Vaccines Available For

Anyone 5 and Older

Do it for yourself, your family, and your community. When you’re vaccinated against COVID-19, you protect yourself from a deadly disease. Vaccinate to stop the spread to your friends, your family, your elders, and the people who work hard to keep our communities safe and open.

COVID-19 vaccines protect against new variants like Delta, which are easier to catch and much more dangerous to unvaccinated people than earlier forms of the virus. The vaccines are highly effective at preventing severe disease, hospitalization, and death from these variants, and are critical to stopping the spread of COVID-19 before it can mutate into an even more dangerous form.

Vaccination is even available to young people aged 5 to 17 years old, so families can feel even safer as we venture out more, visit grandma and grandpa, go on summer vacations, and get back to doing the things we love.

Studies have shown the Pfizer vaccine is very effective in preventing COVID-19 infections and producing protective antibodies in teenagers. Learn more from the CDC about the benefits of getting a vaccine.

Vaccination Policies

What is the vaccination policy for students?

TCSOS highly encourages anyone eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine to get vaccinated and is partnering with healthcare and community providers to make vaccines accessible and free for TCSOS families.  Visit TCSOS’s COVID-19 vaccine webpage for the latest updates on COVID-19 vaccines.

 

What is the vaccination policy for staff and teachers?

TCSOS is requiring all staff to report their vaccination status. The district is actively promoting all eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine to get vaccinated and is partnering with healthcare and community providers to make vaccines accessible and free for TCSOS staff and families. Visit TCSOS’s COVID-19 vaccine webpage for the latest updates on COVID-19 vaccines.

 

Now that LAUSD is requiring students to be vaccinated, when will TCSOS approve the same requirement for students?

TCSOS is not mandating students to be vaccinated at this time. 

 

Where can I request information about the vaccination rates or statistics about testing results for my student's school or classroom?

To protect the privacy and confidential health information of students and staff, TCSOS is unable to share detailed information about vaccination records. TCSOS is planning and implementing health and safety guidelines and enforcing COVID-19 mitigation strategies such as universal masking, improved ventilation, and surveillance testing based on the current public health context whereby children under 5 years old are unvaccinated. 

 

When will TCSOS implement the statewide vaccination mandate?

The State mandate does not go into effect right away, and it is contingent on the COVID-19 vaccine receiving full FDA approval for anyone who is between ages 5-15. 

Currently, all students attending TCSOS, per California state law, are required to be up to date on immunizations required by the Health and Safety Code and the CA Code of Regulations. 

We will be working closely with the Tuolumne County Public Health Department to set up additional systems to verify student vaccination as we await more details from the State.
