SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – San Diego County officials announced Monday that COVID-19 vaccines will now be available for those age 75 and older.

Citing “a slowing of appointments at COVID-19 vaccination sites,” the county confirmed a change was made to the eligibility requirement.

County Public Health Officer Dr. Wilma Wooten said, “We took this action today to add individuals 75 years of age and older because they are at the greatest risk. It remains our intention to expand vaccines to those 65 and older the week of January 25, contingent of vaccine availability.”

The expanded requirements will be in place at the downtown San Diego vaccine “super station” and other county locations where coronavirus vaccines are being administered.

Health care workers (Phase 1A/All Tiers) and San Diegans 75 years of age and older (Phase 1B, Tier 1) can make appointments to receive vaccines and are the only groups that can visit a vaccination location.
