Dear OUSD Staff,
I am writing with an important update about vaccines and educator eligibility. As you know, this situation is changing rapidly. Yesterday, Alameda County announced that it will enter Tier 1B on Monday, February 8. This means that OUSD staff will be able to receive the vaccine from their healthcare providers as described below. Click here to read the county’s full statement. Click here for more specific information on vaccines for school staff.

According to the County’s announcement, your Healthcare Provider - not OUSD - will be administering the vaccine.
This means that you will need to contact your doctor or your health insurance company to find out when and where they are administering vaccines.

The County has established the order by which school staff will be eligible for the vaccine.
At a meeting yesterday with Alameda County Office of Education, they shared the following slide about who will be prioritized within the Education Priority of 1B.
We are working to get more detail from the County on how to determine who fits into each priority level. We will provide additional information as soon as possible. Currently, it is our understanding that OUSD will need to provide employees and contractors in each priority level with a letter that you must bring with you to get the vaccine.

On a personal level, I want to strongly encourage each and everyone one of you - who are able - to get the vaccine. It will help keep you, your family, and our community safe. Every phase, every study, and every trial of all the vaccines have been rigorously reviewed and every approved vaccine has been shown to be safe and effective. As soon as I am eligible, I will get vaccinated and hope that my family can do so soon as well. If you have additional questions, ACPHD has put together some resources to address common misconceptions about the vaccine. 

We will be exploring every option to help our staff get the COVID vaccine as soon as possible. That said, even with recent improvements and the exciting announcement of the Oakland Coliseum as a mega-site scheduled to open later this month, this process will require patience as vaccine supplies continue to arrive more slowly than we all want.
We will keep you up-to-date with information as it becomes available.  Again, thank you for your continued hard work, dedication, and support for our students and community. You are the heart and soul of this district and I am constantly inspired by you.
