Year: 2022

San Bernardino County is the largest county (by area) in the contiguous United States. As part of its effort to support the community during our emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the San Bernardino County Department of Behavioral Health (DBH) created several ‘pop-up’ COVID-19 vaccination clinics beginning in early 2021 to help ensure DBH clients, their families, and staff have timely access to vaccines and subsequent booster vaccines. Between February 2021 and December 2021, about 3,000 vaccinations were successfully administered to approximately 2,220 members of the general public, many of whom were DBH clients, as well as approximately 700 San Bernardino County employees from multiple departments.
