Thirty-seven new cases of COVID-19 were reported today. A previously recorded case was determined to be a duplicate, so the total number of Humboldt County residents who have tested positive now stands at 2,494.

On Thursday, approximately 260 people were vaccinated at the Public Health clinic, with just over 400 appointments scheduled today. Next week, Public Health expects to vaccinate an additional 1,350 people in its clinics. Local health care providers are also continuing to reach out and schedule vaccinations for their patients, including Phase IA health care workers and people 75 and older. 

The Humboldt County Joint Information Center is currently testing an online interest form for individuals who want to be notified when vaccination appointments are available for their priority group. The form is expected to be officially launched Monday afternoon. 

Humboldt County Public Health Director Michele Stephens said, “This interest form is another step toward expanding vaccine access to more members of our community as we plan for additional groups and clinics, but how quickly that happens depends on how many doses we receive from the state.” 

The state is working on a tracking tool that will provide the most up-to-date information on all doses of the vaccine sent to Humboldt County. Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Ian Hoffman pointed out that current statewide tracking tools are rudimentary and make it difficult if not impossible to determine how many doses are in the county or available through providers. 

“Some doses are distributed directly to approved vaccinators and others come through Public Health,” Dr. Hoffman said. “A streamlined tracking tool will make it easier for us to plan future vaccination clinics.”
