February 18, 2021: VACCINATION APPOINTMENT ASSISTANCE FOR SENIORS

COVID-19 VACCINATION APPOINTMENT ASSISTANCE FOR SENIORS 

 Thanks to the leadership and engagement of the Rialto City Council, the City of Rialto is offering assistance to seniors in scheduling COVID-19 vaccination appointments through the Rialto Community Services Department. If you, a friend, or a loved one needs assistance in scheduling an appointment online you can call us Monday-Friday 8am-5pm at 909-877-9706 and our staff can help you through the process. If you do not have access to the internet or a computer you can schedule an appointment for individual service at the Grace Vargas Senior Center at 1411 S. Riverside Avenue, Rialto, CA 92376. COVID-19 safety practices are in place and masks are required. The San Bernardino County COVID-19 hotline is also available with expanded hours Monday-Friday 9am-8pm at (909) 387-3911.

 Options for COVID-19 Vaccinations

All county residents should remember vaccination sites are not the only place to receive a vaccine. People are encouraged to check with their healthcare provider and in some cases their employer for vaccine information, availability and locations.

 The state has set up additional vaccination sites, via OptumServe, including one at Ayala Park in Bloomington and one at the Yucaipa Community Center. Senior residents interested in scheduling appointments at either of these sites should use a dedicated OptumServe appointment site located here.

 Finally, a number of hospitals, pharmacies and physician practices have been provided doses of the vaccines. Residents should check the County’s vaccination webpage often to see if appointments are available. Links to all potential vaccine providers can be found at https://sbcovid19.com/vaccine/
