Data continue to show the importance of vaccination and booster doses to protect individuals both from infection and severe outcomes of COVID-19. For adults and adolescents eligible for a first booster dose, these shots are safe and provide substantial benefit. During the recent Omicron surge, those who were boosted were 21-times less likely to die from COVID-19 compared to those who were unvaccinated, and 7-times less likely to be hospitalized. CDC continues to recommend that all eligible adults, adolescents, and children 5 and older be up to date on their COVID-19 vaccines, which includes getting an initial booster when eligible.

CDC is committed to COVID-19 vaccine equity, which is when everyone has fair and just access to COVID-19 vaccination. There are many social, geographic, political, economic, and environmental factors that create challenges to vaccination access and acceptance, and that often affect racial and ethnic minority groups.

Vaccination is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, including in workplaces. Employers, labor organizations, healthcare, and public health organizations, and community-based organizations have developed many types of policies and programs to promote worker vaccination. Some examples are described below. Learn more!

In alignment with the State, effective immediately, the Sacramento County Health Officer is rescinding the July 26 Health Order requiring all individuals to wear face coverings indoors, as well as the January 6 Health Order directing all public meetings to be held virtually. Per order of CDPH, all unvaccinated individuals will continue to be required to wear face-coverings in all indoor public settings. The State’s masking requirements regardless of vaccination status remains in effect for public transportation; healthcare settings; congregate settings; long-term care facilities; and in K-12 schools and childcare settings. In workplaces, employers are subject to the Cal/OSHA requirements.
