VISTA–A new COVID-19 vaccination site will open on Feb. 14 in Vista, capable of providing up to 500 doses daily.
The new clinic will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sundays and Mondays at the Linda Rhoades Recreation Center, located at 600 North Santa Fe Avenue.
All county vaccination super stations and points of dispensing, or PODs, are currently vaccinating people in Phase 1A and people 65 years and older in Phase 1B. All require appointments which can be made at vaccinationsuperstationsd.com. Note that the vaccination superstation at Petco Park will not be vaccinating people for three days due to a delay of a shipment of Moderna vaccine.
County-funded community health workers, known as promotoras, are reaching out to people 65 and older in National City, Chula Vista, Imperial City and San Ysidro directly to help them make vaccination appointments.
The Metropolitan Transit System is offering free rides to people with proof of a vaccination appointment. 2-1-1 San Diego and promotoras also have the capacity to arrange for transportation.
To date, more than 703,000 COVID-19 doses have been delivered to the region with nearly 570,000 administered. The difference between the two numbers represents approximately what is expected to be administered the next seven days and doses still to be entered in the record system. Those vaccinated to date include more than 104,000 San Diegans who are fully vaccinated, while 15.8 percent of the population over age 16 have received at least one dose.
