BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Butte County Public Health officials said at this time there are enough doses to accommodate for the expanded eligibility in the county. 

Lisa Almaguer with Butte County Public Health said Thursday, the Chico community vaccination clinic had over 1,800 people who were scheduled to get their vaccine. She said there are other community, hospital, and pharmacy clinics throughout the county.

Those interested may go on the county's website and select from one of their many options when it comes to scheduling your appointment.

Almaguer said right now, allocations in Butte County remain steady. 

"As always Butte County Public Health will continue to offer the vaccine to anyone who wants it as long as their eligible and as long as our allocations continue and there's no indication at this time that those allocations will decline so we are looking good," Almaguer said.

The county wants to encourage everyone who is eligible to get their vaccine now and not wait for a specific dose.

The state's scheduling system My Turn has also now updated its website. It offers the opportunity for vaccine registration if you're 16 and older. 

Thursday, the state opened eligibility to everyone over the age of 50. In two weeks on April 15, eligibility will re-adjust to all Californians 16 and older.

As expected, the northern California Red Flag Warning was cancelled a few hours early since the wind has weakened quickly compared to recent days. Our weather is still hot and very dry, so please continue to be cautious.
