• SECOND DOSE CLINIC: If you need a second dose of Moderna and you received your first dose on or before Jan. 26, please come to a vaccination clinic on Saturday, Feb. 20, at Shasta College. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the clinic is first-come, first-served. You must bring your CDC card that shows the date of your first vaccine, your identification and this paperwork. This is a walk-up clinic.
• To sign up for your first dose: Go to www.ShastaReady.org, select Vaccinations, and click the blue oval, “Tell me when it’s my turn.” Public Health will contact you when they have an appointment available. It may be several weeks, as supply is still limited.
• Shasta County remains in the purple (“widespread”) tier. Our adjusted case rate decreased from 23.0 to 14.8 daily cases per 100,000 residents. The unadjusted case rate is 13.5, but was adjusted up because the county’s per capita testing volume is lower than the state average. Our positivity rate decreased from 5.5% to 3.9%. If our positivity rate and equity metric both remain in the orange tier for two more weeks and our case rate continues to decline, we could move into the red tier two weeks from now, even if the case rate is not yet down to the red tier. Please continue to wear masks and physically distance!
