CHICO, Calif. - Butte County Public Health Director Danette York said laboratory workers, dental, and other oral health clinics will also be next to get Covid-19 vaccines, along with people working in pharmacies.
She said they don't know an exact timeline of when this could happen but they predict it could be within the next couple of weeks.
York said that as more people are getting vaccinated, they are not worried about having a delay in people being able to receive their second vaccination.
"There is not a concern," said York. "I feel very confident that they will continue to do that even as the numbers increase -- that we will not receive any vaccine for the first doses that we know we will have available for the second doses."
She said the state will put out guidelines as recommendations as far as a timeline of who and when people can get vaccinated.
Ultimately, the county decides when it is best to move into the next phase or tier.
She emphasized, when it is your turn to get vaccinated, to not contact the hospitals or Public Health.
She said when certain groups are approved to be vaccinated, they will be notified on how to sign up and get their vaccination scheduled.
She also said in about a month it could be possible for police officers and teachers to receive the vaccine.
According to Butte County Public Health, as of Wednesday, 3,000 vaccines have been administered.
