COVID-19 Vaccine
Question: 
How many doses of vaccine have been received in Trinity County? How many doses have been administered? When will there be doses available for those who have been excluded for health reasons, from the mass vaccinations?
Answer: 

Trinity County has received a total of 1,400 doses to date. We have given 240 of those to first responders, and other front line workers in Phase 1A tier one and some in tier two, including essential staff that will assist with Point of Distribution Site (PODS).  The hospital has been provided 300 doses to begin to vaccinate their high risk clients through their clinics. The remaining 860 doses will be distributed within the next 2 weeks as follows: 3 Mass vaccination PODS - February 5th, 6th, and 11th; vaccination of non-nursing congregate assisted living facilities for those over 65 years of age and older, such as Escaton; second doses for those first responders previously vaccinated. Beyond February 11, 2021 the PHB will hold weekly mass vaccination PODS to vaccinate those 65 years of age and older as well as those included in phase 1A tiers 1-3 and then phase 1B and 1C respectively with our weekly allocation of covid-19 vaccine. Each of these weekly PODS will also include vaccination for those seeking their second dose. We are also assisting our clinic providers to ensure they are able to provide vaccine as more doses become available.
