GLENN COUNTY, Calif. - Vaccine shipments were delayed due to severe winter storms throughout the country, but Glenn County scheduled clinics this week were not impacted, according to Glenn County Health and Human Services Agency.

Glenn County received help from its healthcare partners, Enole and Ampla.

Next week, Glenn County HHSA Public Health said people with appointments should plan to go to the appointment. Public Health will notify the public if an appointment is changed.

Public Health will continue vaccinating people in Phase 1a and priority groups in Phase 1b. That includes people 75-years-old and over, 65-years-old and older with underlying conditions and emergency services.

After the California Department of Public Health released updated guidance for sports, Glenn County does not qualify for outdoor high-contact sports due to the county’s increase case rate.

The state allows high-contact sports for counties in the Purple or Red tier with a daily COVID-19 case rate at or below 14 per 100,000 people. Currently, Glenn County has 30.7 cases per 100,000 people.

Public Health plans to announce more information about vaccine eligibility expanding to all Phase 1b Tier 1.

For more information, Glenn County Public Health Department can be contacted Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at (530) 934-6588 or COVID@countyofglann.net or visit www.countyofglenn.net/COVID19
