Riverside County opens coronavirus vaccinations to residents aged 16 and over – Press Enterprise



As of Tuesday, April 6, Riverside County will offer coronavirus vaccines to residents aged 16 and over, nine days before the state plans to do so, officials said Monday.

“Extending eligibility will allow the last large group of Riverside County adults to be vaccinated and will bring us one step closer to herd immunity,” County Public Health Director Kim Saruvatari said in a news release. “Giving the vaccine to a younger population, where we are seeing an increase in cases, is a big step forward.”

In the same issue, supervisor Karen Spiegel said: “More vaccines are now available and opening up the conditions will move us even further towards our goal of vaccinating the majority of our residents.”
