You may be wondering what our “status” is here at Vintage House. Specifically, when do we re-open? Since this all began, we have been in constant consultations with local, state, and national agencies—including other senior centers—gathering excellent advice and critical data.
All in-person programs and classes are temporarily suspended.
When we are completely confident we can ensure your health, only then will we fully re-open. We will make announcements here, on our class schedule, and via our weekly e-blast newsletter. Click here to sign up to receive the newsletter!
So, for now, please hang in here with us virtually, while we solidify plans to see each other in person soon!
SONOMA COUNTY Covid-19 VACCINE ROLL OUT INFORMATION
While new state and federal guidelines now allow for individuals over 65 to receive the Covid-19 vaccine, there are limits on how much vaccine is available. Sonoma County’s Department of Health is coordinating with health care providers, and your health center will contact you about scheduling when the vaccine is available to you. We found this information from the Sonoma County’s Department of Health website very useful, and hope it helps you:
Individuals who are eligible to be vaccinated should first contact their health-care provider or primary care physician for information on how they can receive a vaccine or to make an appointment
- Kaiser members should contact their primary care provider here https://healthy.kaiserpermanente.org/northern-california/front-door or contact the Kaiser appointment or advice line to determine their eligibility and schedule an appointment.
- Eligible individuals who receive primary care through Sutter Health should contact Sutter https://www.sutterhealth.org/covid-vaccine or call (844) 987-6115.
