South Coast COVID-19 Mass Vaccination Site Announces Plans To Close

Goleta site will be operational on Thursdays through July 29th

With most of the people on the Central and South Coasts who wanted COVID-19 vaccinations already getting their shots, one of the largest remaining mass vaccination sites in the region is preparing to close.

The Cottage Community Vaccine Clinic played a big role in Cottage Health administering more than 110,000 doses of vaccine.

The clinic in the parking lot next to Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital has already cut back to a one day a week operation. It’s open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursdays through July 29th.

Nearly 60% of Santa Barbara County’s population aged 12 and up is now fully vaccinated.
