COVID-19 Vaccination

Are you interested in getting the vaccine? 

Please fill out this form to be placed on our contact list. Our team is working through our COVID-19 Vaccine Contact List to place individuals into their appropriate Phases and Tiers, setting priority vaccinations based on risks such as age and underlying conditions. The vaccine is only being administered by appointments at this time. The scheduling team will then reach out to individuals based on their priority level to start scheduling appointments. . 

Our team is working hard to reach out to those who are currently eligible to get them scheduled. We are working with our partners at John C. Fremont, Yosemite Medical Clinic, and Pioneer Pharmacy and will continue to offer vaccinations in other locations throughout the county. To see who is currently eligible please see the phases below. 

When can I get a COVID-19 Vaccine?

Our goal in Mariposa County is to vaccinate as many people as we can within a short amount of time.  Vaccine rollout through the county will be determined by several different factors such as vaccine availability and acceptance within specifically designated group categories.  Check out more information below about the different groups that have been given priority by the California Department of Public Health.

CDPH Phased Rollout Recommendations

California is committed to a fair and equitable allocation and distribution process. 

  • It is important that every Californian is vaccinated according to the rollout plan so that our state can fully recover and thrive once again. 
  • Individuals with the highest risk of becoming infected and spreading COVID-19 will receive vaccines first, but later in 2021, most Californians will have an opportunity to get vaccinated. 
  • No one should bypass the established vaccine allocation and distribution process.

Why Should I Get Vaccinated?

We understand that some people may be concerned about getting vaccinated once a COVID-19 vaccine is available in the United States. While these vaccines are being developed as quickly as possible, routine processes and procedures remain in place to ensure the safety of any vaccine that is authorized or approved for use. Safety is a top priority, and there are many reasons to get vaccinated.

  • COVID-19 vaccination will help keep you from getting COVID-19.
  • COVID-19 vaccination will be a safer way to help build protection.
  • COVID-19 vaccination will be an important tool to help stop the pandemic.

Learn more about why you should get a vaccine on the CDC's website.

Vaccines are another tool in our toolkit

While the vaccine is not 100% effective, we must use all the tools we can to layer on protection for our community. Our main goal is to help stop this pandemic. We can achieve that by using the tools we have such as:

  • Vaccination
  • Proper hand hygiene
  • Social distancing
  • Proper Mask wearing 
  • Staying home when sick

Where can I get a Vaccine?

When we begin our Phase C Vaccinations that are open to the general public by age group, there will be several places around the county where you can receive a vaccine. Similarly to our yearly Flu Vaccination Clinics, we will be scheduling clinics in Mariposa, Yosemite, Coulterville, Greeley Hill, and more.  Appointments can also be made through other healthcare providers.  More information will be published on our website as well as through social media and news outlets.
