Starting Sunday, a healthcare worker vaccination clinic is opening at the Indio Fairgrounds.
Riverside County is currently vaccinating healthcare workers in the state's phase 1A tiers one through three.
Healthcare workers must bring their ID badge or proof of their employment as a healthcare worker in order to be vaccinated.
“The staff here is checking to make sure the folks coming to get vaccinated meet those qualifications and everyone that’s coming in has to have an appointment as well just due to the large uptick that we’re having so far," Branden Boyd, senior EMS specialist for the Riverside County Emergency Management Department told News Channel 3 on Sunday.

The vaccination clinic will also run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. tomorrow, January 11.
People in Phase 1A tiers one through three can get vaccinated by appointment only at the Indio Fairgrounds Sundays and Mondays. On Tuesday through Saturday, the drive-in clinic is used for COVID testing the general public and not vaccinations.
“Keep your eyes out for when the next tiers open up or when the next phase opens up so you can be available for vaccine itself and then as for the vaccine we’re doing today, there’s a booster or repeat shot that needs to happen 28 days later and so it’s just knowing what vaccine you go so you know so you can get the repeat for that vaccine," Boyd said.
