San Diego, CA–The County of San Diego is expanding the hours and extending appointment windows at three COVID-19 vaccination sites, and adding more pop-up and drop-in clinics.
The hours will run until 8 p.m. at the vaccination sites in Oceanside, Chula Vista, and El Cajon. The extended hours will give people access to vaccination shots after work, by appointment, or just by walking in.
The vaccination sites are offering both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, with or without appointments, where people can get first or second doses, even if they received first doses at a different site.
The sites are offering shots from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. at:
Oceanside – Sunday to Thursday – North Coastal Live Well Health Center, 1701 Mission Avenue.
Chula Vista – Sunday to Thursday – South Region Live Well Center at Chula Vista, 690 Oxford Street.
El Cajon – Tuesday to Saturday – East Public Health Center, 367 North Magnolia Avenue.
The county also announced it was extending appointment windows for its sites, from two-to-three days to seven days, to give people a wider time to set vaccination appointments.
County officials also said they’re working with the Metropolitan Transit System, senior centers and community organizations to set up more mobile, pop-up, drop-in vaccination sites to make it even easier for people to get shots.
