The Desert Healthcare District will be giving Covid-19 vaccines to residents of Thermal on Thursday March 25th 2021.

 

First though, you have to sign up.  You can do that between 3 in the afternoon and 8 at night on Tuesday March 23rd at Desert Mirage High School in Thermal.

 

You have to meet the same eligibility criteria…be over 65 or a healthcare worker, or work in farming or food prep,  essential grocery store workers, or be between 16 and 64 with a medical condition.

 

 

Some of the people who get medical care at the Central Neighborhood Health Foundation in Coachella are also getting the vaccine there at the clinic at 1490 Sixth Street. For more information, call 760-314-3714.
