CORRECTION -  This article earlier reported that people who are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine can register by calling Oroville Hospital.  Shanna Roelsson, Hospital Director of Communications, called to say that is not the case.  The hospital is offering clinics and appointments are needed, but right now their clinics are full.   Roelsson said you still need to register with Butte County Health (here) to be notified when you are eligible.   And you can monitor the Oroville Hospital Facebook page (here) for new clinic information. 

BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - People ages 75 and older can now get their coronavirus vaccine in Butte County, but many don’t have internet access and are running into problems signing up.

Butte County Public Health officials say they set up a call center to help people complete the online form.

People can call (530) 552-3050 for assistance. As it stands now you must have a valid email address to register for the coronavirus vaccine on the county's online registration portal. 

When it’s your time to get vaccinated the health department will email you.
The communications manager for Butte County Public Health, Lisa Almaguer says anyone who doesn’t have an email address should reach out to friends and family for assistance.

"There are other ways for people in the community who do not have internet access to register. One is the use of public library computers, we also encourage people to solicit help from family and friends or neighbors for this process, or perhaps a family member’s email could be used if they don’t have one for that notification," she said.

Right now Butte County is in Phase 1B of Tier 1. That includes people ages 75 and older, essential emergency workers, and education groups.
