TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. – Tehama County Public Health is making progress, getting its share of vaccine doses to those most vulnerable.

Tehama County Public Health says it's received more than 8000 calls from the community about the covid-19 vaccines. The influx of calls actually broke down the department’s phone system.

Since then, Public Health’s phones are back up and running. Public Health leaders say they’re trying to get people scheduled as quickly as possible. Starting Monday, Tehama County Public Health began scheduling appointments for people 65-years-old and up.

Public health has administered more than 2200 doses of the Covid-19 vaccines.

“We had a lot of people that are wanting to get the Covid vaccine taken care of,” said Michelle Schmidt, the supervising public health nurse.

“We are in the process of all the phone calls, all the emails, and all the scheduling forms that we have received thus far. We are asking for everyone's patience as we get through that.”

Tehama County Public Health says people can schedule vaccination appointments online through the public health website. People can also call (530)-527-6824.
