San Luis Obispo County is now offering COVID-19 vaccines at clinics in Paso Robles and Arroyo Grande, without an appointment.

In addition, vaccine appointments are available at county clinics in Arroyo Grande, Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo, for those who wish to confirm their preferred time and vaccine type. More than 50 percent of all county residents over 16 years of age have already received at least one dose of the vaccine.

“Now is the time to get the vaccine, it’s never been easier,” said Dr. Penny Borenstein, county health officer. “I encourage everyone who hasn’t yet gotten the vaccine to take this opportunity to get the vaccine easily and at no cost, while we are able to provide these large-scale community clinics across SLO County.”

To get a COVID-19 vaccine without an appointment, residents can visit the county’s vaccine clinics at the Paso Robles Event Center or the South County Regional Center in Arroyo Grande during days and times the clinics are open. For up to date clinic hours visit Recover SLO.


This is the final draft of Choices,

If after June 1st people want to go into public places without a mask, it’s OK.

You don’t want the shot,no problem.

I will take my mask off.

You don’t want me to buy in your store without one?

I will take my business somewhere else.

Remember Lady’s,



and the right choice is to support your country in it’s fight against COVID, rather than some trivial “freedoms”


Hey Mazin, freedoms are never “trivial.”


My 4 year old wears a mask no problem and has done so since she was 3 at the start of the whole thing. She cannot get a vaccine yet and will almost certainly die if she catches Covid due to a hereditary disease that affects her lungs. Your “freedom” which is being infringed upon is doing what is best for the greater good. “Ask not what my country can do for me, but what can I do for my country?” is the attitude we all should have about this. So sad that everyone only cares about themselves these days and that children are more mature about it than grown men who are being crybabies about something so trivial as having to wear a mask in public places


It’s sad to see this continue to be such a contentious issue. I think it’s easy to forget that not everyone can get the vaccine yet… and some may never be able to. But it does seem like mask mandates are going to start getting scaled down as case rates drop. Hopefully, that means there will be plenty of N95 masks available for those who can’t get the vaccine; as I understand it, N95 masks are the most effective at protecting the wearer… right?
