July 21, 2021 - 27 New Cases Reported Today

Twenty-seven new cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in Humboldt County today. One previously reported case was removed because it was determined to be from another jurisdiction. The total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus is now 4,824. 

Two new hospitalizations were also reported, including one person in their 70s and one in their 80s. 

Humboldt County Public Health and other approved local vaccinators have administered a total of 135,530 doses of COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccination data on the Humboldt County Data Dashboard has been updated with the latest information from the California Immunization Registry. Some highlights include:

  • 49.3% of the county’s total population, which is estimated at 135,940 residents, is fully vaccinated. 56.4% of the eligible population age 12 and older is fully vaccinated. 
  • 55.1% of the county’s total population and 63% of the eligible population has received at least one dose of vaccine, meaning they have some protection against the virus.
  • Residents in the 65 to 74 age group have the highest vaccination rate, with 91% receiving at least one dose and 83.1% being fully vaccinated.

Partially vaccinated and unvaccinated residents are urged to get fully vaccinated as soon as possible to protect themselves, as well as children and medically vulnerable members of the community who cannot get vaccinated. 

Residents with questions or concerns about vaccines are encouraged to speak with their primary care provider or a Public Health nurse, who can be reached by calling the Joint Information Center at 707-441-5000.
