GLENN COUNTY, Calif. – Glenn County Public Health received shipments of the COVID-19 vaccine this week after the winter storms across the country caused a delay.
Vaccine clinics scheduled for this week are set to continue as scheduled. All clinics this week are second dose clinics and are at capacity for clients that received their first dose one month ago, according to Public Health.
Additional first dose clinics are being scheduled for March in Glenn County. These clinics will serve those who fall in line with Phase 1a and priority groups in phase 1b to include persons over 65, emergency services, and education staff.
Public Health said it will contact all residents on the existing waiting list first to schedule an appointment.
There will also be a new online COVID-19 vaccine interest survey rolled out on Monday, March 1. The survey will allow those 65 and older to register online for the vaccine waitlist. Staff at Public Health said it will use this list to make appointments for the upcoming vaccine clinics. Those appointments will be open to residents meeting the eligibility criteria only.
