Commonly asked questions from our community members
When will we move to the Orange Tier?

The County of Ventura is poised to move to State’s Orange Tier Next Week! The State of California announced on March 30, 2021, that the County of Ventura has met requirements for the State’s Orange Tier for the first week of the two-week required time frame. If the County meets the Orange Tier requirements at the next review on April 6 the County will be able to move to Orange on April 7 at 12:01 am. As with the shift to the Red Tier, the County will continue to align with the State’s framework for Orange Tier activities.

What is the waiting period for second dose vaccines?

After receiving your first dose, you will become eligible for your second dose after a waiting period of 21 days if you received Pfizer and 28 days if you received Moderna. You do not need to receive your second dose on the exact date you become eligible. You have a window of 6 weeks from getting your first dose to receive your second dose. Please do not schedule your second dose earlier than recommended. Refer to your vaccination card, which will list the date you received your first dose.

How do I make an appt for a vaccine?

1st Dose Appointment

The vaccine appointment system has transitioned to the state’s My Turn platform. My Turn requires individuals who sign up for a two-dose series (Pfizer or Moderna) to schedule both appointments together at myturn.ca.gov. They will receive a confirmation via email or text that includes appointment information along with a confirmation code. Instructions are included in these confirmations on how to cancel or change appointments.

For those who don’t have access to email or text messaging, schedule and confirm appointments via the MyTurn phone line at 833-422-4255.

Anyone who had registered for their first dose on VC Recovers will need to make their corresponding second dose appointment the same way when eligible at www.venturacountyrecovers.org.

All sites are still by appointment only for eligible groups that live or work in Ventura County. The County’s current assistance line 805-477-7161 may continue to support the community in making second dose appointments. Community members making new appointments for 1st and 2nd dose will need to call the My Turn phone line.

2nd Dose Appointment

There are two ways to secure a 2nd dose appointment:

1) You can also make an appointment on the County’s website when appointments are available: www.venturacountyrecovers.org/vaccine-information/portal/registration-d2/?elig=p1.

2) Call the registration hotline 805-477-7161, which is intended for those with limited access to the internet.

Who can I call if I need transportation to a vaccine appointment?

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 those who need lift assist as well as gurney transportation. The driver will take the individual, wait for them, help them at the site and take them home. To schedule a ride, please call 805-477-7300. You must have a vaccine appointment before you schedule a ride to a vaccine site.
