Riverside County will open appointments Saturday (Jan. 23) at noon for next week’s vaccine clinics in Corona, Menifee, Beaumont and Indio. Approximately 10,000 appointments will be available for anyone within Phase 1A (all tiers) and Phase 1B (tier 1), which includes individuals 65 years of age or older. All clinics on Mondays and Fridays will be reserved only for seniors.

“This is welcome news for so many of our residents who are extremely eager to get the vaccine,” said Board Chair Karen Spiegel, Second District Supervisor. “We are just as eager to get our weekly shipments of vaccine so we can offer more appointments. The county team is doing a tremendous job vaccinating thousands of people at these public health clinics within just a few days of receiving the vaccine.”
