The County of Santa Clara announced it will demobilize all COVID-19 mass testing and vaccination locations by the end of the month.
The County administered 1.9 million vaccines since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and became the most vaccinated large county in the country in the months following the initial release of the COVID-19 vaccines according to a recent press release.
“We are grateful to County residents, who immediately recognized the importance of getting vaccinated to protect both themselves and each other,” said Susan Ellenberg, President of the County of Santa Clara Board of Supervisors. “In our County, more than 90 percent of the eligible public has received at least one vaccine, a staggering number given our size.”
The closure of testing and vaccine operations coincides with the end of the federal and state COVID-19 emergency declarations. The State of California’s COVID-19 State of Emergency will expire on Feb. 28, while the Biden administration announced all federal COVID-related public health emergency declarations will end on May 11.
Closure dates for Santa Clara County’s mass vaccinations sites are as follows:
- Santa Clara County Fairgrounds – testing Feb. 24, vaccinations Feb. 25
- San Martin – testing and vaccinations Feb. 25
- Mountain View – vaccinations Feb. 28
Vaccination appointments can be made at www.sccfreevax.org through Feb. 28.
