Vaccine Update
Ventura County we want you to have access to vaccines as soon as possible! We receive vaccines each week from the state and open appointments for the vaccines we are provided. We are not given enough supply to vaccinate all community members at one time. We are advocating for more vaccines and we have the infrastructure to get vaccines in arms as quickly as possible once they are received.
We understand headlines in other places say 65 and older now. Unfortunately, in those places many people in that age range cannot get vaccinated yet because Counties throughout the State are in the same position of not having enough vaccines. The supply issue impacts the ability to expand the vaccine to more sectors at this time.
Once appointments are opened you can register on the Ventura County Recovers website. We will notify those in the current sector when appointments open and we will have phone appointments available too. The link to register is:
You can also call our hotline to make an appointment when they are open. Currently, the hotline has a recording saying all appointments are full. Once more appointments are open an operator will be able to help callers make appointments. The phone number is: 805-477-7151.
The Area Agency on Aging provides transportation services for older adults that are in need of transportation to a vaccine appointment or for COVID-19 testing. This includes people that need lift assist as well as gurney transportation. The driver will take you, wait for you, help you at the site and take you home. To schedule a ride call 805-477-7300. You must have a vaccine appointment before you schedule a ride.
