Vax for Vets

There is no mistaking the positive impact vaccines have had in the battle against COVID-19. As the region continues to break out of the pandemic bubble, the County is focused on providing easy vaccine access, especially in hard-hit and hesitant communities. Veterans and military families in East County don’t have many vaccination options in their community, so the VA, STEP Program, SD Veterans Coalition and the VFW teamed-up to host a vaccination clinic in Lakeside.

No-cost COVID-19 testing sites remain operational around the County. Veterans can visit for the most up to date vaccination options.  For a complete list of County testing and vaccination locations, visit
