Mendocino County Joins Humboldt in Getting Vaccines; Other Counties in California’s Northern Reaches Still Await Delivery


On December 14, 2020, North Coast state senator Mike McGuire announced that 327,000 doses of the vaccine had been delivered to California and distributed across the state.

In a county-by-county review of California’s northern reaches, Humboldt County was the first to successfully secure a shipment of COVID-19 vaccinations. Today, we learned from Mendocino County CEO Carmel Angelo that 975 Pfizer COVID-19 vaccinations have arrived there also 

 Lake County has yet to receive the vaccines., Angelo told us.

According to a report from KDRV, Siskiyou County expects to receive the first COVID-19 vaccine doses early next week.

An article published by KRCR indicates that Del Norte County will be getting the first doses of COVID-19 vaccinations by early next week.

According to an article in Santa Rosa’s Press Democrat, even the significantly more populated Sonoma County is supposed to be receiving their COVID-19 vaccine shipment today.

We reached out to Trinity County Public Health leadership, leaving two voicemails but have yet to receive a response. However, Trinity County Public Health’s Facebook page has not announced the delivery of the vaccine.

Meanwhile, in Humboldt County, frontline health care workers are already being vaccinated. On December 15, Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services’ Karen Wilkinson announced that “Today at Mad River Community Hospital, Yolanda Stevens, Occupational Health Supervisor, received the first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, delivered by Tina Wood, Nurse Manager of Critical Care Services.”

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
