• Question: How much is the COVID vaccine? Answer: The vaccine is free to the person receiving it. Costs are covered by the federal government. You may be asked for your health insurance card because this is one of the ways the provider will be paid for providing the vaccine.
• Healthy people age 50 and older will be eligible to receive vaccine starting Thursday, April 1. If
you are in this group and would like to make an appointment, please go to www.ShastaReady.org, click on “Vaccinations” and follow the instructions in “Step 1.”
• If you’re 65 and older, you only have one day left to be first in line for vaccine before eligibility expands! Appointments are available Wednesday at Public Health. Go to www.MyTurn.ca.gov to pick your spot.
• Shasta County remains in the red (“substantial”) tier. Our adjusted case rate increased, from 4.5 to 5.1 daily cases per 100,000 residents. The unadjusted case rate is also 5.1. This number needs to drop to 3.9 or lower to be at the orange (“moderate”) tier level. Our positivity rate stayed the same at 1.8%. Please continue to wear your mask in public, keep your distance, avoid gatherings outside your household, get tested regularly and get vaccinated when it’s your turn.
