While the COVID-19 vaccine has been available for several months–there are still many adults who have yet to receive their first dose.
Get information if you are eligible (most adults are). Find out what your county is offering. You may go to your county web site here in San Luis Obispo that will be ReadySLO.org. If you prefer you may go to the AARP site.
If you go to ReadySLO.org you can sign up for alerts from the County Health Departmen
In order to sign up: at a minimum you will need to include
- Your full name
- Your date of birth
- Your address
- Your insurance information
- Your phone number
- your email address if you have one
When you get an appointment, you will receive a confirmation by email or text message. You will have some paperwork to fill out. They will ask the usual questions: “have you been out of the country recently?” “Have you ever had a an allergic reaction before?” You can either fill it out online or you can print it out and fill it out on paper. You will need to bring this paperwork with you to the appointment.
This can be a most challenging and frustrating process but it is getting easier now. It sometimes requires hours if ‘refreshing’ to see when an appointment is available but if you use ReadySLO.org it should be relatively easy.
If you need help going online to get this information or fill out some of the forms, please call Extended Family at 805.801.2512 or email us at email@example.com
