San Bernardino County Launches 'Our Shot for Hope' Vaccine Pop-Ups

County of San Bernardino

San Bernardino County is looking to fight off sluggish COVID-19 vaccination numbers with the appeal of fire trucks and ice cream this weekend at a vaccine pop-up.

This is part of a new county program called “Our Shot for Hope” that will offer the COVID-19 vaccine to walk-ups.

The first opportunity will be this Saturday, in the city of San Bernardino where residents will see a parade of county fire trucks, a mobile vaccine van, an ice cream truck and churro wagon headed to Nunez Park on West Fifth Street at 12:30 p.m. No appointments are needed for the vaccinations and treats which will be given at the park from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. 

Inland News Today reports that while more than one million doses of the vaccine have been given, less than half of county residents have received one dose and less than one third are fully vaccinated. The latest state data also shows the number of people getting at least one jab has been dropping since the last week of April.
