Thanks to "an excess number of COVID-19 vaccine doses today," Palm Springs officials say they are welcoming people to the Convention Center distribution site with or without an appointment today. You're eligible if you live or work (with proof of employment) in Riverside County and are 16 years of age or older. City officials say you can make an appointment but it's not required.
Health officials in Riverside County say walk-ins will be accepted at several vaccine clinics including Chatigny Senior Center in Beaumont. The other locations are Moreno Valley Mall, Heritage High School, and Tahquitz High School. This is for today only, according to Dr. Geoffrey Leung.
