• SECOND DOSE CLINICS: Second-dose clinics are scheduled tomorrow (Saturday) for those who received Moderna on Feb. 6 at Shasta College, and for school staff who received Pfizer on Feb. 13 at Vibra. Times and locations are at www.ShastaReady.org; click on “Vaccinations.”

• The Johnson and Johnson one-dose vaccine will arrive in Shasta County early next week. This vaccine has been proven to be safe and effective, and, while supplies are limited, it will help ensure full vaccination of eligible populations for whom it is challenging to provide two doses, such as people who are homebound and mobile populations.

• A beautiful weekend is ahead, and walking is a wonderful way to improve your physical and mental health. Join the month-long Shasta Parks and Playgrounds Walking Challenge to enjoy some healthy fun with your family. From Fall River to Cottonwood and everywhere in between, you will discover playgrounds and parks that might be brand-new to you. Sign up at https://healthyshasta.walkertracker.com. Participants can earn gift cards and prizes, including passes to Turtle Bay, Shasta Caverns, the Redding Aquatic Center, and an annual Whiskeytown Pass. All walkers who finish the course will be awarded a sip/snack cup.
