Ten additional cases of COVID-19 were reported today. One previously reported case was determined to be out of jurisdiction, so the total number of Humboldt County residents who have tested positive for the virus now stands at 3,160.
Humboldt County has been allocated a total of 4,740 doses of COVID-19 vaccine — 2,400 Moderna and 2,340 Pfizer — for next week. Public Health is planning to administer at least 405 second doses and 996 first doses at large-scale vaccination clinics in collaboration with local health care providers. The remaining doses will be distributed to other approved local vaccinators.
Currently, people age 70 and over, health care workers, emergency services workers, licensed child care providers, K-12 educators and support staff are prioritized for vaccination. Planning is underway for higher education as well as food and agriculture. Vaccination appointments are invitation only. County residents can sign up to be notified when an appointment is available for their age group by filling out the online COVID-19 Vaccine Interest Form.
