Nov. 15, 2021 - 1 Hospitalization, 60 New Cases Reported Since Friday

Humboldt County Public Health reported today 60 new cases of COVID-19 since Friday, bringing to 9,713 the total number of residents who have tested positive for the virus. The hospitalization of a resident in their 70s was also reported.

Over the weekend, 392 individuals were vaccinated at Public Health clinics held in Eureka, Hoopa and McKinleyville that included pediatric, first and second doses, as well as additional doses and boosters.

On Tuesday, Public Health will hold its first pediatric vaccination clinic in Eureka. Pediatric clinics will offer vaccine to children ages 5 to 11 only.

Other family clinics will be held in Honeydew, Arcata and Miranda during the upcoming weekend. Family clinics give priority to children ages 5 to 11, but siblings, parents and guardians of children who are getting vaccinated can receive any dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Although walk-ins are allowed at most regular Public Health clinics and many pharmacy vaccination sites, a sharp increase in demand for boosters has caused some delays and significant wait times at some locations. As a result, appointments are required for pediatric clinics. Appointments are strongly recommended for all other clinics and are the best way to ensure a shot is available during your visit. Appointments can be made on the state’s MyTurn.ca.gov vaccination portal.

Humboldt County’s vaccination and testing services are available free of charge. Adults who receive their first or second dose of vaccine at a Public Health office in Eureka, Willow Creek or Garberville can choose a $25 Renner Petroleum or Coming Attractions Theatres gift card. Incentives are offered on a first-come, first-served basis at those locations only.

Vaccines, including boosters, are widely available at local pharmacies. To check the availability of a specific vaccine, visit the vaccines.gov page, or text a ZIP code to 438829 to locate a nearby pharmacy offering vaccines.

On Tuesdays, OptumServe will offer mobile testing on an alternating basis in Trinidad and Garberville. On Tuesday, Nov. 16, testing will be held in Garberville at Jerold Phelps Hospital at 733 Cedar St. and runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. OptumServe’s mobile testing site will be held the same hours on Tuesday, Nov. 23, at Trinidad City Hall located at 409 Trinity St. Both sites will be closed from 11 a.m. to noon and 2 to 3 p.m.
