In-home support service provides and community healthcare workers can get the Covid-19 vaccine, at places like Safeway.

Kathy Fowler was the first person to get vaccinated at the Safeway on Pine Street. Fowler tells Action News Now everything went pretty smoothly and she felt fine after getting her shot.

“It was very easy,” said Fowler. “I was the first one on their list so I was their guinea pig. But she did everything nice quick and easy, you don't even feel the vaccine.”

As a healthcare worker in the county, fowler felt it was important to protect the people she worked with.

“It actually relieves me because the people I work with are elderly and they're all pretty scared right now,” said Fowler.

Shasta County is in Tier 2 of Phase 1A but hopes to reach Tier 3 by the end of this week.
