BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. – COVID-19 vaccine eligibility is expanding to people 16 and older who live or work in Butte County, according to Butte County Public Health.
Residents 18 years and older are eligible for the Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. BCPH asks people to keep in mind, allocations of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are limited at this time and may not be available.
Residents ages 16 and 17 are eligible for the Pfizer vaccine and must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver and have proof of age at the time of appointment. Currently, the Pfizer vaccine is only available for this age group at the Oroville Community Vaccination Clinic or the Chico Hospital Vaccination Clinic, according to BCPH.
Public Health officials said those using the state's scheduling system, MyTurn, need to check the "65-74" age option to begin the scheduling process. Then, when prompted to enter their date of birth, people need to use their actual date of birth as it is used to verify eligibility when arriving at the vaccination clinic.
