COVID REPORT: Pediatric/Family Clinics Being Set Up, With Appointments Required; 45 New Cases Since Wednesday


Press release from the Humboldt County Public Health Division:

Humboldt County Public Health reported today 45 new cases of COVID-19 since Wednesday, bringing to 9,653 the total number of residents who have tested positive for the virus. There were no new hospitalizations or deaths.

Public Health will hold several pediatric and family vaccination clinics in the coming weeks to provide children ages 5 to 11 the recently authorized Pfizer pediatric vaccine. Appointments will be required and can be made on the state’s MyTurn.ca.gov vaccination portal.

Pediatric clinics will offer vaccine to children ages 5 to 11 only. Family clinics give priority to children ages 5 to 11, but parents and guardians of children who are getting vaccinated can receive any dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Due to a sharp increase in demand, walk-ins are not allowed at family and pediatric clinics for children ages 5 to 11 at this time. Boosters are not currently available to the general public at family clinics.

Walk-ins are allowed at most Public Health and many pharmacy vaccination sites, although people without appointments may see significant delays. Appointments are strongly recommended. The best way to ensure you receive a shot is to make an appointment at MyTurn.ca.gov.

Vaccines, including boosters, are widely available at local pharmacies. To check the availability of a specific vaccine, visit the vaccines.gov page, or text a ZIP code to 438829 to locate a nearby pharmacy offering vaccines.

  • 1 person in their 40s

Case rates vary considerably by vaccination status, as illustrated by the graph below, which depicts average weekly case rates since Dec. 2020 in unvaccinated and fully vaccinated residents.
