When Can I Get Vaccinated?

Your medical provider may be offering COVID vaccination appointments! If you are 65 or older, please contact your provider to see if appointments are available.

Public Health is moving foward with getting as much of our community vaccinated as quickly as possible and are ordering as much supply as we are able. Hopefully the supply will improve in the coming weeks.

Vaccinations are currently focused on vulnerable elders, teachers and school staff, and are provided by appointment made in collaboration with local senior centers and school districts, on Mondays, Fridays & Saturdays at the Clearlake Senior Center and Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at the Fairgrounds in Lakeport. These are by appointment only. Please do not show up without an appointment.

We strongly encourage people not to call the Senior Centers or School Districts at this time. They will reach out as they work through their lists.

Safeway Pharmacy in Lakeport is offering appointments to those eligible and as supply allows, Monday-Friday, 11am-1pm and 2-5pm, starting  Monday, January, 25, 2021.
Visit https://mhealthcheckin.com/covidvaccine?clientId=1611269027315&region=Delaware&urlId=/vcl/0983lakecounty to schedule. *Supply is very limited and appointments will fill in quickly.

Future Phases Pending guidelines from California Department of Public Health TBD: Pending CDPH guidance


The California Department of Public Health has convened a Drafting Guidelines Workgroup which is leveraging national prioritization frameworks and reviewing data regarding occupational exposure and COVID risk to prioritize sectors across phases and tiered population groups. Counties will follow these guidelines in administering vaccine.

However, given the number of people falling into the various tiers in a specific county, the uptake of those in the priority group in getting vaccinated, and the logistics and timeline for use of the vaccine so that no doses go to waste, counties may be in different tiers in administering vaccine to their population.
