COVID REPORT: Ten New Cases Confirmed Today; Thousands of Pfizer and Moderna Doses Available This Week


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

There are currently thousands of vaccine doses available at clinics this week with walk-in hours every day starting Wednesday.  

Clinics are held at the Arcata Community Center, located at 321 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Pkwy., with walk-in hours from 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. These availabilities are for those seeking their first or second dose.  

Walk-ins are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, although booking an appointment is the best way to ensure a vaccine is available when you want it. Spanish and English speakers are available at every clinic. 

Appointments for Moderna and Pfizer clinics this week can be made at MyTurn.ca.gov. When prompted to “Enter your address or ZIP code,” county residents should enter only “Humboldt County” on the “Let’s Find an Appointment” page of the My Turn website, the third page of the appointment scheduler. This means residents will input “Humboldt County” in two different places. 

All county residents age 16 and older can register, but 16- and 17-year-olds should sign up only for the Pfizer vaccine. Minors must have proof of age and be accompanied by a parent or guardian.  

The following clinics and vaccines are available by appointment and for walk-ins: 

  • Wednesday — Moderna (18 and older)
  • Thursday — Pfizer (16 and older)
  • Friday — Moderna (18 and older)
  • Saturday — Pfizer (16 and older)
  • Sunday — Moderna and Pfizer (16 and older)
