NEW VACCINATION SITE & 2nd DOSE FOR SPEEDWAY VACCINATION EVENT

 Inland Empire Health Plan and County Launch New COVID-19 Vaccination Site

To support essential COVID-19 vaccination efforts, the Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP) has partnered with San Bernardino County to open a new super vaccination site.

The clinic is at IEHP’s headquarters at 10801 Sixth Street in Rancho Cucamonga, with hours of operation from Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The vaccination clinic is scheduled to run for approximately six months. Appointments are required and can be made at SBCovid19.com/vaccine.

County and IEHP nurses will administer approximately 500 vaccines per day and plan to work up to administering 1,000 vaccines per day, based on availability. The clinic will include options to support individuals with mobility issues and an observation area to monitor for any side effects.

 Seniors Vaccinated at Speedway on February 2 Reminded to Get Follow-up Dose This Week

Senior residents who received an initial dose of the COVID-19 vaccination at the County’s mass vaccination event at the Auto Club Speedway on February 2 are reminded that they are due to receive their follow-up shots next week.

This second dose only mass vaccination event is scheduled for next Tuesday, March 2. Only residents who got their shot at the first event were able to schedule appointments for this second shot. This week’s follow-up shots will be provided at the same location: the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. The process will largely repeat the initial event.

The County has taken steps to prevent long waits, including adding more lanes and parking space. Returning residents are asked to not arrive more than 15 minutes before their scheduled appointment.

Like the first time, people who get their second shot will be asked to wait 15 minutes to ensure there is no serious reaction from the second dose. You may have some side effects, which are normal signs that your body is building protection. These side effects may affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. For more advice on possible side effects, see this page on the CDC COVID-19 website.
