Vaccinating San Bernardino County (as of June 8, 2021)

 

 

 

Doses administered to county residents 1,559,392
County residents fully vaccinated 723,004
Percentage of 12+ residents any vaccination 48.8%
Percentage of 12+ residents fully vaccinated 40%

California Reopens June 15 with Vaccinations Up, and Infections Down

San Bernardino County, along with the rest of the state, will fully reopen its economy on June 15 — eliminating various restrictions and saying farewell to the color-coded county tier system we’ve been living under for the past several months.

Beginning next Tuesday, everyday life here will largely return to pre-COVID norms. Restaurants, bars, retail stores, theaters, hotels and entertainment centers may return to usual operations — meaning no capacity limitations and no requirements for social distancing.

All of California’s restrictions on travel outside the state will be lifted, and the state says it is not considering creating a vaccine passport.

“This is a day we’ve all been waiting for,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “While we have been through one of the most challenging periods in our County’s history, I’m very proud of the way we’ve pulled together as a community — with everyone from hospital workers and grocery clerks to local business owners working together to protect each other and overcome this pandemic.”

The question of masks

On June 15, California will align with the revised mask guidelines recently announced by the CDC. This states: “Fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.”

This means while fully vaccinated individuals won’t need to wear face coverings in most indoor and outdoor settings, they will still be required to wear a mask on planes, buses, trains, airports and transportation stations. Other places where vaccinated people will still need to wear masks, include health care settings, prisons, homeless shelters and schools. In addition, private businesses may choose to continue requiring facial coverings.

And of course, anyone is free to wear a mask anytime they’d like, especially when around children and others who are vulnerable or not yet eligible for vaccination.

Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated individuals will still be required to wear facial coverings outside of their home. Unvaccinated Californians, can only take off their masks in public when they’re outside and can maintain 6 feet of distance with others.

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health, better known as Cal/OSHA, is still mulling what the masking rules will be for workplaces in the state starting on Tuesday.

Also, what the state deems “mega events” — outdoor live events attended by more than 10,000 people and indoor events with 5,000 or more attendees — still face some restrictions. Those attending indoor events must either be vaccinated or have recently achieved a negative COVID-19 test. The same guidelines are recommended (though not mandated) for outdoor events. Businesses and venue operators may require proof or self-attestation at point of registration, during ticket purchase or on the day of the event prior to entry into the venue. The mega event requirements will remain in place until October 1.

“Operation Sneakers and Vaccine Speakers” Canvassing Campaign Hitting 42 Targeted Neighborhoods

The County has launched a hyperlocal outreach campaign largely focusing on residents in traditionally underserved communities. The campaign, dubbed “Operation Sneakers and Vaccine Speakers,” features several street teams that are canvassing areas where residents have been at most risk of COVID-19 infection.

Operation Sneakers is designed to bring bilingual information and facts about the COVID-19 vaccines to residents, and early results are already showing that many people appreciate the opportunity to talk about the safety and efficacy of the vaccines before making the decision to get protected. On just their first day, the teams reported more than 1,598 positive interactions and conversations with the community.

“We want to make sure people understand that getting vaccinated is both easy and convenient,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “Residents will learn that vaccination sites are now located literally just down the street, in their neighborhood. We’ll even provide transportation to those who need it. Plus, the shots are absolutely free and there is no requirement for insurance coverage.”

Some of the locations being canvassed include neighborhoods, shopping centers, schools, parks, libraries and even supermarkets. The campaign will run through mid-June.

All County vaccination sites are staffed by public health professionals and others well-versed in the issues surrounding COVID-19 and the vaccines. Spanish-speaking representatives are on hand to support communications with non-English speaking residents.

Metrolink Offers Free Tickets as Incentive to Get Vaccinated

Building on a campaign to vaccinate Metrolink riders at different stations in San Bernardino County, those riders choosing to get a vaccine dose will now also receive a free, one-day roundtrip ticket valued at $20. The program will be running at different stations through July.

Metrolink will be providing Pfizer COVID-19 vaccinations from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Montclair, Upland and Fontana stations through June 12 and second dose appointments will be made when the first dose is administered. The Pfizer or the Johnson & Johnson one-dose vaccine will be offered at these locations.

From June 15 through June 19, participating stations will be Rialto, Downtown San Bernardino, and San Bernardino Santa Fe Depot stations. More stations, as well as nearby bus depots, will be announced later.

“This is a great opportunity for busy commuters and anyone who lives near these stations to protect themselves and those they care about from COVID-19,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman.

County Wins National Awards for COVID-19 Pandemic Response

Innovative public service programs, many of them aimed at addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, earned San Bernardino County a record 60 National Association of Counties 2021 Achievement Awards, the most awards won since 2019 when the County claimed 52 NACo awards.

A majority of the NACo Achievement Awards recognized programs and resources that helped our residents during the global COVID-19 pandemic and vaccination effort, including this County Update, which promoted the #SBCountyTogether bilingual public information and outreach campaign. The COVID-Compliant Business Partnership Program, the COVID-19 data dashboard, the nursing home task force, and our alternative care sites also won NACo awards.

The County Public Health Department and its staff, who were on the front lines of the battle against COVID-19, won 14 of the awards, the most of any County department. The Public Health data team developed and maintain the COVID-19 data dashboard, which shows daily information on COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, deaths, the status of the virus in the county’s cities and towns and schools along with testing and vaccination metrics.

Three County departments, the County Administrative Office, the Economic Development Department and the Innovation and Technology Department, won awards for the COVID-Compliant Business Partnership Program, which provided $30 million in CARES Act funding to help local businesses and nonprofits comply with COVID-19 health orders to keep their employees and customers safe.

“I am extremely proud of our County staff for being creative and using technology to get our residents and businesses through these past 15 months,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “County staff worked long hours through a lot of uncertainty to try to get ahead of the virus and keep us all safe. I am pleased to see the great work they do each and every day recognized on the national stage.”

A full list of the County’s NACo Awards may be viewed here.

¿Cómo será California después del 15 de junio?

California reabre el 15 de junio con las vacunas subiendo y las infecciones a la baja

El condado de San Bernardino, junto con el resto del estado, reabrirá completamente su economía el 15 de junio, eliminando varias restricciones y despidiendo el sistema de niveles del condado codificado por colores bajo el que hemos estado viviendo durante los últimos meses.

A partir del próximo martes, la vida cotidiana aquí volverá en gran medida a las normas pre-COVID. Los restaurantes, bares, tiendas minoristas, teatros, hoteles y centros de entretenimiento pueden regresar a las operaciones habituales, lo que significa que no hay limitaciones de capacidad ni requisitos para el distanciamiento social.

Todas las restricciones de California a los viajes fuera del estado se levantarán, y el estado dice que no está considerando crear un pasaporte de vacuna.

“Este es un día que todos hemos estado esperando”, dijo el presidente de la Junta de Supervisores, Curt Hagman. “Si bien hemos pasado por uno de los períodos más desafiantes en la historia de nuestro condado, estoy muy orgulloso de la forma en que nos hemos unido como comunidad, con todos, desde trabajadores de hospitales y empleados de supermercados hasta propietarios de negocios locales trabajando juntos para protegernos unos a otros y superar esta pandemia”.

La cuestión de las mascarillas

El 15 de junio, California se alineará con las pautas revisadas de máscaras recientemente anunciadas por los CDC. Esto establece: “Las personas completamente vacunadas pueden reanudar sus actividades sin usar una máscara o distanciamiento físico, excepto cuando lo requieran las leyes, reglas y regulaciones federales, estatales, locales, tribales o territoriales, incluida la orientación comercial y laboral local”.

Esto significa que si bien las personas completamente vacunadas no necesitarán usar coberturas faciales en la mayoría de los entornos interiores y exteriores, aún se les pedirá que usen una máscara en aviones, autobuses, trenes, aeropuertos y estaciones de transporte. Otros lugares donde las personas vacunadas todavía tendrán que usar máscaras, incluyen entornos de atención médica, prisiones, refugios para personas sin hogar y escuelas. Además, las empresas privadas pueden optar por seguir exigiendo coberturas faciales.

Y, por supuesto, cualquier persona es libre de usar una máscara en cualquier momento que desee, especialmente cuando se trata de niños y otras personas que son vulnerables o aún no son elegibles para la vacunación.

Las personas no vacunadas o parcialmente vacunadas aún deberán usar coberturas faciales fuera de su hogar. Los californianos no vacunados, solo pueden quitarse las mascarillas en público cuando están afuera y pueden mantener 6 pies de distancia con otros.

La División de Seguridad y Salud Ocupacional de California, mejor conocida como Cal/OSHA, todavía está reflexionando sobre cuáles serán las reglas de uso de máscaras para los lugares de trabajo en el estado a partir del martes.

Además, lo que el estado considera “mega eventos” —eventos en vivo al aire libre a los que asisten más de 10,000 personas y eventos en interiores con 5,000 o más asistentes— aún enfrentan algunas restricciones. Quienes asistan a eventos en interiores deben estar vacunados o haber obtenido recientemente una prueba negativa de COVID-19. Se recomiendan las mismas pautas (aunque no son obligatorias) para eventos al aire libre.  Las empresas y los operadores del lugar pueden requerir prueba o auto-certificación en el punto de registro, durante la compra de boletos o el día del evento antes de la entrada en el lugar. Los requisitos del megaevento permanecerán vigentes hasta el 1 de octubre.

Campaña de campaña “Operación Sneakers y Oradores de Vacunas” que afecta a 42 vecindarios seleccionados

El Condado ha lanzado una campaña de alcance hiperlocal que se centra en gran medida en los residentes en comunidades tradicionalmente desatendidas. La campaña, apodada “Operación Sneakers y Oradores de Vacunas”, presenta a varios equipos callejeros que están rastreando las áreas donde los residentes han estado en mayor riesgo de infección por COVID-19.

Operación Sneakers está diseñado para llevar información bilingüe y datos sobre las vacunas Covid-19 a los residentes, y los primeros resultados ya están mostrando que muchas personas aprecian la oportunidad de hablar sobre la seguridad y eficacia de las vacunas antes de tomar la decisión de protegerse. Solo en su primer día, los equipos reportaron más de 1.598 interacciones positivas y conversaciones con la comunidad.

“Queremos asegurarnos de que la gente entienda que vacunarse es fácil y conveniente”, dijo el presidente de la Junta de Supervisores, Curt Hagman. “Los residentes aprenderán que los sitios de vacunación ahora están ubicados literalmente al pie de la calle, en su vecindario. Incluso proporcionaremos transporte a aquellos que lo necesiten. Además, las vacunas son absolutamente gratuitas y no hay ningún requisito de cobertura de seguro”.

Algunos de los lugares que se están sondeando incluyen vecindarios, centros comerciales, escuelas, parques, bibliotecas e incluso supermercados. La campaña se extenderá hasta mediados de junio.

Todos los sitios de vacunación del Condado cuentan con profesionales de la salud pública y otros bien versados en los problemas relacionados con Covid-19 y las vacunas. Los representantes de habla hispana están disponibles para apoyar las comunicaciones con los residentes que no hablan inglés.

Metrolink ofrece boletos gratuitos como incentivo para vacunarse

Sobre la base de una campaña para vacunar a los pasajeros de Metrolink en diferentes estaciones en el condado de San Bernardino, aquellos pasajeros que elijan obtener una dosis de vacuna ahora también recibirán un boleto gratuito de ida y vuelta de un día valorado en $20. El programa se llevará a cabo en diferentes estaciones hasta julio.

Metrolink proporcionará a Pfizer vacunas contra el COVID-19 de 11 a.m. a 6 p.m. en las estaciones de Montclair, Upland y Fontana hasta el 12 de junio y se realizarán citas de segunda dosis cuando se administre la primera dosis. La vacuna de una dosis de Pfizer o Johnson & Johnson se ofrecerá en estos lugares.

Del 15 al 19 de junio, las estaciones participantes serán las estaciones Rialto, el centro de San Bernardino y San Bernardino Santa Fe Depot. Más adelante se anunciarán más estaciones, así como depósitos de autobuses cercanos.

“Esta es una gran oportunidad para que los viajeros ocupados y cualquier persona que viva cerca de estas estaciones se protejan a sí mismos y a aquellos que les importan del COVID-19”, dijo el presidente de la Junta de Supervisores, Curt Hagman.

El condado gana premios nacionales por respuesta a la pandemia de COVID-19

Los innovadores programas de servicio público, muchos de ellos destinados a abordar la pandemia de COVID-19, le valieron al condado de San Bernardino un récord de 60 Premios al Logro 2021 de la Asociación Nacional de Condados, la mayor cantidad de premios ganados desde 2019, cuando el Condado reclamó 52 premios NACo.

La mayoría de los NACo Achievement Awards reconocieron los programas y recursos que ayudaron a nuestros residentes durante la pandemia global de COVID-19 y el esfuerzo de vacunación, incluida esta Actualización del Condado, que promovió la #SBCountyTogether campaña bilingüe de información pública y divulgación. El Programa de Asociación Empresarial compatible con COVID, el tablero de datos de COVID-19, el grupo de trabajo de hogares de ancianos y nuestros sitios de cuidado alternativo también ganaron los premios NACo.

El Departamento de Salud Pública del Condado y su personal, que estuvieron en la primera línea de la batalla contra el COVID-19, ganaron 14 de los premios, la mayor cantidad de cualquier departamento del Condado. El equipo de datos de Salud Pública desarrolló y mantiene el tablero de datos de COVID-19, que muestra información diaria sobre los casos de COVID-19, las hospitalizaciones, las muertes, el estado del virus en las ciudades y pueblos y escuelas del condado junto con las métricas de pruebas y vacunación.

Tres departamentos del Condado, la Oficina Administrativa del Condado, el Departamento de Desarrollo Económico y el Departamento de Innovación y Tecnología, ganaron premios por el Programa de Asociación Comercial compatible con COVID, que proporcionó $ 30 millones en fondos de la Ley CARES para ayudar a las empresas locales y organizaciones sin fines de lucro a cumplir con las órdenes de salud de COVID-19 para mantener seguros a sus empleados y clientes.

“Estoy extremadamente orgulloso de nuestro personal del Condado por ser creativo y usar la tecnología para llevar a nuestros residentes y negocios a través de estos últimos 15 meses”, dijo el presidente de la Junta de Supervisores, Curt Hagman. “El personal del condado trabajó largas horas a través de mucha incertidumbre para tratar de adelantarse al virus y mantenernos a todos a salvo. Me complace ver el gran trabajo que hacen todos y cada uno de los días reconocido en el escenario nacional”.

Board adopts 2021-22 County budget with eye toward economic recovery

The Board of Supervisors adopted the 2021-22 County budget on Tuesday, which invests in San Bernardino County’s communities, residents and businesses to help them recover from the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year, the $7.6 billion budget recognizes the relative stability of County revenues and plans to keep significant resources available to address any possible future economic challenges.  The Board has maintained its long-standing fiscally prudent approach by setting aside an additional $41 million towards its General Purpose Reserve and is projecting to end 2021-22 with a $19 million General Fund operating surplus.

“We are being fiscally responsible with your tax dollars and we are listening to your priorities,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “We are putting resources in the right direction and this budget gives us the opportunity to move this county forward.”

While not included in the initial recommended budget, the Board also took action today to adopt a plan for the use of $423.5 million of federal funding from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA).  This significant resource will help the County continue to respond to the pandemic, help with economic recovery and infrastructure and improve government operations.

“The 2021-22 Recommended Budget represents a significant step toward recovery from the pandemic,” Chief Executive Officer Leonard X. Hernandez wrote in a letter to the Board. “Through the investment of available financing sources, this budget will both strengthen the County’s fiscal stability while expanding and enhancing the County’s ability to provide high-quality services to our residents and investors.”

To address community concerns, the Board allocated $10.4 million over the next several years to help combat illegal marijuana cultivation, short-term rental oversight, illegal dumping and graffiti abatement, snow play nuisance abatement, illegal vending in problem areas and illegal trucking activities.

“This budget reflects your commitment to public safety in the county,” said San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon, citing the issue of illegal marijuana cultivation in the county.

The post-pandemic desire for outdoor activities prompted an additional $5 million investment in the County’s Regional Parks with capital improvements planned at Glen Helen, Yucaipa, Prado, Guasti, and Mojave Narrows regional parks.

Fighting homelessness remains a priority in the County budget. There is a renewed focus and staffing added to the Homeless Strategic Plan, which aligns the county’s homeless population with health and housing services provided by the County and its partners.

In addition, technological upgrades are due for County systems and online services that help residents and businesses receive a necessary and evolving level of service that is timely and convenient and helps the County generate revenue to continue serving the public’s needs.

Board applauds ‘American Idol’ winner Chayce Beckham

American Idol Winner Chayce Beckham of Apple Valley

The Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution Tuesday congratulating Apple Valley’s Chayce Beckham for becoming the first San Bernardino County resident to win ‘American Idol.’

The 24-year-old is a native of the High Desert and the first winner of American Idol from Southern California.

“I am extremely proud to hear that our first ever Southern Californian American Idol winner comes from San Bernardino County,” said First District Supervisor Col. Paul Cook (Ret.). “Congratulations Chayce, we are all proud of you and excited to see you embark on this new journey.”

Beckham was born in Victorville and lived in Hesperia and Apple Valley where he attended Vanguard Preparatory School and Sitting Bull Academy. He got his first guitar when he was three years old. Before Idol, Beckham and his friends formed a band called the Sinking Sailors performing punk, reggae and funk music and they frequently played local gigs. He last worked as a heavy machine operator for United Rentals.

The gravel-voiced country singer and songwriter wowed Idol judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan and ultimately viewers at home who voted him the winner of the popular singing competition. As the 2021 American Idol winner, Beckham takes home a cash prize and most importantly, a record deal of his own.

While on American Idol, Beckham wrote and recorded his own hit single, “23” which rose to No. 1 on iTunes Country charts and No. 2 on iTunes Top 10 songs.

A year ago, Beckham decided to audition for American Idol at the urging of his family.

County wins record 60 awards from National Association of Counties

Innovative public service programs, many of them aimed at addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, earned San Bernardino County a record 60 National Association of Counties 2021 Achievement Awards, the most awards won since 2019 when the County claimed 52 NACo awards.

A majority of the NACo Achievement Awards recognized programs and resources that helped our residents during the global COVID-19 pandemic and vaccination effort, including the #SBCountyTogether bilingual public information and outreach campaign, the COVID-Compliant Business Partnership Program, the COVID-19 data dashboard, the nursing home task force, and our alternative care sites.

The County Public Health Department and its staff, who were on the front lines of the battle against COVID-19, won 14 2021 NACo Awards, the most of any County department. The Public Health data team developed and maintain the COVID-19 data dashboard, which shows daily information on COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, deaths, the status of the virus in the county’s cities and towns and schools along with testing and vaccination metrics.

Two County departments, the Economic Development Department and the Innovation and Technology Department won awards for the COVID-Compliant Business Partnership Program, which provided $30 million in CARES Act funding to help local businesses and nonprofits comply with COVID-19 health orders to keep their employees and customers safe.

“I am extremely proud of our County staff for being creative and using technology to get our residents and businesses through these past 15 months,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “County staff worked long hours through a lot of uncertainty to try to get ahead of the virus and keep us all safe. I am pleased to see the great work they do each and every day recognized on the national stage.”

Since 2010, San Bernardino County has won 441 Achievement Awards from NACo, an organization that honors innovative, effective county government programs that enhance services for residents.

Nationally, NACo Achievement Awards are given in 18 different categories that reflect the variety of services counties provide. San Bernardino County won awards in 14 categories.  This year, NACo reviewed 884 entries from counties in 28 states.

County leaders celebrate grand opening of new Behavioral Health building

Today, top local, state, and national leaders gathered in San Bernardino to celebrate the grand opening of a new 11,375-square-foot facility serving the Juvenile Justice Program (JJP) within San Bernardino County’s Department of Behavioral Health. The facility will serve an estimated 400 to 900 families per year, advancing the JJP’s mission to provide a comprehensive and effective continuum of adolescent behavioral health care for justice-involved youth, in or out of custody, who have mental illness.

“The Juvenile Justice Program reduces recidivism, promotes wellness and recovery, and enhances the quality of life in our county,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “Also, this project was developed in a Qualified Opportunity Zone, which benefits both the public and private sectors and creates vital community benefit. The value of bringing new investment to underserved communities underscores the importance of this program.”

Vice Chair Dawn Rowe

“This new space will serve as a key resource for many deserving individuals and families in the region. It will be instrumental in giving youth and their families hope for a better future by promoting wellness and resiliency,” said Board of Supervisors Vice Chair Dawn Rowe. The facility is located within Vice Chair Rowe’s Third Supervisorial District.

The new office space will be located proximate to the San Bernardino Children’s Assessment Center, Juvenile Court, Probation Office, and several schools. This new location will help facilitate collaboration as JJP staff members conduct community outreach and serve justice involved youth and their families.

“The critical need for outpatient behavioral health services has never been greater, especially when we are addressing restorative justice for youth living in this community. This is a great day for our youth, for equity and for our San Bernardino County at large,” said Dr. Veronica Kelley, Director for the Department of Behavioral Health.

Notably, the facility is located in a Qualified Opportunity Zone (QOZ) census tract – one of 57 Opportunity Zone tracts in the County – a designation created in 2017 via bipartisan legislation co-sponsored by U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) and U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ). Under the initiative, investors who make long-term investments in QOZ communities are eligible for a series of tax benefits. The neighborhood is amongst the most distressed in the nation, scoring a 92.2 out of 100 on the Economic Innovation Group’s Distressed Communities Index. Further, its youngest residents are disconnected from vital services and are not well-positioned to reach their full potential. The Child Opportunity Index finds that neighborhood conditions scored very low for the census tract, suppressing the potential for local children and young adults to achieve upward mobility.

U.S. Sen. Tim Scott

“Already millions of Americans have seen and benefited from the incredible potential of Opportunity Zones across the nation,” said Senator Tim Scott, who attended and spoke at the event. “I am amazed by the great work being done here at the San Bernardino Medical Center and look forward to hearing the success stories that come from their efforts.”

The project was highlighted as a national best practice in a May 2020 report by the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council, which included several case studies of Opportunity Zone investments across the country.

“Today is another sign of the growing promise of San Bernardino,” said San Bernardino Mayor John Valdivia. “First and foremost, this new facility will help us better meet the needs of youth and families in our community. More broadly, the 500+ jobs created by the project and millions in new private investment generated are proof positive that San Bernardino is open for business and poised for growth. I commend my colleagues at the County for reaching this milestone, and thank Senator Scott, RevOZ Capital, and Sudweeks Development for their commitment to our community.”

Opportunity Zone capital proved essential to the building’s viability and construction. In 2018, San Bernardino County selected California-based developer Sudweeks Development and Investment Co. (SDIC) to finance and build a new government office building. The county pre-leased the building for 15 years. However, SDIC found that potential equity partners were not willing to invest in such a highly-distressed community, even though the long-term commitment from the county (an S&P rated AA+ tenant) reduced the risk of the project. Fortunately, RevOZ Capital, a nationally-recognized Opportunity Zone fund, partnered with SDIC and the County.  RevOZ and its affiliates made a 10-year investment to support construction of the San Bernardino Medical Center

“This project embodies so much of what RevOZ aspires to achieve,” said Lisa Merage, RevOZ Capital Managing Partner and Chair of the RevOZ Social Impact Council. “We believe deeply both in the potential of emerging communities like San Bernardino, and in the potential of Opportunity Zone investments to create real economic, financial, and community benefits. We thank all of our partners for their support on this project, and are excited to explore further opportunities in the community to create economic and social impact.”

“Public–Private Partnerships have been the cornerstone of our business for the past several years,” said Brandon Sudweeks, Managing Member of SDIC. “Our team truly enjoys bringing together public, private, and community interests to address deep, unmet needs. I’m grateful to the County for their collaboration, and particularly thankful to Senator Scott and RevOZ for seeing the potential of Opportunity Zone financing to bring this project to fruition. Completing such a timely and important project – especially in light of the challenges posed by Covid over the past year – is a credit to our team and a tremendous source of pride.”

County staff anticipate completing final preparatory activities in the coming days and open the facility to patients later this month. For more information on the DBH Juvenile Justice Program, please visit www.sbcounty.gov/dbh.

The Juvenile Justice Program (JJP) is a collaboration of the San Bernardino County Probation Department and the Department of Behavioral Health. It is a team entrusted by the public to provide quality mental health services to juveniles in the justice system and to their families in an effort to reduce recidivism and enhance the quality of their lives. Juvenile Justice Program services are only available to minors involved in the San Bernardino County juvenile justice system who are referred to the program through the Probation Department and Juvenile Court system.

Doses administered to county residents 1,506,340
County residents fully vaccinated 690.934
Percentage of 12+ residents any vaccination 47.6%
Percentage of 12+ residents fully vaccinated 38.2%

County Launches “Operation Sneakers and Vaccine Speakers” Campaign

Door-to-Door Canvassing Effort Promotes Neighborhood Vaccine Sites, Ease of Access

The County has introduced a new, hyperlocal outreach campaign largely focusing on residents in traditionally underserved communities. The campaign, dubbed “Operation Sneakers and Vaccine Speakers,” will highlight conveniently located, neighborhood-based vaccination sites within those communities while providing additional information about the County’s vaccination program.

The campaign will also help promote the state’s new $116.5 million, multi-faceted vaccine-incentive effort encouraging Californians to get vaccinated before the state’s reopening on June 15 (see related story).

“We want to make sure people understand that getting vaccinated is both easy and convenient,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “Residents will learn that vaccination sites are now located literally just down the street, in their neighborhood. We’ll even provide transportation to those who need it. Plus, the shots are absolutely free and there is no requirement for insurance coverage.”

Each vaccination site will be staffed by public health professionals and others well-versed in the issues surrounding COVID-19 and the vaccines. Spanish-speaking representatives will be on hand to support communications with non-English speaking residents, and no reservation is required.

“This is a real ‘boots-on-the-ground’ campaign to remind people that getting protected against COVID-19 is an easy, straightforward process,” said Hagman.  “Our goal is simply to inform people about the availability and accessibility of vaccines. We are doing everything we can to remove any obstacles that might discourage residents from getting vaccinated.”

The County has already begun printing a variety of informational materials (flyers, door hangers, posters, etc.) to support the campaign. Staff training, which will focus on customer service, safety, logistics and appropriate messaging, will begin June 4. The campaign itself will launch on June 7 and run for approximately 10 days.

Most of the vaccination sites are open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 am to 6 pm. Please check here for more information on vaccination sites and operating hours.

Metrolink Makes Vaccination Part of Your Daily Commute

Many San Bernardino County residents want to vaccinated, but haven’t done so yet because they can’t make time in their busy schedules to find and visit a vaccination clinic.

Metrolink is addressing that need by partnering with public health professionals to provide Pfizer COVID-19 vaccinations at Metrolink stations from Montclair through San Bernardino. The first transit station vaccination sites will operate next week from June 8 through Saturday, June 12 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Montclair, Upland and Fontana Metrolink sites.

“This is a great opportunity for busy commuters and anyone who lives near these stations to protect themselves and those they care about from COVID-19,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman.

200 doses of the Pfizer vaccine will be available at each site each day. The sites will operate again on June 29 through July 3 to administer.

The program will be extended to the Rialto, Downtown San Bernardino, and San Bernardino Santa Fe Depot stations from June 15 through June 19 and again from July 6 through July 10.

The Montclair Station is located at 5091 Richton St. The Upland station is at 300 East A Street, and the Fontana station is at 16777 Orange Way.

New Interactive Online Map Shares Vaccination Sites Near You

Residents Can See Both Stationary and Mobile Pop-up Sites

In addition to 14 ongoing County stationary sites distributing doses every week from Tuesday through Saturday, San Bernardino County residents can also use a new interactive map to find any of the mobile, pop-up events happening almost daily from the valley to the deserts.

This online map dashboard shows the sites and dates of all upcoming mobile vaccination events (best seen in Chrome). The stars on the map indicate the stationary vaccine sites throughout our county.

Along with the mobile and stationary sites, there are dozens of hospitals, health centers, clinics and pharmacies that are offering vaccine doses.

“We have reached a point where those complacent or hesitant about getting a COVID-19 vaccine need to take action,” said County Public Health Officer Dr. Michael Sequeira. “Delaying getting your vaccine is an unnecessary risk. There is no reason not to get this shot while there is a possibility of serious illness, long-term problems or even death.”

Ongoing County-operated sites

All 14 County-operated sites operate Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. All sites are offering the Pfizer vaccine and both appointments and walk-ups are accepted.

Hospitals, health centers, clinics and pharmacies

Individuals can use the County website or go through their physician groups associated with Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, Loma Linda University Health, San Antonio Regional Hospital, Mountains Community Hospital, Redlands Community Hospital, Bear Valley Community Healthcare or the San Bernardino Clinic.

In addition, Moderna vaccines are being given at the San Bernardino County Health Centers in San Bernardino, Ontario, Hesperia and Adelanto.

Finally, there are participating pharmacies administering doses throughout the county, including Albertsons, Costco, Ralphs, Rite-Aid, Sav-On, Vons, Walgreens and Walmart, as well as many independent pharmacies. Individuals should check directly with their preferred, neighborhood pharmacy, or again, check the list at sbcovid19.com/vaccine.

Get Vaccinated and Win Cash, Receive $50 Gift Cards

This Friday, June 4, anyone who has received at least one shot of the COVID-19 vaccine will have a chance to be among 15 Californians randomly selected to win $50,000. Another 15 people will be drawn on June 11, and finally, on June 15, 10 lucky state residents will each win $1.5 million/

This is all part of a $116.5 million “Vax for the Win” incentive plan announced last week, designed to encourage more people to get their dose. In addition, the next 2 million residents who get vaccinated will receive a $50 online or grocery gift card.

“There are a lot of San Bernardino County residents who want to get vaccinated but haven’t because they have busy lives and higher priorities,” said Board of Supervisors Curt Hagman. “Hopefully the chance at winning a serious amount of state money will drive them to their nearest vaccination center.”

All Californians 12 years or older are eligible. The State will place the winnings of those under 18 into a savings account until they reach adulthood. Program details can be found on the State’s Vax for the Win website.

Becoming eligible for these winnings is easy in San Bernardino County. All 14 County-operated sites (listed above) operate Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. All sites are offering the Pfizer vaccine and both appointments and walk-ups are accepted.

There are also dozens of hospitals, health centers, clinics, pharmacies and now even high schools (see accompanying story), that are offering vaccine doses. Residents can check the list at sbcovid19.com/vaccine.

In addition to the ongoing County stationary sites, county residents can also use a new interactive map to find any of the mobile, pop-up events happening almost daily from the valley to the deserts. Visitors to this online map dashboard shows the sites and dates of all upcoming mobile vaccination events (best seen in Chrome).

Vacunación del Condado de San Bernardino (desde el 2 de junio de 2021)

 

 

 

Dosis administradas a los residentes del condado 1,506,340
Residentes del condado totalmente vacunados 690.934
Porcentaje de 12 años o más del condado cualquier vacuna 47.6%
Porcentaje de residentes 12 años o más totalmente vacunados  38.2%

El condado lanza la campaña “Operación Zapatillas de Deporte y Oradores de Vacunas”,

El esfuerzo de puerta a puerta promueve los sitios de vacunación en el vecindario y la facilidad de acceso

El condado ha introducido una nueva campaña de alcance hiperlocal que se centra principalmente en los residentes de comunidades tradicionalmente desatendidas. La campaña, denominada “Operación Zapatillas de Deporte y Oradores de Vacunas”, destacará los lugares de vacunación ubicados convenientemente en los vecindarios dentro de esas comunidades, al tiempo que proporcionará información adicional sobre el programa de vacunación del condado.

La campaña también ayudará a promover el nuevo esfuerzo de incentivos de vacunas multifacético de $ 116.5 millones del estado para animar a los californianos a vacunarse antes de la reapertura del estado el 15 de junio (vea la historia relacionada).

“Queremos asegurarnos de que la gente comprenda que vacunarse es fácil y conveniente”, dijo el Presidente de la Junta de Supervisores, Curt Hagman. “Los residentes aprenderán que los sitios de vacunación ahora están ubicados literalmente al final de la calle, en su vecindario. Incluso proporcionaremos transporte a quienes lo necesiten. Además, las vacunas son absolutamente gratuitas y no hay ningún requisito de cobertura de seguro “.

Cada sitio de vacunación contará con profesionales de la salud pública y otros expertos en los temas relacionados con COVID-19 y las vacunas. Los representantes que hablan español estarán a su disposición para apoyar las comunicaciones con residentes que no hablan inglés, y no se requiere reserva.

“Esta es una verdadera campaña de ‘botas sobre el terreno’ para recordarle a la gente que protegerse contra COVID-19 es un proceso sencillo y directo”, dijo Hagman. “Nuestro objetivo es simplemente informar a las personas sobre la disponibilidad y accesibilidad de las vacunas. Estamos haciendo todo lo posible para eliminar cualquier obstáculo que pueda desalentar a los residentes de vacunarse ”.

El condado ya ha comenzado a imprimir una variedad de materiales informativos (volantes, colgadores de puertas, carteles, etc.) para apoyar la campaña. La capacitación del personal, que se centrará en el servicio al cliente, la seguridad, la logística y la mensajería adecuada, comenzará el 4 de junio. La campaña se lanzará el 7 de junio y durará aproximadamente 10 días.

La mayoría de los sitios de vacunación están abiertos de martes a sábado de 10 a.m. a 6 p.m. Consulte aquí para obtener más información sobre los lugares de vacunación y las horas de atención.

Metrolink hace que la vacunación sea parte de su viaje diario

Muchos residentes del Condado de San Bernardino quieren vacunarse, pero aún no lo han hecho porque no pueden hacer tiempo en sus horarios ocupados para encontrar y visitar una clínica de vacunación.

Metrolink está abordando esa necesidad asociándose con profesionales de la salud pública para proporcionar vacunas Pfizer COVID-19 en las estaciones de Metrolink desde Montclair hasta San Bernardino. Los primeros sitios de vacunación de estaciones de tránsito operarán la próxima semana del 8 al sábado 12 de junio de 11 a.m. a 6 p.m. en los sitios de Montclair, Upland y Fontana Metrolink.

“Esta es una gran oportunidad para los viajeros ocupados y cualquier persona que viva cerca de estas estaciones para protegerse a sí mismos ya sus seres queridos del COVID-19”, dijo el Presidente de la Junta de Supervisores, Curt Hagman.

Cada día habrá 200 dosis de la vacuna Pfizer disponibles en cada sitio. Los sitios volverán a operar del 29 de junio al 3 de julio para administrar.

El programa se extenderá a las estaciones de Rialto, Centro de San Bernardino y San Bernardino Santa Fe Depot desde el 15 de junio hasta el 19 de junio y nuevamente desde el 6 de julio hasta el 10 de julio.

La estación Montclair está ubicada en 5091 Richton St. La estación Upland está en 300 East A Street, y la estación Fontana está en 16777 Orange Way.

Nuevo mapa interactivo en línea comparte sitios de vacunación cerca de usted

Los residentes pueden ver sitios emergentes tanto fijos como móviles

Además de los 14 sitios estacionarios del condado que distribuyen dosis cada semana de martes a sábado, los residentes del Condado de San Bernardino también pueden usar un nuevo mapa interactivo para encontrar cualquiera de los eventos emergentes móviles que ocurren casi casi diariamente desde el valle hasta los desiertos.

Junto con los sitios móviles y estacionarios, hay docenas de hospitales, centros de salud, clínicas y farmacias que están ofreciendo dosis de vacunas.

“Hemos llegado a un punto en el que aquellos complacientes o indecisos acerca de recibir una vacuna COVID-19 necesitan tomar medida”, dijo el Dr. Michael Sequeira, Oficial de Salud Pública del Condado. “Retrasar la vacunación es un riesgo innecesario. No hay razón para no recibir esta inyección mientras haya una posibilidad de enfermedad grave, problemas a largo plazo o incluso la muerte “.

Sitios en curso operados por el Condado

Los 14 sitios operados por el condado operan de martes a sábado de 10 a.m. a 6 p.m. Todos los sitios ofrecen la vacuna Pfizer y se aceptan citas y visitas sin cita previa.

Vacúnese y gane dinero en efectivo, reciba tarjetas de regalo de $ 50

Este viernes 4 de junio, cualquier persona que haya recibido al menos una inyección de la vacuna COVID-19 tendrá la oportunidad de estar entre los 15 californianos seleccionados al azar para ganar $ 50,000. Otras 15 personas serán sorteadas el 11 de junio y, finalmente, el 15 de junio, 10 afortunados residentes del estado ganarán $ 1.5 millones cada uno.

Todo esto es parte de un plan de incentivos “Vax for the Win” de $ 116.5 millones anunciado la semana pasada, diseñado para animar a más personas a recibir su dosis. Además, los próximos 2 millones de residentes que se vacunen recibirán una tarjeta de regalo en línea o de supermercado de $ 50.

“Hay muchos residentes del condado de San Bernardino que quieren vacunarse pero no lo han hecho porque tienen vidas ocupadas y prioridades más altas”, dijo la Junta de Supervisores Curt Hagman. “Con suerte, la oportunidad de ganar una gran cantidad de dinero estatal los llevará al centro de vacunación más cercano”.

Todos los californianos de 12 años o más son elegibles. El Estado colocará las ganancias de los menores de 18 años en una cuenta de ahorros hasta que alcancen la edad adulta. Los detalles del programa se pueden encontrar en el sitio web estatal State’s Vax for the Win website.

Flags lowered to half-staff for fallen Sheriff’s sergeant

Sgt. Dominic Vaca

Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman has ordered flags at all county government facilities to fly at half-staff in honor of Sheriff’s Sgt. Dominic Vaca, who was killed in the line of duty on Monday.

Chairman Hagman encourages all county residents, businesses and government agencies to do the same.

“Sgt. Vaca lost his life bravely protecting the people of this county. He made the ultimate sacrifice so that someday all of us can live our lives free from the fear of violent crime,” Hagman said.

Sgt. Vaca was a 17-year veteran of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. He was killed when a motorcyclist opened fire on deputies who had been pursuing him in Yucca Valley. The gunman was killed during the gunfight with deputies.

“Our hearts are broken. Sgt. Vaca was a true hero and a beloved member of our Morongo Basin community,” said Board of Supervisors Vice Chair Dawn Rowe, a resident of Yucca Valley. “Our thoughts, prayers and support are with his dear family during this tragic time.”

A memorial fund has been established to assist Sgt. Vaca’s wife and children.

The County will keep flags at half-staff until sunset on the day of Sgt. Vaca’s interment, which has yet to be determined.

May 27, 2021 Special Update – Get Vaccinated and Become a Millionaire

The Golden State’s newest millionaires could also be the most newly vaccinated against COVID-19.

Ten vaccinated Californians will each receive $1.5 million, 30 will receive $50,000, and the first 2 million who get vaccinated starting this afternoon will receive $50 online or grocery gift cards under a $116.5 million Vax for the Win incentive plan announced by Gov. Gavin Newsom today.

“There are a lot of San Bernardino County residents who want to get vaccinated but haven’t because they have busy lives and higher priorities,” said Board of Supervisors Curt Hagman. “Hopefully the chance at winning a serious amount of State money will drive them to their nearest vaccination center.”

More than half of all eligible county residents have been vaccinated and more than 40 percent have been fully vaccinated. Almost 1.5 million doses have been received by county residents.

These county residents along with everyone who is vaccinated soon will be among the ten Californians who will split a $15 million jackpot on June 15. Vaccinated Californians will also be automatically entered for chances to win $50,000, with 15 winners drawn June 4 and the rest drawn June 11. Winners can claim their prizes after they have been fully vaccinated, which means two shots of Pfizer or Moderna or one shot of Johnson & Johnson.

All Californians 12 years or older are eligible. The State will place the winnings of those under 18 into a savings account until they reach adulthood.

Program details can be found on the State’s Vax for the Win website.

Becoming eligible for these winnings is easy in San Bernardino County. All 14 County-operated sites operate Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. All sites are offering the Pfizer vaccine and both appointments and walk-ups are accepted.

Vacunarse y convertirse en millonario

Los nuevos millonarios del Estado Dorado también podrían ser los más recién vacunados contra el COVID-19.

Diez californianos vacunados recibirán cada uno $1.5 millones, 30 recibirán $50,000, y los primeros 2 millones que se vacunen a partir de esta tarde recibirán trajetas de $50 prepagadas o de supermercado bajo un plan de incentivos Vax for the Win de $116.5 millones anunciado por el gobernador Gavin Newsom hoy.

“Hay muchos residentes del condado de San Bernardino que quieren vacunarse pero no lo han hecho porque tienen vidas ocupadas y prioridades más altas”, dijo el miembro de la Junta de Supervisores Curt Hagman. “Esperemos que la oportunidad de ganar una cantidad seria de dinero del Estado los lleve a su centro de vacunación más cercano”.

Más de la mitad de todos los residentes del condado elegibles han sido vacunados y más del 40 por ciento han sido vacunados completamente. Casi 1,5 millones de dosis han sido recibidas por los residentes del condado.

Estos residentes del condado junto con todos los que están vacunados pronto estarán entre los diez californianos que dividirán un premio mayor de $15 millones el 15 de junio. Los californianos vacunados también serán ingresados automáticamente por posibilidades de ganar $50,000, con 15 ganadores sorteados el 4 de junio y el resto sorteados el 11 de junio. Los ganadores pueden reclamar sus premios después de haber sido vacunados completamente, lo que significa dos dosis de Pfizer o Moderna o una dosis de Johnson & Johnson.

Todos los californianos de 12 años o más son elegibles. El Estado colocará las ganancias de los menores de 18 años en una cuenta de ahorros hasta que lleguen a la edad adulta.

Los detalles del programa se pueden encontrar en el sitio web de Vax for the Win del estado.

Ser elegible para estas ganancias es fácil en el condado de San Bernardino. Los 14 sitios operados por el condado operan de martes a sábado de 10 a.m. a 6 p.m. Todos los sitios están ofreciendo la vacuna Pfizer y se aceptan citas y caminatas.

State Makes Plans for Reopening and “Mega Events”

The State last week provided an update on the Beyond the Blueprint Framework for the State’s June 15 reopening. In less than three weeks, the State will clear all industry and business sectors listed in the current Blueprint Activities and Business Tiers Chart to return to usual operations with no capacity limits or physical distancing requirements, with limited exceptions for what the State is calling “mega events.”

“This will be a big step toward returning life to normal after what will be 15 months of State restrictions,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “Our county’s businesses and residents deserve all of the credit for getting us here. Their sacrifices and the safety measures they took have brought us close to defeating COVID-19.”

The State defines “mega events” as planned public or social occasions that include over 5,000 participants or spectators indoors and over 10,000 outdoors. Examples include conventions, shows, nightclubs, concerts, sporting events, theme parks, fairs, festivals, large races, and parades. Verification of full vaccination or a negative test result will be required for indoor mega events and recommended for outdoor mega events.

Verification can take the form of written or even verbal self-attestation. A person making reservations or purchasing tickets for a large group can attest on behalf of the entire group. There will be no restrictions on capacity for mega events or social-distancing requirements. Current State guidance on masks will apply to mega events.

Employers will be subject to the Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS), if applicable to them, and CDPH will continue to provide updated guidance for youth, healthcare, and high-risk congregate settings.

New Interactive Online Map Shares Vaccination Sites Near You

Residents Can See Both Stationary and Mobile Pop-up Sites

In addition to 14 ongoing County stationary sites distributing doses every week from Tuesday through Saturday, San Bernardino County residents can also use a new interactive map to find any of the mobile, pop-up events happening almost daily from the valley to the deserts.

This online map dashboard shows the sites and dates of all upcoming mobile vaccination events (best seen in Chrome). The stars on the map indicate the stationary vaccine sites throughout our county.

Along with the mobile and stationary sites, there are dozens of hospitals, health centers, clinics, pharmacies and now even high schools (see accompanying story), that are offering vaccine doses.

“We have reached a point where those complacent or hesitant about getting a COVID-19 vaccine need to take action,” said County Public Health Officer Dr. Michael Sequeira. “Delaying getting your vaccine is an unnecessary risk. There is no reason not to get this shot while there is a possibility of serious illness, long-term problems or even death.”

Ongoing County-operated sites

All 14 County-operated sites operate Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. All sites are offering the Pfizer vaccine and both appointments and walk-ups are accepted.

  • Apple Valley, Our Lady of the Desert Catholic Church (affiliated with Providence St. Joseph Health,
    18386 Corwin Rd.)
  • Bloomington, Ayala Park Community Center (18313 Valley Blvd.)
  • Fontana, Jessie Turner Health & Fitness Community Center (15556 Summit Ave,)

People who walk-up to a vaccination site should be prepared to register in person, which will include answering health-screening questions. Appointments can be made for all sites at sbcovid19.com/vaccine.

Hospitals, health centers, clinics and pharmacies

In addition to the above ongoing County-operated vaccine sites, many hospitals in San Bernardino County have vaccines on hand, as well as several clinics and health centers.

Individuals can use the County website or go through their physician groups associated with Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, Loma Linda University Health, San Antonio Regional Hospital, Mountains Community Hospital, Redlands Community Hospital, Bear Valley Community Healthcare or the San Bernardino Clinic.

In addition, Moderna vaccines are being given at the San Bernardino County Health Centers in San Bernardino, Ontario, Hesperia and Adelanto.

Finally, there are participating pharmacies administering doses throughout the county, including Albertsons, Costco, Ralphs, Rite-Aid, Sav-On, Vons, Walgreens and Walmart, as well as many independent pharmacies. Individuals should check directly with their preferred, neighborhood pharmacy, or again, check the list at sbcovid19.com/vaccine.

High School Vaccination Campaign Off to Roaring Start

San Bernardino County’s effort to expand vaccinations by teaming up with local high schools is proving to be a rousing success — helping the County inoculate young people and residents living in some of the County’s most hard-hit neigborhoods and far-flung locations.

While primarily focused on vaccinating people between the ages of 12 and 15, the program is open to any student, family member or community member.

“This has been a tremendous partnership and perhaps our single most successful vaccination initiative,” said Interim Public Health Director Andrew Goldfrach. “Bringing vaccines to local neighborhood schools, rather than making people travel to vaccination sites, is enabling us to vaccinate even some of our most hesitant residents.”

Ted Alejandre, the County Superintendent of Schools, agrees. “This campaign has shown to be popular among parents and students alike and it’s helping reassure people about vaccine safety and effectiveness. This effort will go a long way to ensuring safety in the classroom and helping us return to normal.”

According to Goldfrach, the high schools’ targeted communications efforts, which have largely focused on reaching each school’s students and their parents, have been extraordinarily successful.

“The schools have been very effective in reaching people and persuading them to get a shot,” he said. “That, in turn, is having a big impact on our overall vaccination rates. Now that our senior population is reaching 70% vaccination rates, we can turn our attention to all adults and teens.”

Goldfrach said the campaign is also having a notable impact on the County’s health equity measures.

“To take just one example: vaccination rates in Bloomington, one of the County’s most hard-hit areas, are now at 90%,” he said. “Moreover, this campaign is helping us inoculate people in remote locations like Needles and Trona.”

Vaccinations are being administered by medical professionals from the County Department of Public Health and Office of Emergency Services, Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, Loma Linda University Health and Redlands Community Hospital. Residents can pre-register on MyTurn.ca.gov or simply walk up to get a shot. Students or others under the age 18 must have a parent or legal guardian present at the time of vaccination to provide written consent.

County Nearing Milestone on Senior Vaccinations

As most people know, COVID-19 has been particularly hard on persons over age 65, who are more likely to have serious illness, long-haul symptoms and risk death if contracting the virus.

A major goal has been to vaccinate a strong majority of this population, with CDC recommending a threshold of 70% in this critical demographic. San Bernardino County has fully vaccinated 67% of its residents 65 plus, and 78% are at least partially vaccinated.

“This is one of the first major milestones based on populations within the county that we have met, and it’s a good sign we’re on the right track to reach this milestone for other demographics,” said County Interim Public Health Director Andrew Goldfrach. “However, it you are a senior still unvaccinated – or a caretaker of one – please take the time get yours.”

In addition to information and access to COVID-19 vaccines, the County is dedicated to helping seniors and at risk individuals to improve or maintain choice, independence and quality of life.  This includes a full suite of services for our seniors including nutrition services, employment assistance, health insurance counseling and advocacy, behavioral health and wellness services, in-home services financial support, and adult protective services for protection against abuse.

These services and more can be found on the website for the Department of Aging and Adult Services at http://hss.sbcounty.gov/daas/.

El Sol Offers Free Rides to Vaccination Sites

El Sol Neighborhood Educational Center, which has served the community in many valuable ways during the COVID-19 pandemic, will start offering free rides to vaccination sites around the Inland Empire. This is an effort to increase access to COVID-19 vaccines in rural, underserved communities that face transportation barriers.

“We are very excited for this program as we are aware that there have been issues with transportation among our communities,” said El Sol Executive Director Alexander Fajardo.

To request a ride, call El Sol’s COVID-19 helpline at 800-901-5541. The helpline also has the most up-to-date vaccination site locations, connecting community members to the closest vaccination site available to them.

For organizations that would like to schedule Uber rides directly, a training session will be offered at no-cost. For more information, please email Isaac Mendez at isaacmendez@elsolnec.org.

Organizations and residents are encouraged to share this information with their families, friends, and communities through flyers in both English and Spanish.

County Celebrates Mental Health Month with Virtual Celebrity Event

The San Bernardino County Department of Behavioral Health (DBH) is bringing mental health into the limelight through virtual events including the 17th Annual Evening with the Stars. The virtual event celebrates Mental Health Month by honoring deserving individuals, agencies, and programs who are making a difference in behavioral health.

The event’s keynote speaker will feature Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter and member of Destiny’s Child, Michelle Williams. Williams will share her battle with mental illness and how she took charge of her mental health and well-being. People are invited to stream the event on either the DBH Facebook or YouTube page on Friday, May 28 at 6 p.m.

Ms. Williams recorded this special video invitation encouraging San Bernardino County residents to participate in the event.

May is Mental Health Month, a time for the community to rally behind the importance of mental health, stigma reduction, suicide prevention, and the fact that treatment works and recovery happens. Learn more about our Mental Health Month events at www.celebrateMHM.com.

Stigma surrounding mental illness discourages individuals and families from seeking help. Together, we can bring mental health to the forefront of conversations and encourage others to seek help when they need it. For more information on behavioral health services and/or resources in our county, visit www.sbcounty.gov/dbh.

El Estado hace planes para reabrir y “ Mega Eventos

El Estado proporcionó la semana pasada una actualización sobre el marco más allá del plan para la reapertura Beyond the Blueprint Framework del Estado el 15 de junio. En menos de tres semanas, el Estado despejará todos los sectores industriales y empresariales enumerados en el actual Plan de Actividades y Niveles de Negocio Blueprint Activities and Business Tiers Chart para volver a las operaciones habituales sin límites de capacidad ni requisitos de distanciamiento físico, con excepciones limitadas para lo que el Estado llama “mega eventos”.

” Este será un gran paso hacia el retorno de la vida a la normalidad después de lo que serán 15 meses de restricciones estatales», dijo el Presidente de la Junta de Supervisores, Curt Hagman. “Los negocios y residentes de nuestro condado merecen todo el crédito por traernos aquí. Sus sacrificios y las medidas de seguridad que tomaron nos han traído cerca a derrotar COVID-19.”

El Estado define “mega eventos” como eventos públicos o sociales planificados que incluyen a más de 5,000 participantes o espectadores en el interior y más de 10,000 al aire libre. Ejemplos incluyen convenciones, espectáculos, clubes nocturnos, conciertos, eventos deportivos, parques temáticos, ferias, festivales, grandes carreras y desfiles. Se requerirá la verificación de la vacunación completa o un resultado negativo de la prueba para los mega eventos interiores y se recomendará para los mega eventos al aire libre.

La verificación puede tomar la forma de autoatestación escrita o incluso verbal. La persona que haga reservas o compre entradas para un grupo grande puede atestiguar en nombre de todo el grupo. No habrá restricciones en la capacidad para mega eventos o requisitos de distanciamiento social. La guía estatal actual sobre máscaras se aplicará a los mega eventos.

Los empleadores estarán sujetos a las Normas Temporales de Emergencia de Prevención  Cal/OSHA COVID-19, Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS) si les corresponde a ellos, y  CDPH continuará proporcionando orientación actualizada para los jóvenes, la atención médica y lugares de reunión de alto riesgo..

Junto con los sitios móviles y estacionarios, hay docenas de hospitales, centros de salud, clínicas, farmacias y ahora incluso escuelas secundarias (ver historia que acompaña), que están ofreciendo dosis de vacunas.

“Hemos llegado a un punto en el que aquellos complacientes o que dudan en recibir una vacuna COVID-19 necesitan tomar medidas”, dijo el Dr. Michael Sequeira, Oficial de Salud Pública del Condado. “Retrasar la vacunación es un riesgo innecesario. No hay razón para no recibir esta inyección mientras haya una posibilidad de enfermedad grave, problemas a largo plazo o incluso la muerte “.

Sitios en curso operados por el Condado

Los 14 sitios operados por el condado operan de martes a sábado de 10 a.m. a 6 p.m. Todos los sitios están ofreciendo la vacuna Pfizer y se aceptan citas o visitas sin cita.

Hospitales, centros de salud, clínicas y farmacias

Además de los sitios de vacunación operados por el Condado arriba mencionados, muchos hospitales en el Condado de San Bernardino tienen vacunas a mano, así como varias clínicas y centros de salud.

Los individuos deben verificar directamente con su farmacia preferida, o nuevamente, revisar la lista en sbcovid19.com/vaccine.

La Campaña de vacunación en las escuelas secundarias comienza con éxito tremendo.

El esfuerzo del Condado de San Bernardino para ampliar las vacunas al asociarse con las escuelas secundarias locales está demostrando ser un éxito emocionante, ayudando al condado a inocular a los jóvenes y residentes que viven en algunos de los lugares más afectados del condado.

Aunque se enfoca principalmente en vacunar a personas entre las edades de 12 y 15 años, el programa está abierto a cualquier estudiante, miembro de la familia o miembro de la comunidad.

“Esta ha sido una asociación tremenda y tal vez nuestra iniciativa de vacunación más exitosa”, dijo el Director Interino de Salud Pública Andrew Goldfrach. “Llevar vacunas a las escuelas locales de los vecinos, en lugar de hacer que la gente viaje a los sitios de vacunación, nos está permitiendo vacunar incluso a algunos de nuestros residentes más indecisos”.

Ted Alejandre, el Superintendente de Escuelas del Condado, está de acuerdo. “Esta campaña ha demostrado ser popular entre padres y estudiantes por igual y está ayudando a tranquilizar a la gente sobre la seguridad y eficacia de las vacunas. Este esfuerzo contribuirá en gran medida a garantizar la seguridad en el aula y a ayudarnos a volver a la normalidad”.

Según Goldfrach, los esfuerzos de comunicación focalizados de las escuelas secundarias, que se han centrado en gran medida en llegar a los estudiantes de cada escuela y a sus padres, han sido extraordinariamente exitosos.

“Las escuelas han sido muy eficaces para llegar a las personas y persuadirles de que obtengan la vacuna, dijo. “Eso, a su vez, está teniendo un gran impacto en nuestras tasas generales de vacunación. Ahora que nuestra población mayor alcanza el 70% de las tasas de vacunación, podemos dirigir nuestra atención a todos los adultos y adolescentes “.

Goldfrach dijo que la campaña también está teniendo un impacto notable en las medidas de equidad en salud del Condado.

Para tomar sólo un ejemplo: las tasas de vacunación en Bloomington, una de las zonas más afectadas del condado, están ahora en el 90%», dijo. “Además, esta campaña nos está ayudando a inocular a personas en lugares remotos como Needles y Trona”.

Las vacunas están siendo administradas por profesionales médicos del Departamento de Salud Pública del Condado y la Oficina de Servicios de Emergencia, Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, Loma Linda University Health y Redlands Community Hospital. Los residentes pueden pre-registrarse en MyTurn.ca.gov o simplemente ir al sitio sin cita para obtener una vacuna. Los estudiantes u otras personas menores de 18 años deben tener un padre o tutor legal presente en el momento de la vacunación para proporcionar consentimiento por escrito.

El condado se acerca al hito de las vacunas para adultos mayores

Como la mayoría de la gente sabe, COVID-19 ha sido particularmente difícil en personas mayores de 65 años, quienes tienen más probabilidades de tener enfermedades graves, síntomas de larga duración y riesgo de muerte si contraen el virus.

Un objetivo importante ha sido vacunar a una gran mayoría de esta población, y los CDC recomiendan un umbral del 70% en esta población crítica. El condado de San Bernardino ha vacunado completamente al 67% de sus residentes 65 más, y el 78% están al menos parcialmente vacunados.

“Este es uno de los primeros hitos importantes basados en las poblaciones dentro del condado que hemos cumplido, y es una buena señal de que estamos en el camino correcto para alcanzar este hito para otras demográficos”, dijo el Director Interino de Salud Pública del Condado, Andrew Goldfrach. “Sin embargo, si usted es una persona mayor todavía no vacunado – o un cuidador de uno – por favor tómese el tiempo para obtener el suyo”.

Además de la información y el acceso a las vacunas COVID-19, el Condado se dedica a ayudar a las personas mayores y en riesgo a mejorar o mantener la elección, la independencia y la calidad de vida. Esto incluye un conjunto completo de servicios para nuestros adultos mayores, incluidos servicios de nutrición, asistencia laboral, consejería y promoción de seguros de salud, servicios de salud y bienestar conductual, apoyo financiero en servicios en el hogar y servicios de protección para adultos para la protección contra el abuso.

Estos servicios y más se pueden encontrar en el sitio web del Departamento de Servicios para Adultos y Envejecimiento en http://hss.sbcounty.gov/daas/.
