CalOES will provide ASL Interpreters on the site at all times for 8 weeks from 9 am to 7 pm.
In order to see if you are eligible for a vaccine, you must go online at https://myturn.ca.gov/ to fill out a few questions. If you are eligible, then you will be allowed to schedule an appointment. When you choose the date of your vaccine appointment, you also will be given a second date for your second vaccine. During the process, you will have different questions that you will need to fill out and answer.
Now, how will the process of drive-thru vaccine supersite work?
Caution: There will be only one lane for the drive through.
There will be three steps to proceed: Remember, during the entire time, you must remain inside the vehicle and wear a mask.
1) First tent: This will be a check in to get you ready for the vaccine. They will explain what you will need to do, collect your main information to match the registration you completed online.
2) Second tent: This will be where you will receive the vaccination. They will explain more about the vaccination process and answer any questions you may have before proceeding with injecting the vaccine.
3) No tent: You will need to drive and park in the parking lot and stay for fifteen minutes to ensure you are ok. It is to make sure that you do not have any severe reactions to the vaccine. A nurse will approach your vehicle and check in with you. If you feel well, they will discharge you and you can leave the site.
You are strongly advised to arrive 15 minutes before your selected appointment. Once you arrive at the first tent, communicate with the nurse that you will need an ASL interpreter. You can either write on paper, gesture or use your phone note to notify the nurse.
