Barton Health Hosts Mass Vaccination Clinic May 21, MyTurn Opens Appointments to Patients Aged 12-15 Years Old

(South Lake Tahoe, CA) – Barton Health, in partnership with the state of California and Vail Resorts, will host a vaccination clinic on Friday, May 21 at Heavenly Ski Resort’s California Base Lodge. Appointments are scheduled through MyTurn, the state of California’s universal vaccine sign-up portal. Barton Health is proud to take part in the ongoing effort to stop the spread of COVID-19.

The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention now endorses the Pfizer vaccine for patients ages 12-15 years old, and these appointments are available via MyTurn. A parent or guardian (18+) will be required to attest that they are scheduling for the minor. For 12-year olds, parent/guardian name and phone number are required; address is optional. For 13-17-year olds, parent/guardian name, phone number, and address are optional. 

First or second dose appointments are available. Patients receiving their first dose at this clinic will not be automatically scheduled for second doses. Barton does not plan to host another mass vaccine clinic; patients will need to follow resources provided in the MyTurn system to book an appointment for their second Pfizer dose, The CDC recommends getting your second Pfizer dose three weeks after the first dose, however you can get it anytime within six weeks of the first dose.

Those interested in receiving the vaccine at this clinic should visit myturn.ca.gov or call (833) 422-4255 to schedule an appointment. Appointments will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis until all doses are allocated.

The COVID-19 vaccination is proven safe and effective. Information about the safety and efficacy of the vaccination is available at BartonHealth.org. Contact your primary care provider to discuss personal health concerns regarding the vaccination.
