Vaccines

As more vaccinations start to become available to interested members of the public, we wanted to provide some informational resources for our residents.

While vaccinations are not being distributed by the City of Clovis, we are working closely with Fresno County and their healthcare partners to ensure our residents have the most up to date information on where you can learn about your eligibility and the availability of vaccines.

To the right, you will find a list of resources we have gathered from various government and healthcare websites. We have learned that these sites are updated regularly, so please check back often.

The Clovis City Council has adopted an Emergency Order which allows the use of our Round Up Transit Service for those seniors, 65 and older, who need transportation to and from vaccination locations within the Round Up service boundaries (North to Shepherd, West to West, South to Kings Canyon, East to Thompson). 

A limited number of trips will be available per day and reservations need to be made in advance.

FAQs

The American Rescue Plan was the third legislative package passed to address the impacts of COVID-19. This has provided a total of $4.515 trillion dollars in COVID-19 related relief thus far. This is significantly more than what was provided during the great recession (2010 – Approximately $.9 trillion). The regulations and program parameters are still being developed and will likely adjust over the next 3-4 years.

How you will be vaccinated depends on when you are eligible and the available supply at the time you are eligible. 

Schedule with My Turn

People with a high chance of exposure and those 65 or older are currently eligible for vaccination  and can schedule appointments immediately. In certain counties they can book them on the myturn.ca.gov site or by calling (833) 422-4255. Appointments are available in Spanish.

Due to high demand and limited supply, each county is setting their own geographic requirements. Most limit vaccination to those who live or work within the county. Appointments not satisfying the local requirements may be cancelled, even after you arrive at the vaccination site. Check the county’s vaccination website to make sure you are eligible before making an appointment.

 

Educators and childcare providers under age 65 will be able to book an appointment on myturn.ca.gov with a special code. The state is working with local education and childcare organizations to distribute these codes. Learn more about the K-12 school staff and childcare vaccine allocation plan(this is a pdf file).

The Clovis City Council has adopted an Emergency Order which allows the use of our Round Up Transit Service for those seniors, 65 and older, who need transportation to and from vaccination locations within the Round Up service boundaries (North to Shepherd, West to West, South to Kings Canyon, East to Thompson).  Round Up is a service for disabled residents who call in advance to schedule trips. The City Council has determined that certain eligibility requirements should be suspended to allow this service to be used by all seniors, not only those with a disability.

A limited number of trips will be available per day and reservations need to be made in advance.

To reserve a ride on Round Up, please call (559) 324-2760.
