Berkeley expands vaccine eligibility to grocery store, child care workers

BERKELEY, Calif. -- The City of Berkeley says it's expanding vaccine eligibility. Anyone who works in a Berkeley grocery store, convenience store, in-person education or a child care setting now qualifies to get a shot.

Those receiving the vaccine based on their employment will need to provide documentation to confirm eligibility at the site. That includes a recent pay stub, a letter from their employer, or an employee ID badge. In addition, the city is allowing all residents over 65 to get theirs as well.

COVID-19 vaccines are free. You do not need insurance to get a vaccine. However, those who have medical insurance will need to provide their insurance information.
