Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vaccine

 
COVID-19 Vaccine Schedule

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. For more information visit - www.suttercounty.org/Vaccine or www.yuba.org/vaccines.

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.
