COVID-19 Vaccine Updates

COVID-19 Vaccine for Midwives Working in Community-Based Birth

CNMA is actively working with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) to streamline the process for midwives working in the out-of-hospital setting to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. At this time, CDPH recommends that community-based midwives reach out to their local health department for specific timelines on vaccine distribution as well as healthcare prioritization of vaccines. We have been informed that community-based midwives do indeed fall under Tier 2 of Phase 1a, however, this may still require education and advocacy with each local health department. Please email me directly at parisbury@gmail.com to let me know about your successes/challenges with this process, so that CNMA can continue to advocate for your access to the vaccine.
