Roseville, CA 95678
9:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Closed for lunch 12 – 12:45 p.m
12:45 p.m. – 2:45 p.m
Gate closes at 2:45 p.m. MUST be in line before 2:45 p.m. to receive a vaccine. Please do not arrive excessively early to appointments as this can unnecessarily create lines. Please stay in your car until your appointment time.
1.Is it drive through or walk up?
The fairgrounds clinic is walk up, primarily due to the location combined with the requisite 15 minute observation period that is required after someone receives a vaccine. There is a ramp for accessibility. The clinic is held in Jones Hall and attention is paid to distancing and ventilation in the building. Masks are required.
2.Are there lines at the fairgrounds clinic? If someone has a hard time standing for long period of time, what can they do?
Because the clinic is by appointment the lines are quite short – about 10 minutes from the door or 30 minutes from the gate. The lines are distanced and masks are required. If someone has difficulty standing, they can talk to a clinic staff member upon arrival to arrange a chair.
3.When are new appointments added/when should I check the website?
New appointments are added based on vaccine availability. Placer receives its vaccine allotments weekly and the amounts have been variable. When new appointments are available, they are most often posted late in the week. Text PLACERVACCINE to the number 898211 to receive text alerts when large batches of new appointments are made available.
4.How do people sign up for second doses?
The county will be contacting people by email to direct them to the Placer site when it is time for their second dose. Given the variability of vaccine supply, and ensuring people get their second doses on time, we cannot schedule clinics more than a week in advance. While individuals can get their second dose at another location if they choose, as long as it is from the same manufacturer (Pfizer or Moderna) as the first dose, it is preferred to receive both doses at the same location.
5.If someone has difficulty with the registration system or does not have computer access, where can they go?
The county is using the state’s PrepMod software for registration and understands that the non-dynamic nature of scheduling in this system has been frustrating for many. The state is expected to launch a new registration software by the end of January, and it is our hope that this system will be more user-friendly.
We are establishing partnerships with community organizations who can help clients with technology challenges navigate evolving vaccine information.
6.What if I see messages in the registration links for the county that indicate only Phase 1a is eligible, not 65+ or others?
The state’s PrepMod software is in the process of updating web portals to reflect 65+ eligibility (the county does not have access to edit this language). Eligible residents in this category may proceed making an appointment and ignore messages to the contrary.
7.Can someone sign up for an appointment at the county clinic even if they have insurance through another provider?
If someone is an eligible member of a regional health system (Kaiser, Sutter, UC Davis, etc.) we encourage you to check with your provider first. Many multi-county entities such as Sutter and Kaiser receive vaccine allotments that are separate from the county’s. However, if you are unable to book an appointment and there are appointments available through the county, you can book through the county.
8.What do I need to bring with me to my appointment?
Proof of residency and age are required for age-based groups; proof of employment in Placer County is required for employment-based groups. Please also have your appointment date and time on hand when you arrive.
Examples of acceptable documentation include:
Proof of age (for 65+) such as:
California ID card or REAL ID card (from the DMV)
Social Security card
Medical document/records from medical provider, clinic, or doctor
Membership card for a seniors only organization
Any official document that includes name and date of birth
Proof that you live in Placer County (for 65+; must show your name and address) such as:
California ID card or REAL ID card (from the DMV)
Post- marked letter
Voter registration confirmation
Rent receipt or lease or letter from landlord
School or employment document
Tax, Bank or insurance document
Post Office change of address confirmation
Letter or document from a Faith-based organization, shelter, non-profit institution with the name/address of issuing organization
Membership card – Union, YMCA, store club card, fitness center, community or neighborhood association, apartment building association
Proof that you work in Placer County (for employment-based groups such as education, childcare, emergency services, etc.; must show your name and business name or address) such as:

Professional license AND a photo ID
Payment stub with your name AND a photo ID
Letter from employer with verification AND a photo ID
For second dose appointments, please bring your white vaccine record or electronic vaccine record card AND a photo ID.
9.Can I arrive early?
Please try to arrive shortly before your appointment. Arriving earlier can create unnecessary lines.
If you do arrive early, please remain in your car until your appointment time.
Reminder: Do not register if you do not meet eligibility requirements. Any individuals who register but fall outside current eligibility requirements (health care workers in Phase 1A and Placer residents 65+, or education, childcare and emergency services workers who are employed in Placer County) will receive a cancellation email.
