COVID-19 Vaccination Locations
The County of San Diego Government has set up several vaccination locations across the county. Appointments are no longer necessary to receive a vaccine, but are available if preferred. As additional sites are activated, details will be provided via the links below. Please continue to check there for new listings.
If you have any questions, please either call 2-1-1 San Diego, or email the County at email@example.com. Please note that emailing the county does have a 3-4 day response rate.
Vaccine Finder is a free, online service where users can search for locations that offer vaccinations. They work with partners such as clinics, pharmacies, and health departments to provide accurate and up-to-date information about vaccination services. Pharmacies such as CVS and Vons, not found on the links above, are listed at this website.
Second Vaccination, Rescheduling, Group Scheduling, Transportation Resources
You do not need to receive your vaccination at the same location you received your first. You only need to make sure you receive the same vaccination shot as the first time (Pfizer, Janssen, or Moderna).
If you were not prompted to make your second appointment when you had your first, need to reschedule, want to schedule for your family or group, or are in need of an in-home visit or transportation, visit California Public Health’s MyTurn.
If you or your loved one is not able to drive to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, Lyft is offering FREE rides to and from vaccination appointments.
