If you are still looking for places to get the Covid-19 vaccine, availability is not as widespread as it was several months ago.

 

You can still get the vaccine at the County Fairgrounds in Indio. But there are fewer time slots available than there were back in March and April 2021.

 

There are 70 time slots available each day on Thurs Aug 5th and Fri Aug 6th.

 

And 45 slots available each day… Mon Aug 9th, Tues Aug 10th, Weds Aug 11th, Thurs Aug 12th, and Fri Aug 13th.

 

The website says walk-in’s are welcome but at the same time, it asks you to book a time to get your vaccine.   And because there are not that many time slots available on any given day, it might be better to have an appt, so you will know they have a vaccine ready for you and you can minimize your wait time.

 

There are vaccines offered at Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage but the only days listed are Fri Aug 6th, Fri Aug 13th, Fri Aug 20th and Fri Aug 27th and again you are asked to click on a time and make an appt.

 

Desert Oasis Healthcare has the vaccine, so does DAP Health, and the Carl May Community Center in Desert Hot Springs.

 

There are no vaccines being offered at the Palm Springs Convention Center, as that location was closed back in June 2021 because so few people were utilizing it. Riverside County has been moving away from large vaccination sites and offering vaccines at numerous clinics and pharmacies instead.

 

The vaccine will be offered at the Palm Desert Civic Center but only on Weds Aug 11th, and you have to click on a time to make an appt.

 

Stores have the vaccine…Walmart, Walgreen’s, The Medicine Shoppe, Albertson’s, Target, CVS, Von’s, Sav-On,  Ralph’s, Rite-Aid.

 

You can go to www.rivcoph.org or www.myturn.ca.gov to make an appt and see the entire list of locations to get the Covid 19 vaccine.

 

The State of California Public Health Dept is calling people too, to see if you need the vaccine or a ride to a vaccine location.
