County Vaccination Pace Slows

Nevada County has gone from not enough vaccine for people that want it to a surplus and a lot of available appointments. County Public Information Officer Taylor Wolfe says that a new clinic at Sierra College Campus has not been fully utilized.


Wolfe says the county does not want to lose the clinic because of lack of use, so she is encouraging anyone that is 18 and up to make an appointment for the Sierra College Grass Valley site on myTurn.ca.gov. Walk-ins without an appointment are also accepted at Sierra College facility.
Appointments for the Pfizer vaccine are also available, and it has now been approved for a younger population.


For residents that have been waiting for the single dose Johnson and Johnson, it is available but you have to look for it on the registration site.


Wolfe says that vaccination rates have also stalled in the over 65 population with less than 1% more getting vaccinated in the last week.
