Governor Says We Are Weeks Away From Vaccinations For All

Governor Gavin Newsom says we are just a few weeks away from when all categories will be gone, and people of all ages will be able to get COVID-19 vaccinations.

The governor says as April 1st, everyone 50 years old and older will be eligible. And, he says by April 15th, the state will open the eligibility door to everyone over the age of 16.

It’s expected the amount of vaccine the state is getting will double in the next month, to more than three million doses a week.

Santa Barbara County is opening the door a bit early to those 50 and older. People can get shots March 28th through April 3rd at the Dick DeWees Community and Senior Center in Lompoc. Other sites in the county will start serving people 50 and up April 1st.
