The much-awaited vaccines for Covid-19 are finally out for distribution, which has led parents to ask “When can my nanny get the vaccine?” The answer is…a little complicated, so let’s dive in. According to the California’s tiered plan those working in education and childcare are in Phase 1B Tier One. Los Angeles county expects that vaccinations will begin for those in Phase 1B in early February and that everyone in this phase should have been offered at least one dose of the vaccine by late March. Currently the description for “childcare” indicates only licensed childcare facilities and home daycares, but we believe this to be because in-home childcare providers are often forgotten when creating policy.
We have created a template letter that families may use to confirm their nanny’s employment which is available to all Westside Nannies clients. If you are a past or present client please reach out to your placement counselor and we will happily send you a copy.
As always, if you are in need of childcare on a temporary or permanent basis please schedule a call with us. We have wonderful nannies who are ready to work and support families!
