COVID REPORT: Seventeen (17) New Cases Confirmed Today; Humboldt is Just About Half Vaxxed


From the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

Seventeen new cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in Humboldt County today. The total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus is 4,405 after two previously reported cases were determined to be false positives and removed from the count. 

The vaccine section of the Data Dashboard has been updated with the latest information from the California Immunization Registry (CAIR), which reports that 121,713 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in the county, and 48.6% of residents ages 12 and up who are currently eligible for vaccination have been fully vaccinated.

A total of 69,414 Humboldt County residents have received at least one dose. This number represents 51.1% of the county’s total population and 58.3% of eligible residents.

Vaccination data from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), which includes additional information about doses administered through the federal government’s various vaccination programs, reports that 61.9% of Humboldt County’s eligible population has received at least one dose of vaccine. This number is nearly 4% higher than the report from the CAIR database.

Vaccination clinics are scheduled through Sunday in Eureka. Walk-ins are welcome at all Public Health clinics, or people may schedule in advance through MyTurn.ca.gov.

Public Health has partnered with the True North Organizing Network for Sunday’s clinic, and Spanish-speaking staff will be on hand to assist community members as they go through the vaccination process. See below for this week’s schedule and a list of vaccines offered. 

Eureka – Thursday, June 10 – 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.      College of the Redwoods Gym (7351 Tompkins Hill Road)      Pfizer/Johnson & Johnson 

Eureka – Sunday, June 13 – 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.      College of the Redwoods Gym (7351 Tompkins Hill Road)      Pfizer/Johnson & Johnson

The one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine is authorized for people 18 and older. The Pfizer vaccine is authorized for people age 12 and older. A parent or guardian must accompany minor children to the clinic. Minor consent forms are available online in English or Spanish and may be printed and filled out for each minor child before coming to the clinic.
