COVIDIMG

Riverside County health officials have scheduled more COVID-19 vaccine clinics throughout region
Participants must register and have an appointment to get vaccinated

Registration is now open for several COVID-19 vaccine clinics planned for those in Phase 1A (all tiers), and 1B (tier 1), which includes individuals 65 and older.

There will be more than 11,000 additional appointments available across all RUHS-Public Health clinics from Jan. 19 – Jan. 22. Appointments are available on a first-come, first-serve basis within the current tiers. More appointments will be available as additional vaccine is received.

“We continue to expand our county vaccine clinics, so that more people can get the vaccine and be protected from the virus,” said Board Chair Karen Spiegel, Second District Supervisor. “Our residents want this vaccine as quickly as possible and these clinics will help get it out to the community.”

The clinics will provide vaccines free of charge, however those who show up must register prior to arrival, have an appointment, and show proof of eligibility (badge, business identification, letter of proof from employer). Medical insurance information will be requested.

Those 65 and older must have proof of age, such as a driver’s license. Seniors who need help registering can call 2-1-1.
