Today, the County of Ventura announced that every person 16 years and older in Ventura County is now eligible for a free COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine is one of the most important ways to help end the pandemic. While you wait for your vaccine, it is important to continue to practice safe measures to protect yourself, your loved ones, and to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 by wearing masks, practicing social distancing, avoiding gatherings, and washing your hands frequently.

As a local vaccine distributor, the County of Ventura is organized and prepared to distribute the vaccine as supplies are received. To register for your vaccine or to get notified of when appointments become available, please visit or by calling the California COVID-19 Hotline at 1-833-422-4255 Monday thru Friday from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm or Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m..
