Logging Industry Now Eligible to Receive COVID-19 Vaccine, Say Mendocino County Public Health

The following press release was issued by the County of Mendocino:

Dr. Andrew Coren, Mendocino County Public Health Officer announced today that all  logging industry personnel are now included in the current Agricultural Workers vaccination  tier, making them immediately eligible for vaccination as vaccine events become available. 

“We are hoping that all the farmers, ranchers and food producers of Mendocino County will  take advantage of the upcoming vaccine events,” notes Darcie Antle, Mendocino County  Vaccine Coordinator. 

Additionally, a posting on Mendocino County’s Facebook page mistakenly included  “Lodging” personnel as part of the current vaccination group.  

“We would like to clarify that this group was erroneously included with the individuals  currently eligible for vaccination,” says Dr. Coren. 

“If there are lodging personnel who are directly involved in the preparation of food and/or  food services, those persons are eligible for vaccinations now,” he continues. 

Dates and times for vaccination events are being posted as soon as they are scheduled on  the county’s website. In the coming week, two “First-Dose” clinics will be held for Phase 1A,  Tiers 1 and 2 of Phase 1B, which includes Agricultural, Logging Industry Workers and  those over 65 years of age. 

The vaccination events are scheduled for Monday and Wednesday, March 1st and March  3rd. Both vaccine events are located at the Redwood Empire Fairgrounds in Ukiah. 

To sign up for either of these events, please visit or log on at the County’s vaccine portal or vaccinations/vaccination-clinics . Appointments may also be made by calling the Covid-19  Call Center at (707) 472-2663 or (707) 472-2759.
