Mountain View’s Educational Cultural Complex on Tuesday became San Diego County’s latest COVID-19 vaccine site.
The central San Diego location opened its doors just days before the county will expand its vaccine eligibility. On Thursday, adults 50 and older will be able to schedule an appointment for the shot, and anyone 16 and older will be able to get their vaccines beginning April 15.

So far, about 33.8% of San Diego County residents over the age of 16 have been partially vaccinated while 20.6% of that population are fully vaccinated.
As part of the county’s effort to reach vulnerable populations in communities that have been disproportionately impacted by the virus, three vaccine sites will open this week, including Mountain View’s location.
Along with this site, the North Inland First United Methodist Church in Escondido and the Sherman Heights Community Center will administer vaccines beginning this week.
The Mountain View vaccine site at 4343 Ocean View Blvd. will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
