Those aged 16 to 64 whose medical condition puts them at high risk of serious illness or death from COVID-19 will not be asked to show proof of eligibility when they arrive for a vaccination appointment, according to new direction from the State issued this afternoon. They will simply have to sign an attestation verifying they are eligible for vaccination.

The best course of action for those in this high-risk group is still to first check with their health care provider, who might be able to provide vaccination more promptly and without the need for a signed attestation. But those who make appointments through the County’s vaccination website, won’t be asked for any verification other than eligibility other than a signed attestation form, which can be reviewed in English  and in Spanish.

Information about eligibility of people with a disability and/or medical condition can be found on the State website.
