Appointments available starting Thursday morning
EL CENTRO, Calif. (KYMA, KECY) - Imperial County leaders have announced plans for a second mass vaccination clinic.
The drive-thru clinic will be held Friday, February 12 at Imperial Valley College. Vaccines will be distributed by appointment only. Also, only those 65 and older will be eligible for shots. The county has around 1,500 doses available.
Appointments may be made online at the Imperial County Public Health Department's website. Registration will open Thursday, February 11 at 8 a.m. PST.
Those who do not have a computer, or internet access, can schedule an appointment by calling 442-265-6700 or 442-265-7033. ICPHD has a limited number of operators, so the wait time could be much longer when using this method. ICPHD urges patience.
