• There are four vaccination phases planned in Shasta County, and Phase 1 has 3 tiers (1a, 1b and 1c). Shasta County is in Phase 1a, Tier 1. This “jumpstart” phase offers the first vaccine doses to health care workers and residents of long-term care facilities. In Shasta County, there are nearly 14,000 health care workers. Health care workers are high priority because they risk being exposed to COVID-19 each day on the job and they sustain our medical services during this pandemic. To review Phase 1a, visit the COVID-19 Vaccination Rollout. The other phases will be added as supplies increase. The county’s COVID-19 Vaccine Task Force is working closely with the state and community partners to prioritize vaccine recipients and plan for administering future doses.

• Testing is available for people with and without symptoms at many locations. If you have symptoms and/or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive, please follow the isolation/quarantine instructions until you can be tested and receive test results.
