SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — A mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinic is moving around the county vaccinating those who are currently eligible.
The county is still in the 1A to 1B distribution tiers, which includes healthcare workers, first responders and those 75 and older.
Public Health officials plan to finish vaccinating 1,200 people across four dates at their mobile clinic.
The clinic was at Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria on Jan. 20 and 22, the Lompoc Veterans Memorial Building on Jan. 21 and at Santa Barbara City College on Jan. 26.
Health experts said 862 people were vaccinated on January 26. And once more vaccines are available the mobile clinic can vaccinate between 1,500 to 2,000 per day. And they’re doing so with Santa Barbara County firefighters lending a hand.
All vaccines were by appointment only.
As more vaccines become available, public health officials hope to have more dates open for their mobile clinic.
