700 vaccinations were given out Thursday at one of the two free drive-thru flu shot clinics in the Santa Marcos High parking lot.  The next clinic is today from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. 

There is also a vaccination tent for those who arrive on bikes or walk-in.  The free clinics are coordinated by The Santa Barbara Public Health Department, Sansum Medical, Medical Reserve Corps and student nurses from Santa Barbara City College.

Earlier in the week, two clinics were held in Lompoc.  Next week on October 13th  and 15th there will be clinics at Alan Hancock College in Santa Maria.

@Running - Could also try calling Walgreen's or Sansum's pharmacies. I know Sansum has the regular shots and recently re-stocked on the high dose shots. Things could change quickly though. See also the PDF in my 12:06 PM post.

My Wife and I got our flu shots at CVS Turnpike store yesterday (Friday 9 October). I made an appointment on line at 12:30 for 2:00. It did take a half hour of time waiting in lines to 1) Register 2) Pay (Covered 100% by Medicare) 3) In the line for the shot. Might have taken just as long in a drive through line since there is always paperwork to complete etc. While we were at CVS other people showed up without an appointment and were also accommodated.

Very long line at San Marcos drive-by to get the shot. We went to CVS. Main pharmacist is wearing mask down under chin while filling prescriptions or talking to customers. . He put mask on while giving shot. No contact while giving shot. Stand at arms length away and he gives shot. No cotton swab or things that might spread contamination. He probably gets a daily test.

I saw the pharmacist bad mask practice at CVS too.
Very bad behavior!
Also customers pulling down their mask to speak to the pharmacist like they don't believe they can talk through a mask.
