BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. – Butte County Public Health (BCPH) said it is actively working to respond to the state's change in COVID-19 vaccine priority.
The California Department of Public Health announced Wednesday that in order to increase the pace of COVID-19 vaccine distribution the State is prioritizing individuals 65 and older.
At this time, BCPH said it remains in the planning phase for individuals ages 65 and older. BCPH is currently moving through the prioritized groups in phase 1b, tier 1 as indicated on the vaccine graphic located on the BCPH vaccine website.
While the vaccine is available for some groups in phase 1b, tier 1, due to vaccine supply and distribution, the groups in this tier must be sub-prioritized. BCPH says it will keep the public informed once the vaccine is available for persons 65 and older.
Residents can get information about the COVID vaccine and register to be notified when they qualify to get the vaccination, visit the Butte County Public Health COVID-19 Vaccine page, here.
