Another false alarm?

https://mhealthcheckin.com/covidvaccine?clientId=1610133779763&region=California&urlId=%2Fvcl%2F1610133779763 brings you to the form you must submit to make an appointment. Although those over 75 are mentioned as being eligible in other parts of the document, they are not identified in the appointment section as being eligible.

COVID-19 vaccine is currently being prioritized for the following people:
Phase 1A

Tier 1
– Acute care, psychiatric and correctional facility hospitals
– Skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, and similar settings for older or medically vulnerable individuals
– Paramedics, EMTs and others providing emergency medical services
– Dialysis centers

Tier 2
– Intermediate care facilities for persons who need non-continuous nursing supervision and supportive care
– Home health care and in-home supportive services
– Community health workers, including promotoras
– Public health field staff
– Primary Care clinics, including Federally Qualified Health Centers, Rural Health Centers, correctional facility clinics, and urgent care clinics

Tier 3
-Specialty clinics
– Laboratory workers
– Dental and other oral health clinics
– Pharmacy staff not working in settings at higher tiers
 
By clicking this box, I attest that I belong to a subgroup of the population that is currently being prioritized by the local and state department of public health for COVID-19 vaccination.

Please bring proof of eligibility to the appointment. Anyone who shows up for an appointment and are not from a qualified phase and tier priority group will be denied a vaccine.
