Barton Health to Administer COVID-19 Vaccinations to High-Risk Patients

Posted: 02/22/2021

(South Lake Tahoe, CA) – Barton Health, in partnership with the El Dorado County Public Health Department, will receive a limited allocation of COVID-19 vaccines in support of the county’s vaccination effort. Following California’s tiered, age-based system for vaccination distribution, Barton will administer approximately 1,600 vaccines to high-risk patients at a drive-up clinic on February 26 at Lake Tahoe Community College.

Barton will only be administering the vaccine to pre-registered patients with an appointment. Barton Health will contact eligible patients directly beginning February 23 to schedule their appointment through MyChart. Appointments will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis until all doses are allocated. People who show up at the clinic without an appointment cannot be accommodated.

Barton Health will continue to request vaccinations from the county, and as available, will administer them to eligible patients utilizing the State of California’s tiered eligibility system.

Individuals not contacted by Barton who meet the eligibility requirements for the vaccination as defined by the State of California or the State of Nevada, should visit their county public health department websites for information on registration and current appointment availability:
