• Vaccine update:
– Who? People in Phase 1A (healthcare workers, long-term care facilities, workers in emergency
services) and people 75 and older. Vaccine supply is still extremely limited.
– How? Click the blue oval labeled “Tell me when it’s my turn” and complete the short survey. If you don’t have Internet access, call (530) 245-7890 to get on the list. Public Health will call or email you when they have an appointment available for you. It may be several weeks before you are contacted, so please do not call Public Health to check on your status.
– What about my second dose? We will have a mass vaccination clinic for people who need their second dose, including those who were vaccinated at Benton Airpark. Details will be confirmed next week.

• Public Health is using the information from the “Tell me when it’s my turn” survey (referenced in the bullet above) to schedule individuals for appointments at Public Health and Shasta Community Health Center. We will also hold an appointment-only mass vaccination clinic for ages 75+ on Saturday in Shasta Lake City. This clinic is open to people who received an email notification, and capacity was limited to ensure people do not have to wait in long lines. More clinics will be offered soon. We look forward to a time when we have plenty of supply so we can offer many easily accessible options for those who choose to be vaccinated.
