Free Ride to Your Vaccine

County Vaccination Information

Starting January 29, we will offer free transit rides for San Diegans who need to get to and from their COVID-19 vaccine appointment location. This includes all vaccination sites in the county including Super Vaccination stations, hospitals, and other community immunization locations!

You only need to show a confirmation email of your vaccine appointment for that day – either a printout or on a smartphone – to get on board for free. (LIFT customers call LIFT reservations to schedule your ride.)

County-hosted COVID-19 vaccinations sites are currently open for people in all tiers of Phase 1A, including adults 65 and older and healthcare workers.

The County of San Diego is operating several immunization centers, including three North County San Diego sites:

  • Escondido – 649 W. Mission Avenue, Escondido, 92025
