San Bernardino County’s effort to vaccinate all of its residents has shifted into high gear, with appointments currently available to everyone age 16 or older who lives or works in the County, regardless of health condition or occupation.
Residents ages 16 and 17 can only receive the Pfizer vaccine and therefore can only be served at San Bernardino County Public Health sites and State OptumServe sites. They will also need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to receive the Pfizer vaccine (the only one thus far approved for people under 18). The Moderna and the Johnson & Johnson vaccines are available only to those who are 18 years and older.
Vaccines are administered at no cost. To schedule an appointment, visit the County's vaccination website. Those who need further assistance can call the county’s COVID-19 hotline at (909) 387-3911 Monday through Friday from 9 am to 8 pm.
