Vaccine eligibility is expanding again in Ventura County.

On March 25, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced that every Californian 50 and older would become eligible on April 1, and all adults 16 and older on April 15. Ventura County said in a Twitter post that it would align with that timeline.

You must be a resident or employed in Ventura County to be eligible to receive a vaccine there.


If you are not yet eligible, sign up for Ventura County’s notification system to find out when you can make an appointment to get your vaccine.

Ventura County also sends email updates on weekdays about the vaccine. You can sign up for Ventura County’s vaccine update newsletter here.

How to sign up for the vaccine in Ventura County

As of Monday, March 29, Ventura County has transitioned all of its vaccine sites to California’s website. People with limited internet access can call MyTurn at (833) 422-4255 to make an appointment.
