Vaccination information

Santa Clara County offers free COVID-19 vaccines to all residents 65 and over who cannot be vaccinated through Kaiser Permanente, Stanford Health, or the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, as well as to all healthcare workers. Immigration status does not preclude someone from receiving the vaccine.

Changes to the VTA service
