Cross-reference the date of your 1st dose against the dates listed under the “Second Dose Appointments” header on the Placer County website: Placer.ca.gov/vaccineclinics. If your 1st dose appointment date was later than the dates currently listed, you will receive an email at the end of the week prior to the calendar week of your second dose (scheduling) date.
  3. If your 1st dose appointment date falls within the windows where you should’ve received an email already, please check your Junk or Spam email folder.

  • For website issues for PCPH's Roseville clinic at The Grounds, our call agents can also provide callers the scheduling support email: techsupport@vaccineconsent.com Tech Support is available for those whose website isn’t loading (browser issues), etc. Although the Tech Support email should work at this time still, Placer County's registration system is expected to change in the next few weeks to MyTurn - so the Tech Support email is likely to change or become inaccessible.
