The COVID-19 vaccine supply is very limited. There are currently hundreds of thousands of people eligible for vaccination in Sacramento County and it is expected to take months to vaccinate all eligible individuals in Sacramento County. If you have health coverage, first contact your provider for vaccinations appointments.

Appointments are required for vaccination and are available on a first come, first served basis. If you are unable to schedule an appointment it is because available vaccinations appointments are filled. Continue to check back for additional appointments.
