San Luis Obispo County to close mass COVID-19 vaccination sites June 4

People still need to sign up for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment at the mass vaccination site at Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo. Clinics in Paso Robles and Arroyo Grande are accepting walk-ins during regular hours.

San Luis Obispo County announced it will close the three mass vaccination clinics in Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo and Arroyo Grande on June 4.

People who can’t make it to one of the clinics before they close can still get a COVID-19 vaccine from their Health Care Provider or a pharmacy.

The county will be shifting its focus to mobile vaccination clinics to serve communities disproportionately affected by COVID-19.

“When we stood up these large, temporary clinics, our goal was to administer vaccines as swiftly as possible to our residents, beginning with those most at risk for COVID-19,” said Dr. Penny Borenstein, County Health Officer in a press release. “I’m proud to say this made the vaccination process easy and fast for tens of thousands of residents. Our commitment to ensuring our community has access to the vaccine has not changed – but now that it is available from many other providers, we can shift our focus to mobile clinics.”

First and second dose appointments are currently available at the county’s three mass vaccination clinics. Walk-in vaccinations are also available at the Paso Robles and Arroyo Grande Clinics.

People who get their first dose of the vaccine at one of the county’s mass clinics after May 14th can get their second dose from a regular public health clinic or a pharmacy.

As of April 30, nearly 148,000 doses had been administered to county residents and more than 64,000 people had been fully vaccinated.

To schedule a first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine through the county’s mass clinics, visit the State of California’s website MyTurn. For more information on the clinics’ hours, visit the county’s vaccine website.
