BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Butte County has launched a new coronavirus vaccine registration portal to make it easier for people to be notified when it’s their turn to receive a vaccine.

The portal, which is located on Butte County Public Health's website, allows you to register as an individual or a business.

This process will allow health officials to notify you when the vaccine is available for the phase and tier that you are categorized under. 

This registration process does not book a vaccination appointment. It collects contact information so individuals can be notified when they are eligible.

The county also plans to open up vaccine clinics soon. "We are in the process of planning for community vaccination clinics. This is in the preliminary planning stages. The details are not finalized just yet. As of right now are looking at having two clinics a week. One clinic in Chico, one in Oroville. The estimate is that we're able to vaccinate up to 500 people in each of these clinics. The clinics would be based on the phases of distribution as defined by the California Department of Public Health," said Butte County Public Health communications manager, Lisa Almaguer.

Butte County is currently in Tier 1 of Phase 1B. This includes essential emergency services and the education and childcare group.

Individuals or groups who think they may have been missed during Phase 1A can notify public health and still receive the vaccine.

Wednesday, the state announced a vaccine prioritization for people ages 65 and older.

BCPH says its working to respond to that change in age priority but it'll take some planning and logistics before this can happen here. Right now Tier 1, in Phase 1B includes people who are 75 and older.

So far the county has received more than 9600 individual registrations and around 250 business registrations since the Covid-19 vaccination portal went live on Wednesday. BCPH says this will make it easier for them to notify people when they are eligible for the vaccine.

After plenty of morning clouds, we had plentiful sunshine this afternoon with weaker wind and warmer highs. The clear sky and light wind will lead to a chillier start Friday morning, and we'll have a breezy and mild Friday before more changes arrive.
