As of Tuesday morning, less than half of eligible Nevada County residents 12 years and up have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Public Information Officer Taylor Wolfe says the number is hovering around 40 percent. However, she also says that the medical professionals, specifically Public Health staff, have done a tremendous job getting the vaccine out. Typically, Public Health administers less than 2000 vaccines to fight off a variety of illnesses. They have administered over 10 times that many COVID doses.
Wolfe says access to all three types of vaccines is getting easier and easier. She says pop-up clinics are listed in myTurn.ca.gov. The next one is this afternoon in Smartsville.
Another clinic is scheduled for the Saturday after Memorial Day, June 5th, at the Western Sierra Medical Clinic from 9am-2pm. And a third clinic in Penn Valley on June 8th.
And if getting to clinic is an issue, you can now schedule for an in-home vaccination or arrange for free door-to-door transportation to a clinic.
All information is available through myTurn.ca.gov or the toll free number 1-833-422-4225.
