GLENN COUNTY, Calif. — Glenn County Public Health conducted a clinic Tuesday to provide the first 50 doses of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine to frontline healthcare workers.

Among those vaccinated were hospital staff from Glenn Medical Center and skilled nursing staff from Willows Post Acute. 

Mercy Medical Center is serving as the distribution and storage site for Glenn County’s Pfizer vaccine. Glenn County has been allocated 255 doses of the Pfizer vaccine and 200 doses of the Moderna vaccine in the initial shipments of the vaccine.

This initial vaccine is specifically for people working in health care settings.

“This vaccine offers relief for the health care workers who have been on the front lines and our most vulnerable residents,” said Leigh McDaniel, Chairman of the Glenn County Board of Supervisors. 

Because the supply of vaccine will be limited at first, everyone should continue to do things to help stop the spread, said public health officials Tuesday. They added, this means wearing a facemask, staying at least six feet away from others, washing your hands, staying home if you are sick, and avoid large gatherings.
