Starting Tuesday May 11th 2021 the Covid-19 vaccination site at the Palm Springs Convention Center is offering extended hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays.


The hours on Tuesday and Thursday are 8:30 a-m to 7 p-m.


The hours on Monday, Wednesday and Friday are 8:30 a-m to 4:30 p-m.


You can walk right in and get a vaccine at the Convention Center, you don’t need an appointment.


However, you won’t know how many other people decided to  walk in at the same time you did, so you won’t know how long the wait is.


If you make an appointment at, you have a specific time to show up, and get the vaccine.


Riverside County residents who are 16 and older are eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine. Residents 18 and  older can get the Moderna vaccine.


Teenagers 16 and 17-years-old must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to get vaccinated.
