REDDING, Calif. - Shasta County Public Health is still seeing available vaccine appointments for this week.
Public Health said the best way to find those open spots is to head to the Shasta Ready website. When people head to the website, they’ll be able to find which spots are still open.
People can also schedule appointments through MyTurn, which is the state’s scheduling system.
Shasta County Public Health is urging people who are eligible to get vaccinated to make an appointment.
“People who are 65 and older or in one of those groups that are being vaccinated now, they're first in line,” Kerri Schuette, the Public Information Officer for the Shasta Health & Human Services Agency said. “They have today and tomorrow to still be first in line.”
On Thursday, the state is expanding vaccine eligibility for people over the age of 50-years-old. Once eligibility opens up to that group, Public Health anticipates that demand for the vaccine will go up.
“We imagine there are quite a few folks who have been patiently waiting their turn and so the demand, we anticipate will go up,” explained Schuette.
On April 15, the state is expanding eligibility for people over 16-years-old.
