San Diego County To Begin Helping Large Groups Hold Vaccination Events



San Diego County will partner with employers, business chambers and other groups to help host large-scale vaccination events by providing vaccines and medical personnel to administer them, it was announced Friday.

Board of Supervisors Chair Nathan Fletcher, with leaders from the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Otay Mesa Chamber of Commerce, made the announcement from the San Diego Mission Bay Resort.

"This new initiative to partner with employers and chambers who want to host large vaccination events is one of the many adjustments we are making to our vaccination program to make it easier for people to get the vaccine," Fletcher said. "The best way to restore our economy and put San Diego on a path to recovery is for everyone to get the vaccine."

Any entity capable of coordinating a large vaccination event can visit, click on the "Host a Vaccination Event" button, fill out the form, and a county team member will follow up. A large event is considered to be hundreds, if not thousands of participants. READ MORE
