Several ways to receive COVID-19 vaccine

person getting vaccine

To help end the pandemic and protect you, your loved ones and those around you, the County and State are encouraging everyone who can to register for the COVID-19 vaccine.  

Gov. Gavin Newsom announced today that Californians 50+ will be eligible for the vaccination starting April 1. Every Californian 16 and older will be eligible for vaccination on April 15. To obtain a vaccine, registration is required. Folks who are not yet eligible should register now to be placed in a “virtual waiting room” where they will be notified when they can receive the vaccine.   

The County of Orange is currently vaccinating Phase 1A, Phase 1B, ages 65+ and people ages 16-64 with medical conditions in accordance with current State guidelines. Phase 1B, Tier 1 includes folks who work in education; food service; grocery and agriculture; childcare; and emergency services. You can review the requirements via Phase 1B on the State’s website and contact your employer for proof of your eligibility if you fall into one of the employment categories.  

In addition to the County’s Othena website, you can register on the State’s site as well as local pharmacies like CVS and Walgreens. You are also encouraged to check with your healthcare provider for vaccine availability.  

For more information about COVID-19 and the Othena website, contact the County’s hotline at 714-834-2000. You can also email questions to support@compositeapps.net

Being eligible and getting an appointment are not the same thing. Othena was a hopeless thing for me............3 tries and finally Kaiser was the one that worked even though I do not have their insurance. They were easy to work with so way to go Kaiser.
