Even with the Governor opening the Vax to Win Program incentivizing people to get vaccinated, the vaccination rate in Nevada County has only slightly improved since last week; and it is still lagging behind the rest of the state. As of June 1st almost 86 thousand doses had been administered in the county. County Public Information Officer Taylor Wolfe says the actual number of fully vaccinated eligible residents had increased slightly from the week before.
The better news is that there is plenty of vaccine available through the county and multiple partners.
Walk-ins continue to be accepted at the Sierra College Clinic Tuesday through Saturdays and pop-up clinics will be taking place in two areas. The first is this Saturday.
The second clinic is at the fire station in Penn Valley on Tuesday from 4 to 6pm. It will be a Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson clinic. Walk-ins are welcome at both clinics but appointments are also available on myTurn.ca.gov. In-home vaccinations and transportation to clinics are also available through myTurn.
Wolfe says the intent is to make vaccines accessible to anyone that wants one. Slightly over 50% of the California’s eligible population have been fully vaccinated.
