Yuba and Sutter County are beginning to move forward into Phase 1B of COVID Vaccine distribution – all residents of Yuba County and Sutter County who are 65 years of age and older are now eligible to schedule an appointment to receive the vaccine.
Please use the link below to schedule an appointment at a County sponsored clinic or receive information on providers in our area who are offering the vaccine. Please note that appointments are extremely limited and reliant on vaccines available in the Yuba-Sutter area.
This link is updated each Wednesday by 9:00AM with additional information on available clinics.
For those who do not have an email or are not familiar with online registration systems, we are working on an alternative registration process that will be available next week.
Dear Sutter County and Yuba County residents,
Late last week, the State provided clear guidance that those 65 years and older should be offered COVID-19 vaccine before those in frontline sectors. The risk of hospitalization and death for those 65 years and older is at least 5 times higher for hospitalization and 90 times higher for death when compared to those age 18-29 years old.
The number of vaccines allocated from the State is highly variable, ranging from 200-1400 doses per week. Therefore, we will not be able to confirm what will be physically available in Yuba-Sutter until every Tuesday. By 9 a.m. every Wednesday, we will post the registration links for that week's vaccination clinics for those 65 and older based on the physically available vaccine doses in Yuba-Sutter.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we manage this ever-evolving situation.
UPDATE: Phase 1B Tier 1 vaccinations now include residents 65 years old and older!
We are continuing Phase 1A of COVID-19 vaccinations currently and it will take a couple more weeks to allow for adequate vaccine supply to progress to Phase 1B, Tier 1. Scheduling for Phase 1B Tier 1 vaccinations will start Monday, January 25, 2021 . By January 20th we will begin posting the locations on the County and Public Health websites where individuals eligible for Phase 1B, Tier 1 can get vaccinated.
Due to recent changes to Federal and State guidance, residents 65 years old and older can be vaccinated sooner than previously scheduled. This is because this age group poses a higher risk of hospitalization and death. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that those 65-74 years old are 5 times more likely to be hospitalized and 90 times more likely to die from COVID-19 when compared to those 18-29 years old.
There are approximately 25,000 Yuba-Sutter residents who are 65 years old and older and only around 1,000 doses per week are currently being sent to us by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). Yuba and Sutter counties are waiting to receive enough doses to begin the mass vaccination of this large age group. By January 25th, the Yuba/Sutter region will have enough vaccines to start the scheduling of mass vaccination for the Phase 1B Tier 1 group – please be patient with us as we deal with continued limited supply.

Please note that Sutter County and Yuba County Public Health are still working on vaccinating tier 1 of phase 1A (direct health care providers). For those belonging to large healthcare organizations such as Adventist, Sutter Medical Foundation, FQHCs, SNFs, assisted living facilities, please reach out to your respective organization for information on when you can receive the vaccine. For direct health care providers/individuals in tier 1 and 2 who do not belong to one of the large healthcare organizations, Public Health will be notifying providers directly very soon regarding opportunities for vaccination through various outpatient clinics and mass vaccination clinics. Following the guidance of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the CDC, the vaccine is not yet available for those outside of Phase 1A.

The COVID-19 vaccine will be given in several phases throughout the next couple of months. We are currently in Phase 1a which is available to direct healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities (i.e. skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, group homes). Please click on the link above for additional information.

For the Public:
The California Department of Public Health has convened a Drafting Guidelines Workgroup which is leveraging national prioritization frameworks and reviewing data regarding occupational exposure and COVID risk to prioritize sectors across phases and tiered population groups. Counties will follow these guidelines in administering vaccine.
However, given the number of people falling into the various tiers in a specific county, the uptake of those in the priority group in getting vaccinated, and the logistics and timeline for use of the vaccine so that no doses go to waste, counties may be in different tiers in administering vaccine to their population.
