UPDATE: Appointment slots for next week were filled up by noon Thursday.


ORIGINAL STORY: San Luis Obispo County residents ages 75 and older can register once again for COVID-19 vaccination appointments next week.

Public health officials say they plan to vaccinate more than 4,000 people this week between the two current sites in Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo and around that same number next week.

A third site is being added at Arroyo Grande High School.

When appointments first opened last week, they were full within a few hours.

Appointments are available on a first-come, first-served basis and people are asked to not come to any of the vaccine distribution sites unless they have an appointment.
