SLO County opens up COVID-19 vaccines to people 65 and older – KSBY San Luis Obispo News

The San Luis Obispo County Public Health Department is now opening up COVID-19 vaccine appointments to people 65 years of age and older.

County health officials say the decision comes at the recommendation of the local Vaccine Task Force based on current vaccine supply and risk of serious outcomes from COVID-19.

Appointments for next week will open at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 11. To schedule an appointment, visit www.Recoverslo.org/VaccineAppointments or call the County’s Phone Assistance Center at (805) 543-2444.

Health officials say appointments are limited due to limited vaccine supplies.

The county expects to administer more than 6,100 first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine at next week’s clinics in San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles, and Arroyo Grande.

Vaccine appointments are also available at select pharmacies and French Hospital Medical Center as their own supplies allow. Click here for information on other local vaccine opportunities.
