We have enjoyed bringing you trustworthy, reliable, and timely information about COVID-19 vaccines. In particular, we have loved sharing how your efforts have made the difference in COVID-19 case rates across our 58 communities! Because of you, countless lives have been saved, people have stayed out of our hospitals, and members of our communities have gotten back to living better, fuller, and safer lives.And what a year it has been! In 2022, we saw many important milestones, including:
The authorization of COVID-19 vaccines for those 6 months – 5 years, The authorization of the Novavax vaccine as a primary series for those 12+ and as a booster dose for those 18+, The approval of the Pfizer vaccine for ages 12-15, The authorization of an updated booster for those 5 and older, and Our newest eligibility: the authorization of updated bivalent doses for those 6 months and older.
Thank you so much for your attention and efforts to protect our communities and keep each other safe. Have a safe holiday season; we’ll see you in the new year. Look how far we have come in California.
