February 4, 2021: SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY UPDATE ON COVID-19 VACCINATIONS
Demand for Vaccine Exceeds Available Supply of Doses
Since the State opened COVID-19 vaccines to persons aged 65 and over on Jan. 13, San Bernardino County residents have scrambled for every available appointment made available to receive their first dose. Unfortunately, the State continues to fall short in providing enough of the vaccine to meet the enormous demand.
The County has set up four public vaccination sites, including the newest location at the Ontario Convention Center, in addition to today’s “super site” event at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. It took less than 20 minutes for all 3,500 appointments at the speedway event to be filled.
The County is hoping this week’s announcement by the White House on a 16% increase in vaccine supply flowing to states every week for the next three weeks to a minimum of 10 million doses per week will help increase local supplies and the number of appointments available to county residents.
Individuals having trouble with online registration can call the County’s information hotline at 909-387-3911 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The following are the four County Public Health sites currently set up to administer vaccines:
San Bernardino Health Center
606 E. Mill St., San Bernardino, CA 92415
Ontario Health Center
150 E. Holt Blvd., Ontario, CA 91761
Ontario Convention Center
2000 E Convention Center Way, Ontario, CA 91764
Hesperia Health Center
16453 Bear Valley Rd., Hesperia, CA 92345
On Tuesday, the State of California opened an OptumServe vaccine clinic at Ayala Park Community Center, 18313 Valley Blvd. in Bloomington that will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Both first and second dose appointments will be scheduled at the same time. OptumServe has a Helpline for people who need assistance making an appointment 1-877-218-0381 and the call center is open from Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
