Contraindications to a second dose of COVID-19 vaccine would be an allergic reaction to the first dose that included hives or shortness of breath.
This is not a vaccine so you are able to get the COVID-19 immunization.
Excellent question, as we transition to the public/private partnership with the Third Party Administrator to expand access to vaccination in Trinity County and ensure those at greatest risk are vaccinated, we will be providing second doses to all those that have received first doses for our PHB PODS.

- Sickle cell disease ... Read more
For the March 5th vaccination PODS and beyond we will be utilizing the MyTurn statewide scheduling system https://myturn.ca.gov/ We are currently being on-boarded to this system and will have it on our website around March 1st or 2nd.
