The San Luis Obispo County Public Health Department is closing its COVID-19 vaccine clinic located in San Luis Obispo for a second day on Thursday because of the stormy weather.

Health Officer Dr. Penny Borenstein says people who had appointments scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 28 at the San Luis Obispo clinic will be contacted and have their appointments rescheduled for next week.

The clinic was also closed on Wednesday, and Dr. Borenstein said the rain and wind had torn up some of their tents.

Appointments made for Friday remain on the schedule; however, starting Friday, the clinic will move from Sierra Way to Cuesta College.

The move was originally scheduled to take place on Monday. Health officials say the Cuesta College location is bigger and more accessible for those receiving vaccines.

The Paso Robles and Arroyo Grande vaccine clinics will remain open at their current locations.

San Luis Obispo County is currently vaccinating health care workers and residents 75 years of age and older. Appointments for next week open starting at 9 a.m. on Thursday.
