COVID REPORT: Seven New Cases Confirmed Today, Joint Information Center Says; A Fifth of the County Fully Vaccinated


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

Humboldt County Public Health and other approved local vaccinators have administered 66,648 doses of COVID-19 vaccine, an increase of 9,322 doses since last week’s report.  

Vaccination data has been updated on the Humboldt County Data Dashboard. Some highlights include:

  • 26,085 local residents are fully vaccinated, which represents 19.2% of the county’s total estimated population and about 23.2% of county residents who are 16 and over and currently qualify for vaccination.
  • Nearly 1 in 3 or 31.6% of the county’s total population has received at least one dose of vaccine, meaning they have some protection against the virus. 
  • Of those most susceptible to severe illness — people age 75 and over — 62.5% are fully vaccinated and 78.2% have received at least one dose.
