Introducing a New Program: The Vaccine Homestay Program


Currently, the state of California in the US is vaccinating residents 12 years and older.

Even international students and tourists are eligible for vaccinations (regardless of visa status) as long as you have proof of residence in the state of California.

And of course, it’s free.


Vaccinations for residents 16 years and older started on April 16th, 2021. According to the Los Angeles Department of Public Health, 41% of the general population have finished their second dose of the vaccine, while 68% of people age 65 and over have completed theirs.

Just how, in the short span of one month, did Los Angeles reach such a high vaccination rate? Here are a few possible reasons:

Vaccinations are administered at mass vaccination sites.

Vaccinations are administered at mass vaccination sites.

There are mass vaccination sites open even at night.

Overall, vaccine operations in Los Angeles are going smoothly. A wide variety of places offer the vaccine as well.

Of these places, occasionally a reservation is required, but you can easily make one online, even the day of or day before, and sudden appointments are allowed.

And with some sites open at night, those who work during the day are easily able to get the vaccine as well.

It is because of these reasons that the vaccination rate is climbing higher and higher.


But on the other hand, what about Japan?

The vaccines have a limited inoculation allowance, and with reservations still being difficult to make, Japan is currently in a state where vaccinations are not being effectively distributed.


With that in mind, we at Education Bridge have created a plan for those who wish to get vaccinated quickly: the Vaccine Homestay Program.

This program offers full assistance in getting vaccinated, as well as homestay arrangements and daily lifestyle support to form a perfect support system for your time abroad.

Not only will we take care of all the paperwork necessary for vaccination, but one of our staff will also accompany you to the site, so even if you have zero confidence in your English ability, there is no need to worry.

We can also assist you with the paperwork and registration necessary for short term study at a language school if you are interested!


With relief and peace of mind from the moment you touch down in Los Angeles until your return flight home, learn more about the program below.

Program Details

Currently, we request that all participants in any of our homestay programs quarantine themselves for ten days at their host family’s house as soon as they enter the country.

Along with the two weeks of quarantine, four weeks are required to get both doses of the vaccine, as well as an additional two weeks in case of any emergency situation, for a total of eight weeks in total.

Attendance at a language school during your stay is possible. Counseling and registration services are free, so feel free to let us know if you are interested.

Why do a homestay while getting the vaccine?

Although it differs from person to person, common side effects of the vaccine include fever and joint pain.

Should any of these side effects happen to you after vaccination, what would you do?

You could stay at a hotel, but then there would be no one to take care of or support you.

But with a homestay, a host family is there to help you during your recovery, providing you peace of mind as you recover.

With this in one, we have included the homestay as part of the program with strong consideration for your health in mind.


Of course, we also will support you during your stay, but having someone dependable nearby will always be more comforting, allowing even those who are not used to living overseas to feel a sense of relief and strength in their hearts.



In Los Angeles, not only are bars, cafes, and restaurants reopening, but also shopping malls, Universal Studios, Disneyland, and the like are as well.

Slowly but surely, the city of Los Angeles is recovering, and people’s lifestyles are going back to normal.

Once your vaccination is completed, you will be able to enjoy your stay in Los Angeles by enjoying sightseeing around the many famous places here, or improving your English with a short term language school program.

By placing yourself in an all English environment, this is also a great opportunity for those interested in beginning their English studies.


Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions regarding the program. We look forward to hearing from you!
