NEW (4/26/21) Janssen vaccine (J&J) has been cleared for use as of 4/25/21. Please see the press release from the CA Department of Public Health here and the FACT SHEET COVID19 Johnson and Johnson Fact Sheet.pdf



El Dorado County continues to direct all residents to contact their health care provider as their first and best option to receive a vaccine.

SCHEDULE A VACCINE APPOINTMENT 

All county partners have been moved over to the state's required MyTurn system.  Residents can register in the state's MyTurn system to be notified by email or text when they become eligible for a vaccine AND when an appointment becomes available!  

It does not work with landline phones.  

Visit MyTurn.ca.gov for more information.  Register at MyTurn.ca.gov to receive notification of available clinics posted in that system.  You will be notified by the system of vaccine available in your area. 
 

SECOND DOSES: If you registered for your first dose though MyTurn and were not prompted to register for your second dose at the same time, you should register again to be notified when clinics are available.  

If you are registering for an El Dorado Public Health Clinic through MyTurn, we still request that you print, complete, and bring with you the MyTurn Registration Form provided above.

If you need assistance registering for a #COVID19 vaccine via MyTurn or have questions, including verifying your appointment, there's a Chat function you can use at the bottom of the homepage. There's also a hotline for assistance 7 days a week: 1-833-422-4255.
