The Inyo County Health and Human Services Department and its partner, Northern Inyo Healthcare District, are holding their second mass vaccination clinic at the Eastern Sierra Tri-County Fairgrounds this Saturday and Sunday.

The County’s first mass vaccination clinic was on Feb. 20 and Feb. 21.

“If you were a recipient of one of the 1,013 doses administered at the first vaccination clinic, you must attend the second dose clinic being held this weekend,” says the Inyo County Health and Human Services Department. The first clinic appointments should mirror the second clinic appointments – if a person’s first appointment was at 9 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, then the second appointment will be at 9 a.m. Saturday, March 13.

If you need to verify your appointment day and time can call (833) 422-4255.

Bring identification, wear a mask and wear a short sleeve shirt to make it easier to administer the shot. Wear warm clothing. It’s likely to be cold.

The second dose of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are very important to having the greatest efficacy, which is to say, immunity, against the coronavirus.

The County is currently receiving 500 first-dose vaccines per week.

Beginning Monday, March 15, individuals age 16-64 with certain severe health conditions will be eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccine.
