Some frontline workers now qualify to receive COVID-19 vaccine
Now includes workers age 50-64 in education, food/agriculture, emergency service
Yuba-Sutter County-sponsored clinics providing COVID-19 vaccines to residents will expand beyond those age 65 and older to include a hybrid of the state's Phase 1b, Tier 1 - allowing doses for frontline workers in education and childcare, food and agriculture, and emergency services who are also 50 to 64 years of age.
Those who qualify will be able to register for vaccines beginning Wednesday (February 17th) at 9 a.m.
Yuba-Sutter Health Officer Dr. Phuong Luu said the change makes sense at this point, as this past week the region began seeing a decline in registrations for those who previously qualified. The next few weeks will continue to focus on vaccinations for those who are at the greatest risk for hospitalization or death from COVID-19.
"By adjusting clinic qualifications to allow those frontline workers who are age 50 and older to get vaccinated, we are continuing to allow science and statistics to guide us," Dr. Luu said. "As we look to expand vaccine qualification in our community, we cannot ignore the fact that people in that age group are at least three times more likely to die in the hospital, than those who are younger. It has always been about protecting lives."
Frontline workers who qualify will need to bring both a letter from their employer or paystub to confirm that they work in one of the frontline sectors AND an official ID (driver's license, passport, etc.) for age verification.

Yuba-Sutter Health Officer prioritizes those 65 and older for Phase 1B vaccines
The expectation of a deadlier, more infectious variant of COVID-19 reaching the Yuba-Sutter area has prompted Bi-County Health Officer Dr. Phuong Luu to continue to prioritize COVID-19 vaccination for those 65 years and older, since nearly 8 out of 10 of those who have died locally due to COVID-19 were in that age range.

What To Do If You Are Sick
People with mild symptoms, who are not sick enough to be hospitalized, should self-isolate at home. These people should:
- Avoid close contact with others
- Stay home for at least ten days from the start of symptoms, AND
- Stay home at least 72 hours after fever is gone, AND
- Stay home until respiratory symptoms have improved (coughing/sneezing)
People with severe symptoms of respiratory illness should call their healthcare provider immediately. Call ahead so that you can be safely evaluated to prevent exposing others. Your healthcare provider will evaluate you and determine the best course of action for your illness, including whether or not you should be tested.
