REDDING, Calif. – With the COVID-19 vaccine here in California, Shasta County Public Health expects it to be delivered on December 15 or December 16.

Mercy Medical Center will serve as both the distribution and storage site.

Once Mercy gets the vaccine then other health care facilities can pick up their allotted doses. Shasta County Public Health says it's up to each healthcare facility to decide how to administer the vaccine to staff.

The county is getting 2,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

People tell Action News Now, they’re ready for a vaccine.

“Hopefully it will keep my immune better,” said Stephen Withnell of Redding.

But healthcare workers and first responders would be the first group of people to get the vaccine.

“We're going to continue to work down that tier system until all of the vaccines in each are used,” said Kerri Schuette with the Shasta Health & Human Services Agency.

“At some point, hopefully in the not-too-distant future, we'll have availability for the general public to also get vaccinated.

Shasta County is also expecting to receive the Moderna vaccine sometime this month.
