News Release

San Benito County COVID-19 Vaccination Interest Portal is live

Platform is only for those individuals identified in Phase 1B. It is not a vaccination appointment system.

Information provided by County of San Benito.

The San Benito County Public Health Services COVID-19 Vaccine Interest Portal is now live. Residents of San Benito County who are identified in Phase 1B Tier 1 and 2 can complete the interest form, which will provide Public Health Services the ability to notify those interested about where they may obtain a vaccination as the phase and tiers progress.

It is not a vaccination appointment system, it is a tool to eventually schedule a vaccination appointment. COVID-19 vaccines are allocated from the California Department of Public Health. All counties, including San Benito, are allocated a limited supply of vaccine at this time due to manufacturer limitations. It is uncertain from week to week how much vaccine will be made available to the county.

The Vaccination Interest Portal can be found here: https://hhsa.cosb.us/covid-19-vaccine-info/
