Mendocino County Officially Receiving Its First Shipment of COVID-19 Vaccines Today

Mendocino County’s 3rd District Supervisor John Haschak has confirmed, “975 vaccines are to be delivered today in Mendocino County. Vaccines will be given according to state vaccine tiers.”

Supervisor Haschak’s announcement comes hours after North Coast State Senator Mike McGuire announced on his Twitter that “the first 327,000 doses of the Covid vaccine arrived late last night in California via cargo transport planes.”

Mendocino County with about 87,000 people got exactly the same number of vaccines as Humboldt county with about 139,000 people.
