Only two new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in Humboldt County today, bringing to 4,325 the total number of county residents who have tested positive.

Hundreds of appointments are still available at a Public Health mass-vaccination clinic planned at Eureka High School for this Saturday, June 5, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.. Both Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be offered by appointment and to walk-ins as long as doses remain available. Spanish speakers will be on-site to assist.

All residents age 12 and older can receive the Pfizer vaccine. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine is authorized for people 18 and older. 

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine will also be offered at a clinic scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, June 9 at the Mattole Grange located at 36512 Mattole Road in Petrolia.

Walk-ins are available at all Public Health clinics, but making an appointment in advance is encouraged and helps to prevent wasted doses. To book an appointment or to view the full clinic schedule, go to

Local vaccination data provided by the state’s California Immunization Registry (CAIR) has been updated on the Humboldt County Data Dashboard. Some highlights include:

  • Humboldt County Public Health and other approved local vaccinators have administered a total of 118,561 doses of COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Nearly 50% of the county’s total population has received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, meaning they have some protection against the virus, and 57% of residents age 12+ who are currently eligible for vaccination have received at least one dose.
  • More than half of county residents age 40 and older are fully vaccinated, and about 75% of those over the age of 65 are fully vaccinated.

Please note that the CAIR database does not include all information about vaccine doses administered through the federal government’s various vaccination programs. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) yesterday reported that 60.4% of Humboldt County’s eligible population has received at least one dose of vaccine, more than 3% higher than the report from the CAIR database. 

CDPH has launched a program called “Vax for the Win” to offer cash incentives to state residents who get vaccinated against COVID-19. Two million Californians will receive $50 gift cards after being fully vaccinated, and 40 state residents will win cash prizes ranging from $50,000 to $1.5 million. Learn more about the program at
