I am unable to leave my house due to health conditions, can I still get a vaccine?

Yes! Through a partnership with Fox Home Health, the County of Sonoma is providing COVID-19 vaccinations to adults 12 years of age and older who are homebound for a variety of medical reasons and have difficulty getting to a clinic. Fox Home Health  is operating a mobile vaccine clinic for those who are homebound. This service is available to those who are homebound as defined by Medicare: 

  • You need the help of another person or medical equipment such as crutches, a walker, or a wheelchair to leave your home, or your doctor believes that your health or illness could get worse if you leave your home.
  • And, it is difficult for you to leave your home and you typically cannot do so.

Medicare still considers you homebound even if you can still leave your home for medical treatment, religious services, and/or to attend a licensed or accredited adult day care center. Fox Home Health will screen homebound individuals for eligibility before providing vaccinations. Homebound individuals who fit the criteria should call (707) 565-4667 or email for more information.
