Appointments for Moderna and Pfizer clinics this week can be made at When prompted to “Enter your address or ZIP code,” county residents should enter only “Humboldt County” on the “Let’s Find an Appointment” page of the My Turn website, the third page of the appointment scheduler. This means residents will input “Humboldt County” in two different places. 

All county residents age 16 and older can register, but 16- and 17-year-olds should sign up only for the Pfizer vaccine. Minors must have proof of age and be accompanied by a parent or guardian.  

The following clinics and vaccines are available by appointment and for walk-ins: 

  • Wednesday — Moderna (18 and older)
