Rumor Alert: There is misinformation spreading on social media that the County is considering a vaccine passport. That is not true. Vaccines are optional. It is your personal choice. The County of Ventura does not have a vaccine passport requirement and does not intend to issue a vaccine passport requirement. While we encourage everyone to get vaccinated for individual and community protection against serious complications from COVID infection, vaccination is an individual choice. There is no mandate or requirement to get a vaccine.
