More than 2,300 doses of COVID-19 were flown into Humboldt from Fresno County after Public Health identified a shortage of vaccine for this week’s clinics.
This week’s allocation of COVID-19 vaccine failed to arrive in Humboldt County due to a shipping error. Humboldt County Public Health worked with the state to find extra doses and found two trays — or 2,340 doses — of Pfizer vaccine at a medical office in Fresno County. When transporting those doses presented an additional challenge, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims responded immediately, tasking her Sheriff’s Air Support Unit with delivery. Following a plane ride, all doses safely arrived in Humboldt this morning and were delivered to Public Health.
Humboldt County Sheriff William Honsal extended his gratitude to Sheriff Mims and the entire Fresno County Sheriff’s Office. “When our county was in need of support for its vaccination efforts, Sheriff Mims stepped up,” he said. “This is another example of neighbors helping neighbors, and I want to thank everyone involved for their work to keep our community healthy.”
