SHINGLETOWN, Calif. - People over 75-years-old in Shasta County can start getting their Covid-19 vaccine.
The Shingletown Medical Center expected to vaccinate at least 100 people on Tuesday.
The Shingletown Medical Center repurposed its fitness center into a vaccination clinic. Workout equipment pushed aside to make room for chairs for patients to wait and receive the vaccine.
Katie Wahler, the Medical Director at the Shingletown Medical Center, tells Action News Now a lot of people want to get vaccinated.
“People are very excited, they're very enthusiastic. They want this vaccine and we are empathetic to that,” said Wahler.
“We want to give this vaccine, that's kind of our main objective, along with not wasting any doses.”
People over 75-years-old who want to get vaccinated must make an appointment. The medical center says it has already gotten more than 600 calls about the vaccine.
The clinic says it will reach out to you to confirm and schedule a time, and asks for people not to keep calling back.
