COVID REPORT: Six New Cases Confirmed Today; Local Resident in Their 40s Hospitalized


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

A total of 4,514 Humboldt County residents have tested positive for COVID-19 after six new cases were reported today. One resident in their 40s was hospitalized with the virus. 

Humboldt County Public Health and other approved local vaccinators have administered a total of 128,430 doses of COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccination data on the Humboldt County Data Dashboard has been updated with the latest information from the California Immunization Registry (CAIR). Some highlights include:

  • Nearly 1 in 5, or 19.4%, of residents in the 12 to 15 age group — the group that most recently became eligible — are fully vaccinated. That’s 8 percentage points more than last week and the largest increase of any age group.
  • 45.9% of the county’s total population, which is estimated at 135,940 residents, is fully vaccinated. 52.4% of the eligible population age 12 and older are fully vaccinated. 
  • 52.9% of the county’s total population and 60.5% of the eligible population have received at least one dose of vaccine, meaning they have some protection against the virus.

Data provided by the California Department of Public Health, which includes additional information not reflected in the CAIR database, reports that 64.1% of Humboldt County’s eligible population has received at least one dose of vaccine.

Thousands of local residents have received the COVID-19 vaccine at Public Health mass vaccination clinics held at the College of the Redwoods (CR). The college is hosting its final clinic today, and Public Health Director Michele Stephens expressed her gratitude to the college and campus staff for the successful partnership.

“Planning and conducting mass vaccination clinics for our entire county required a communitywide response, and we are forever grateful to CR and our partners for all their support and efforts in getting COVID-19 vaccine to thousands of people,” Director Stephens said. “We are especially grateful to College of the Redwoods for their support as Public Health’s mass vaccination site.”

CR President Keith Flamer added that he was honored the college was asked to serve as a vaccination clinic site. “The Board of Trustees, faculty and staff of College of the Redwoods have been inspired by the commitment of Humboldt County Public Health in the effort to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to vaccinate Humboldt County residents,” he said. “I am extremely glad that CR was able to contribute to the herculean effort it's taken to safeguard the community. CR stands ready to do all it can to support the work of Public Health.”

Public Health will continue to hold vaccination clinics at various locations throughout the county and will be in Redcrest, Bridgeville, Eureka and Petrolia over the next week. All Public Health clinics are open to walk-ins. Those who would like to make an appointment in advance may do so at MyTurn.ca.gov. See the schedule of Public Health’s clinics below.
