San Bernardino County offers walk-up coronavirus vaccinations
SAN BERNARDINO – (INT) – Interest in the COVID-19 vaccines is fading and health officials are warning that it’s not time for complacency.
The most recent figures show that less than half (42.5%) of San Bernardino County’s adults have had any vaccine shots. Just over one-fourth (28%) have been fully vaccinated.
To entice people to get their shots, clinics are offering free, walk-up vaccinations. Appointments are still encouraged. Walk-up individuals will not need to bring any additional information to a site, they should be prepared to register on site, which will include answering health screening questions.
“Our on-site vaccination teams will do their absolute best to vaccinate every person that shows up,” County Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman said.

COVID-19 — and its variants — remain a threat, health officials warn.
San Bernardino County is still seeing hundreds of new cases every week, but unlike last year, the greatest numbers of new cases involve adults aged 18-34, followed by those between the ages of 35 and 49.
