• We are sorry to have to report two deaths today. They were a man in his 30s and a woman in her 80s.

• Some may think that because most people who die from COVID have an underlying health condition, that condition is to blame for the person’s death. The reality is that many people in Shasta County, and the nation, have an underlying health condition, such as obesity, hypertension or type 2 diabetes. However, the conditions in general may often be managed by medication or lifestyle changes and may never cause their death. The concern is that these conditions may make COVID-19 symptoms worse, which can lead to death. In these cases, the death would not have happened without a COVID infection.

• Question: How do I know the vaccine is safe? Answer: COVID-19 vaccines teach your body how to fight the virus if you are exposed. COVID-19 vaccines were tested with many thousands of adults of different ages, races and ethnicities to make sure they are safe and effective for all adults. California’s COVID-19 Scientific Safety Review Workgroup confirmed the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines with an independent review with other western states. A nationwide system allows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to watch for safety issues and make sure the vaccines stay safe.
