IMPORTANT: Per the City's COVID19 Mandatory Vaccination Policy , On September 12, 2022, the County of Santa Clara rescinded prior Public Health Orders related to COVID-19 vaccination and testing. The County's Health Officer continues to recommend that all individuals receive COVID-19 booster shots for which they are eligible; however, given the rapid emergence of new and different variants, the anticipated release of additional boosters on a periodic basis, and changing guidance on when individuals should obtain boosters in light of prior vaccination and prior COVID-19 infection, the requirement that all City officers, employees, temporary employees, unpaid interns, and members of any City of San Jose Boards, Commission or Committees obtain a booster shot within 14 days of becoming eligible is discontinued at this time. All City officers, employees, temporary employees, unpaid interns, and members of any City of San Jose Boards, Commission or Committees are required to be "fully vaccinated." Fully vaccinated means the following: It has been at least two weeks since the person has completed the entire recommended initial series of a COVID-19 vaccine. For example, as of the date of the most recent update to this memorandum, the person would be fully vaccinated at least two weeks after receiving a second dose of the Pfizer, Moderna, or Novavax COVID-19 vaccine or two weeks after receiving a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.
