SB County gives vaccine priority to seniors

San Bernardino County continues to administer Pfizer and Moderna vaccines for COVID-19, but demand for the vaccine continues to outpace supply.

People 65 years old and older are still receiving top priority, and more appointments are expected to be available in the next week or so, according to a statement on the county’s website.

“We are making every effort to make this process easy for seniors, many of whom are not experienced computer users,” said board Chairman Curt Hagman in the statement. “This is an unprecedented effort to provide literally thousands of vaccine doses as quickly as possible.”

Only people aged 65 and over who live or work in San Bernardino County may get an appointment. Proof of age is required to receive a vaccination.

Senior residents can go to https://sbcovid19.com/vaccine/65plus/#load to sign up to receive alerts announcing appointments. The county has also extended hours for its vaccination hotline (909) 387-3911 and added staff to handle calls.
