Yahoo! Next step- teachers! I wish they would prioritize the already in-person teachers, but look forward to getting my vaccine, nonetheless!

I just answered my own question: PAMF is still only health care workers and those over 75.

This is a very misleading headline. I hope you will fix it and stop spreading misinformation . If you go to PAMF or Kaiser you have to be over 75 with no indication when they might begin over 65. The County sites are only for people that do not get health care at PAMF or Kaiser. It is very unfair that it is not equal access. People who have health insurance and pay a lot each month are not able to get the Vaccine but if you don't have health insurance you can.

Palo Verde Parent- the dashboard I’m looking at says Kaiser does have vaccines for 65+. I also just made a vaccine appt at Stanford Healthcare for my mom, who is 69. PAMF is behind.
