Updates from County of Santa Clara
  • Suicide Prevention Resources: Suicide is a major public health concern that is complicated and tragic, but is often preventable. Knowing the warning signs for suicide and how to get help can save lives. As part of its Suicide Prevention Strategic Plan, Santa Clara County publishes an annual report reviewing local data and providing plan implementation details. In addition to its strategic plan implementation, Santa Clara County is currently raising awareness of suicide prevention among middle-aged Spanish-speaking men in Santa Clara County during COVID-19 and has a survey that residents can take (available in English and Spanish) through Feb. 21. Your responses will help improve future suicide prevention efforts—they help measure campaign reach and reaction, the mental health impact of COVID-19, and knowledge and attitudes about mental health and suicide among adults in the community. If you or someone you know needs help, emotional health and self care resources are available, especially to help you cope with anxiety and stress during COVID-19. Santa Clara County also publishes community outreach materials in multiple languages (including English, Spanish, Chinese, and Vietnamese) that you can use.

COVID-19 Testing, Tracing, and Support Services
  • County Passes Vaccination Milestone: The County of Santa Clara recently announced that more than half of county residents age 75 and older have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccine data also show that, as of Sunday, Feb. 14, 43.7% of county residents age 65 and older have received at least one dose of the vaccine, with 232,761 total residents now partially or fully vaccinated. These data reflect strong progress towards the County's goal of vaccinating at least 85% of residents age 16 or older by August 1, 2021. The data also continue to reflect the ongoing need to focus vaccination efforts on ensuring equitable access for those at greatest risk of serious illness and death, and those at greatest risk of exposure to COVID-19. As of Feb. 4, any Santa Clara County resident age 65 or older can receive their free COVID-19 vaccine from the County Health System, regardless of their healthcare provider or insurance.

  • Get Tested: If you need a COVID-19 test, don't wait!
