California Schools VEBA is committed to the health and safety of our community. We are working with the County of San Diego to help manage the county’s allocation of COVID-19 vaccines for all eligible San Diego school employees. VEBA will serve in a volunteer capacity to coordinate the vaccine distribution for more than 100,000 public, private, parochial, charter schools, and community college employees in San Diego. 

This page was last updated on April 26, 2021:

The County of San Diego has now opened Phase 2, which includes the general population 50 years and older. Beginning April 15, everyone age 16 and older will be eligible for the vaccine. VEBA is following state and county guidelines for COVID-19 vaccination including phases for vaccine distribution. All TK-12 education employees working in San Diego district, charter, and private schools are now eligible to schedule their COVID-19 vaccine appointment through the VEBA portal. If you are not a TK-12 employee, but are currently eligible, you can find an appointment through these community resources.
