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.

• A recent Supreme Court ruling led the State of California to update its guidance for places of worship and cultural ceremonies. In both the purple and the red tier, churches can be open indoors at 25 percent capacity with modifications, including masks and physical distancing. This limited capacity is designed to protect people from exposure to people outside their immediate households while allowing them to still practice their faith. Churches are encouraged to continue to a so provide services through alternative methods, such as streaming services, for those who are at higher risk.

• We still have some room in an appointment-only, first-dose Pfizer clinic planned for tomorrow (February 19). If you meet the criteria to receive vaccine now, you can make an appointment here. Please bring identification, your appointment confirmation and proof that you are a member of one of the groups being vaccinated now.
