San Diego County announced that residents 65 and older can now register to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at county-level vaccination sites.
The county said that qualified people should first contact their doctor or medical provider. If they cannot get the COVID-19 vaccine from a doctor, they can use one of the county seats.
The county said that only medical staff and people over 65 can visit the vaccination site.
San Diegans can make reservations at the super locations in Petco Park and other counties where the photo was taken. An appointment is required; walking and driving without an appointment will be rejected.
“As I pointed out a few weeks ago, the county expects to expand its eligibility for people 65 and over in the week of January 25. This is part of continuing to focus on the most at-risk groups,”
Patty Maysent, chief executive of the University of California San Diego Health Center, tweeted Saturday that there are 700 vacancies at the Petco vaccine site.
So far, only UC San Diego Health and Scripps Health have expanded in-network vaccination to patients 65 years and older.
On Monday, the county approved vaccinations for people 75 years and older, including people under 1A, who are mainly assisted care facilities and medical staff.
Last week, state public health officials followed CDC’s guidance and announced that people 65 and older can now get the vaccine. However, due to insufficient vaccines, the county decided to wait until more resources were available.
