Walk-in Vaccinations at Sierra College Clinic

COVID vaccinations are becoming easier and easier to get in Nevada County. However, Director of Health and Human Services, Ryan Gruver says with the increase in vaccine availability, there has also been a drop in participation. To help increase the number of vaccinations, the Sierra College clinic, which opened this week, is now allowing walk-in appointments. Residents can simply show up at the Sierra College clinic and receive either the first or second round of Moderna vaccine.


Director of Nursing, Cynthia Wilson, says the county now has two clinic sites available, and mobile strike teams to provide remote vaccinations.


Gruver hopes opening up appointments at Sierra College will entice more takers.*


The Sierra College Clinic is providing the two-shot Moderna vaccine for adults 18 and older, but Whispering Pines is serving 16 and older with the Pfizer vaccine and plans extend to 12-15 year old children once approved by government agencies.
Wilson says the Reach Team has been busy, visiting both North San Juan and The Little Town of Washington on Tuesday as well as multiple other locations, but no additional mass vaccinations clinics are in the works.
