COVID-19 vaccinations now available at Rite Aid in Arroyo Grande

February 24, 2021

Rite Aid is now offering COVID-19 vaccines at stores in Arroyo Grande and Santa Maria, by appointment only.

Rite Aid’s coronavirus vaccinations are administered by a certified immunizing pharmacist. Customers who receive the first dose of the vaccine are automatically scheduled for their follow-up dose.

The pharmacy chain has vaccines available for people SLO County deems eligible. Currently, only health care workers and people 65 or older will be allowed to sign up.

To book an appointment online, eligible customers in the area can visit Rite Aid’s website. To learn more about eligibility and find out timely, accurate information on where to sign up for an appointment, additional information can be found here.

7PM Wednesday experience. Signed up 3:30 PM FOR SAME DAY. Easy straightforward Rite Aid website registration. Also we signed up an age 80 non-driving neighbor and we all car pooled to AG. Store was organized, moved orderly and no big delays or lines, diligent young employee disinfecting every chair in pre- and post-injection areas before you sat down. Thank God for Trump expediting the approval process by years, and private enterprise pharmacy (Rite Aid) speed, courtesy and organization once they got some product. Over one third of people were clearly below age 40-ish so not certain how that happened, but OK.

What a RELIEF from the weeks of Bornstein chaos of “Please log on daily at 9AM, no wait, hold on a moment, we tossed yesterday’s arrived doses out immediately 3PM like we do every week, so nothing, again, nothing today at 9AM for any appointments.” “Please check back to this county website each day 9AM so you can again learn that we again have nothing available and did not observe our own policy of releasing appointments at 9AM like this SLO County website has said for weeks.”
