On the Record with Governor Gavin Newsom: A Shot in the Arm Against COVID-19 ~ By Governor Gavin Newsom

Sacramento, CA...After one of the most challenging years of our lives, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel—the COVID-19 vaccines are here, and my administration is working to ensure that no community is left behind.  The COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. They are our best hope to end the pandemic. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is free, even if you’re undocumented or don’t have health insurance.





After the federal government authorized the use of the vaccines back in December, our own Western States Scientific Safety Review Group confirmed that the vaccines are safe. The Panel includes nationally acclaimed scientists, many from California, with expertise in public health.

Although supplies of the vaccine are limited right now, we’re working in close partnership with the federal government to get more vaccines into the state. And we’re working hard to build a system for swiftly and safely vaccinating Californians with equity at the forefront.

While supply of vaccine is constrained, we’re prioritizing vaccines for the Californians most at risk–including health care workers, individuals 65 and older, and workers in education and child care, emergency services and food and agriculture. That means grocery store workers, restaurant workers, farmworkers, those who work in food processing facilities and many others may now be prioritized. And we’re working to ensure that the communities most impacted by COVID-19–so often the communities of color and essential workers who have been sustaining us through this crisis–can access the vaccine.

We’re investing in community-based organizations and partnering with trusted messengers who have been providing critical services and information to California’s diverse communities during the pandemic so that they can help educate, motivate and activate people to get vaccinated when it’s their turn. We’re also building messaging through a public education campaign, creating in-language content with cultural humility and meeting Californians where they are—literally, through the mobile vaccination sites that have deployed throughout the state to community centers, places of worship and health clinics.

Vaccination sites are being set up throughout the state, and we’re working closely with community partners to make sure that vaccines are distributed to those who have been hit the hardest by this virus.

You may see people in uniform or police protecting vaccine sites. They are here to help Californians get vaccinated and are not immigration officials.

The federal government, under President Biden, has confirmed that they will not conduct immigration enforcement operations at or near vaccine sites or clinics. You should not be asked about your immigration status when you get a COVID-19 vaccine.

Also, your medical information is private and cannot be shared with immigration officials. And, vaccinations do not count under the public charge rule.

All Californians can sign up on myturn.ca.gov to be notified when they are eligible for a vaccine. Eligible individuals in several counties, including Los Angeles, San Diego, Fresno and San Francisco, can also use My Turn to schedule an appointment, with more counties expected to begin using My Turn for scheduling in the coming weeks. My Turn is also accessible via a toll-free hotline at 1-833-422-4255. Operators speak English and Spanish, and third-party interpretation is also available in 250+ languages. You can also ask your physician or your pharmacy about scheduling an appointment.

After you’ve been vaccinated, it’s still important to wear a mask, wash your hands often and continue to stay six feet apart to protect others in your community who have not yet been vaccinated.

I encourage every Californian to get vaccinated as soon as it’s your turn. Together, we can end the pandemic.

Let’s get the undocumented and uninsured first in line! This guy is definitely, a shot in the arm. This is how sanctuary states work! If you voted for Gavin, you need a shot in both arms. Pathetic indeed!

    What the hell does that mean?
    Do you mean the people who pick your fruits and vegetables?
    Or maybe the ones who empty your bedpan at the hospital? Or did you mean the ones who ring up your groceries, or clean your child’s classroom?
    Are those the people you meant?
    They certainly do deserve a spot in line right now. Their jobs are dangerous and vital to everyone’s wellbeing.
    But keep on posting racist sh** from your single wide, you jobless, ungrateful turd.

      Read the article. Yes, we have priorities like age, teachers, law enforcement, grocery workers etc. Newsom made notice to the first comment. Calm down especially if you voted democratic. There’s plenty more on the way, stay tuned!

      The poster means that undocumented people need to be deported and have no priority for anything that an actual American receives or has, ever!!! The majority of the nation wants all undocumented people removed from the USA for good.

    possibly one of the most ill-informed comments on this entire site. I want people to get the vaccine based on how likely they are to infect me or become a drain on our medical resources. Not some arbitrary factor like your place of birth.

    C'mon, man. Think before you say something that will embarrass yourself.

      You try thinking Dummy. Two wrongs will never make a right. They are illegal and they are taking away from an actual American. Majority of Americans want illegal immigrants removed immediately, when and wherever they are found.

      And shut up with your jobs no one wants excuse. Robots are going to take most of the low pay jobs anyway. These people will not be needed at all.
