I am so pleased to have an additional reason to update you
on our vaccine rollout progress as San Mateo County’s COVID-19
adjusted case rate was low enough for two weeks for the county to
move to the least restrictive Yellow Tier, representing “minimal”
We know that each of the almost half a million residents who have
received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine are
contributing to stopping the spread of the virus and its variants
as we strive to achieve even greater protection across all
As we begin the month of May, following four months of hard work
by so many to make the COVID-19 vaccine available to every

My update this week comes at a time when we are nearing almost
everyone in San Mateo County being eligible to be vaccinated –
coming April 15th – as we also reach a milestone of half of
our residents age 16+ receiving at least a first
