People jump the line to get vaccinated before eligibility – NBC Bay Area

Unfair and righteous – that’s how many people describe people who jump the line and get vaccinated before they qualify.

Many know at least one person who overestimated their health or made their boss classify them as frontline workers in order to jump the line – experts call hyper-competitive behavior “the hunger games of vaccines”.

San Francisco-based childcare worker Carla Salazar describes the lengths some people will go to get a COVID-19 vaccine “crazy,” including lying about being staples.

“They say, ‘I work as a nurse,’ and they take badges from friends,” she said.

On Monday, millions of California residents with serious health conditions and disabilities were eligible to receive the vaccine.

Unfair and righteous – that’s how many people describe people who jump the line and get vaccinated before they qualify. Lily Tan tells us.

San Francisco has taken a step forward including homeless people, prisoners and others in high-risk gathering places.

But as the vaccine opens up to more people, the chance to jump the streak and get tricked into the vaccine increases.

“It’s competition, and it shouldn’t be,” said Dr. George Rutherford, an epidemiologist at the University of California, San Francisco. “I think people should have bigger societal goals in mind which is to stop transmission.”

He says that taking an appointment away from someone who lives in a highly contagious area makes fighting the epidemic more difficult.

“We don’t want the Vaccine Hunger Games,” Rutherford said. “There is a logic to this, and please wait your turn.”

Some agree.

It’s not fair, “said Tani Beccaria Mochizuki of San Francisco. “The people who really need the vaccine deserve it first.”

Others say that vaccinating anyone will help us achieve herd immunity.

“You know?” Said Sean Gupta from San Francisco, “The more people who get vaccinated, the more important thing is.” This is better for all of us, so let’s get it done.

The City of San Francisco requires everyone to check the box and sign their name to swear that they are eligible to receive the vaccine, but some say that purely relying on people’s honesty makes it extremely easy to deceive the system.

We have informed all San Francisco vaccination providers of the following guidelines regarding eligibility verification:

  • Use reasonable processes to verify that people applying for vaccination meet eligibility criteria, while avoiding cumbersome documentation requirements that create barriers to vaccination.
  • Workers in different work sectors differ in the available documents that can verify their employment status. Service providers may adopt methods that include but are not limited to verifying job identification badges, pay slips, or letters from employers, recognizing that in some circumstances it may be better and more equitable to rely instead on obtaining a signed certificate from the vaccine. Manpower sector.
  • Ultimately, it is up to the vaccination entity to decide on the appropriate process to verify eligibility, but vaccination must ensure that vaccination sites serve populations and communities disproportionately affected by COVID19 that access to vaccines is low-barrier.
  • This contact will be updated if additional CDPH eligibility verification guidance is published.
