics were possible through authorization from San Joaquin County Public Health Services (SJCPHS) for the SJCOE to administer the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. The SJCOE, school leaders from across the county, and SJCPHS coordinated to administer vaccine to school staff. School nurses, health aides, and other health care professionals from schools across the county administered vaccine and performed other medical functions at the clinics.

Both doses of the vaccine are necessary to get the most protection from COVID-19. Even after being vaccinated, it is important to continue to wear a face covering, practice physical distancing, and observing other safety practices. Experts are continuing to study whether getting a COVID-19 vaccine will prevent individuals from spreading the virus that causes COVID-19 to other people, even if they don't get sick, themselves.

Vaccine Information and Links

COVID-19 vaccines boost your immune system to prevent you from getting COVID-19 and from spreading it to others. The two COVID-19 vaccines currently authorized for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have been shown to be safe and effective in large-scale clinical trials. In addition, a California workgroup of health experts confirmed that the vaccines have met high standards of both safety and efficacy.

Currently vaccination requires getting two doses. It typically takes a few weeks after the last dose in a series to become fully protected. On the days after taking the vaccine, you may have a sore arm, aches, fatigue or fever, but these are not harmful. These symptoms signal that your immune system is developing protection from the virus. You cannot catch COVID-19 from getting vaccinated. The vaccines do not contain the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

The SJCOE is providing resources and information to assist in educating our community about the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines. Vaccination is one of the most important tools to end the COVID-19 pandemic and for all schools to be able to welcome all students back into the classroom.
