A total of 3,246 Humboldt County residents have tested positive for COVID-19 after 16 new cases were reported today.
The State of California has allocated Humboldt County a total of 5,010 doses of COVID-19 vaccine for next week. Of those doses, 3,510 are Pfizer, 1,300 are Moderna and 200 are Johnson & Johnson, the first single-dose COVID-19 vaccine authorized for emergency use. Humboldt County Public Health is planning to use 1,430 doses for its large-scale vaccination clinics. The remainder will be distributed to approved local vaccinators.
Vaccination priority now includes those who work in higher education either as educators or support staff. Appointments for vaccination are invitation only, and those invitations are intended only for the recipient. Humboldt County residents who meet state qualifications for vaccination include:
- People age 70 and over
- Health care workers
- Emergency services personnel
- K-12 and early childhood education workers, including educators and support staff
- Licensed child care providers
