Vaccine appointments are currently available in SLO County for the following groups:  
  1. Health care and community health workers who currently provide direct, in-person care in SLO County. Review the full list

  2. Adults age 65 and older. We have very limited vaccine supply currently. If you are at lower risk of COVID-19 exposure or serious health outcomes, please wait to get vaccinated so that those who are at higher risk can get their vaccine first.
