Feb 25, 2021 — San Diego County announced it’s going to open COVID-19 vaccinations to a half million more people in the next eligible group (Phase 1B-Tier 1). That includes teachers and staff at K-12 schools and universities, and food and agriculture, childcare and non-medical emergency service workers. 

The effort, said Supervisor Nathan Fletcher during the county’s Wednesday press conference, should lead to safe reopening of schools, which San Diego Unified set for April 12. K-12 personnel will be contacted by a third-party called VEBA that’s partnering with the county to coordinate vaccinations in that sector.
