Twenty-nine additional cases of COVID-19 were reported today. One case was reclassified from PCR+ to Antigen+, and one previously recorded case was removed due to an out-of-area lab reporting error. The total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus now stands at 2,877.
The county will receive a total of 3,975 doses of COVID-19 vaccine next week, 3,000 Moderna and 975 Pfizer, as part of its weekly allocation from the state. Humboldt County Public Health is reserving 870 doses for use at its large-scale vaccination clinics next week, while the remainder will be distributed to local approved vaccinators.
Regardless of which provider is administering the dose, vaccinations are offered by appointment only at this time and are scheduled based on the state’s prioritization schedule.
All county residents are encouraged to fill out the online interest form to be notified when vaccine is available for their tier, especially those age 75 and over. Humboldt County Public Health is using this information to connect individuals to vaccination clinics. It takes about two minutes to complete and can be found at humboldtgov.org/InterestForm.
