BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. – The State has allocated nearly 10,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to Butte County, which includes approximately 3,000 doses from Pfizer and 7,000 doses from Moderna, Butte County Public Health (BCPH) announced Friday.

Of these doses, BCPH said it has allocated almost 5,000 to Enloe Medical Center, with an anticipated delivery date later in the week of Dec. 14.

Public Health said these early doses of both vaccines will be prioritized to healthcare workers who are most at risk of exposure to COVID-19. The vaccine is not available to other healthcare workers or the general public at this time.

“We are scheduled to receive a limited supply of the COVID-19 vaccine and are prioritizing this resource for front-line healthcare workers at highest risk for exposure to the virus,” said Mike Wiltermood, Enloe Medical Center’s president and CEO. “We have worked diligently on a plan for vaccine distribution, utilizing guidance from California Department of Public Health, CDC recommendations, as well as internal knowledge of our current operational needs. Vaccinating front-line workers will help ensure our ability to continue providing care to our community during this challenging time.”

This is the first vaccine allocation for Phase 1 – additional doses will be allocated as:

  • Supply increases
  • Additional local healthcare providers are identified and invited by BCPH to register with the State as an approved COVID-19 vaccine provider
  • New Phases of distribution are activated

BCPH anticipates that additional acute care hospitals in Butte County will complete the registration process in time to receive allocations for the next order. Orders will be placed weekly, every Thursday.

Healthcare providers who have not been contacted directly by BCPH to register with CDPH as a vaccine provider are not currently identified to receive the vaccine in the first phase of distribution. These providers should wait to be contacted by BCPH.
