If you qualify to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and haven't been able to get an appointment yet in San Luis Obispo County, local health officials encourage you to begin checking the county's website or calling in daily.

San Luis Obispo County is currently vaccinating health care workers and residents 75 years of age and older.

Health officials say that as they receive more vaccines and some people cancel their existing appointments, more appointments are opening up.

To check on the availability of appointments, visit or call (805) 534-2444. The website will be updated daily at around 9 a.m. on weekdays.

Currently, health officials say more than 5,000 first-dose appointments are booked for this week at the three vaccine clinics in Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, and Arroyo Grande.

County officials say they are prepared to administer as many as 3,000 doses of vaccine a day as supply increases.

The county says about 9,000 residents over the age of 75 have received their first dose of the vaccine over the last two weeks.
