COVID REPORT: Nineteen New Cases Confirmed Today, Joint Information Center Says; Winter Weather Delays Vaccine Shipment


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

Nineteen new cases of COVID-19 were reported today. Two cases recorded previously were removed after they were determined to have been from another jurisdiction, so the total number of Humboldt County residents who have tested positive is now 3,053.

Due to adverse winter weather conditions throughout the United States, many vaccine shipments have been delayed. Some local COVID-19 vaccine clinics have been cancelled as a result. Public Health and other health care providers administering COVID-19 vaccine will reach out to those impacted to reschedule vaccination once the delayed shipments arrive. 

Next week’s allocation of COVID-19 vaccine is expected to include a total of 4,445 doses, —2,300 Moderna and 2,145 Pfizer. The entire Moderna allotment is slated to be administered as second doses at Public Health and provider clinics. From the Pfizer allotment, 1,170 will be used for first doses and 975 will be used for second doses.
