Press release from Humboldt County Integrated Information Center:
Today, with 49 new cases reported, 2,220 residents in the province tested positive for COVID-19.
In the news of the vaccine, the country has now shifted to stage 1B, starting with people aged 75 and over.
Public Health Director Michelle Stevens said: “We continue to work through the layers of our plan and are now open to people 75 and older because there is an adequate vaccine for it. As we get the extra vaccine, we open up the extra layers. ”
Humboldt State Health Officer Dr. Ian Hoffman said public health is wrapped up in one phase and is preparing for the next. “We inject into groups,” he said. “We will continue to work with our healthcare partners to send messages on when and where vaccinations are available.”
Additional information on how people 75 and older can be vaccinated will be provided in the coming weeks. Local healthcare providers will provide more information to patients 75 years of age and older.
