Vaccine clinic at Lake Elsinore stadium closes; new site to be located at nearby outlet mall

Outlets at Lake Elsinore location will start operations Thursday

A new vaccine clinic begins operations tomorrow (April 29) at the Outlets of Lake Elsinore mall. The clinic, which is being operated by Curative, replaces a drive-up site that had been established at the Lake Elsinore Diamond Stadium months ago under the direction of Riverside County Public Health Department.

The move was initiated, in part, because the Lake Elsinore Storm, a minor league affiliate of the San Diego Padres, will be using the stadium for its upcoming baseball season.

“We are so thankful to the city of Lake Elsinore and support staff for the use of the stadium for both COVID-19 testing and vaccinations,” said Kim Saruwatari, director of Public Health. “They have been a great community partner.”

Riverside County Supervisor Kevin Jeffries also noted how strong community partnerships have helped residents get vaccinated at convenient locations.

“Lake Elsinore has been a great partner with Riverside County over the past year with both testing centers and vaccination clinics, and we appreciate their assistance,” said Supervisor Jeffries. “With this new location right off the freeway at the Outlets of Lake Elsinore Mall should also provide easy access to vaccines for residents all along the 15 corridor.”

The outlet mall site is located at 17600 Collier Ave., Suite H177, Lake Elsinore.

More than 1.5 million vaccine doses have been administered to Riverside County residents between the county operated clinics and those run by the community partners.

The county offers three types of vaccines – Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson and Johnson – at its clinics. Those 16 and older are eligible to be vaccinated, although individuals 16 and 17 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, and must receive the Pfizer vaccine.
