General Vaccine Update! 1/29/2021

Local healthcare organizations and Humboldt County Public Health are currently distributing the limited quantities of COVID-19 vaccine available to the health care workforce, according the guidelines from the California Department of Public Health. For more information on that process, please visit https://humboldtgov.org/2872/Vaccine-Info.

 

We are now requesting information from the early education and childcare organizations to help us plan for the next phase of vaccine distribution. To support vaccination for your employees, we are requesting that one leadership representative within each organization (chief, executive director, principal, etc.) complete the Humboldt Community Workforce Survey using the link below.

 

The point of contact established in this survey will be the person who will be sent vaccination clinic invitations to distribute to their entire staff when a clinic opportunity arises. Clinic invitations will be sent through email. Vaccination clinic invitations are likely to be sent to this group in mid to late February, depending on the supply of doses provided by the state and the demand for vaccine in these sectors. For more details, please go to https://humboldtgov.org/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=3663.

 

Please try to limit your survey responses to one per agency. If you have already completed the survey, there is no need to re-submit your response.

Please complete the Community Workforce survey here by Monday, Feb 1.: https://forms.gle/PzSXfKcxKwtfp5jd9.

If you are unable to complete the form online, you may request the survey as a Word document by emailing covidinfo@co.humboldt.ca.us. If you have questions about the survey, you can contact 707-441-5000 or email covidinfo@co.humboldt.ca.us.

 

Vaccination for Child Care Providers Update!

If you are a Family Child Care Home, this includes your assistants and any adults in your home who are on your license, even if they don't provide care. If you are license exempt (family member, neighbor, or friend who did a Trustline background check) this also includes you! Please contact the Joint Information Center with any questions at 707-441-5000 or to covidinfo@co.humboldt.ca.us

"Humboldt County Public Health continues to use every dose of the COVID-19 vaccine it is allocated on a weekly basis. Due to limited vaccine supply, Public Health has canceled its large-scale vaccination clinics for the week and reassigned available resources to support other providers’ clinics."

By the end of this week, all approved local vaccinators, including Public Health, are expected to receive a total of 3,775 doses. Those will be administered to health care workers, first responders, people age 75 and over as well as in-person educators and support staff, based on priorities outlined by the California Department of Public Health.  2.1.2021

 To help us prepare to schedule vaccination clinics for childcare providers, childcare organization/businesses are invited to complete the Humboldt Community Workforce Survey using the link below. This survey should be filled out by one person per agency, whoever is best positioned to collect and share information for all employees (usually the director).

https://forms.gle/PzSXfKcxKwtfp5jd9

When we are ready to schedule clinics for childcare providers, the county will use the contact information you provide in the survey to send registration links by email. To make sure you receive your invitation and are able to register, please provide an accurate email address in the survey. Please also be planning to check your email frequently once your sector is opened for vaccination.

At this time, the county is unable to provide an accurate estimate of when the vaccine will be available to childcare workers, as much will depend on our vaccine allocation from the State, which is subject to change. To stay informed on the latest news related to COVID-19 and vaccine distribution, please subscribe to news alerts on our website: https://humboldtgov.org/2703/Related-News.

To learn more about vaccination distribution in Humboldt County, please go to: https://humboldtgov.org/2872/Vaccine-Info

If you have any questions about the survey or COVID-19 vaccine distribution, please contact 707-441-5000 or email covidinfo@co.humboldt.ca.us.

Thank you for participating in this process."

 

All Humboldt County residents who want to receive the COVID-19 vaccine can now submit their contact information through an online interest form to be notified when doses are available for their tier.

The form takes about two minutes to complete and asks for basic information like name, email, ZIP code and willingness or ability to travel to a clinic in another part of the county. Nearly 3,000 residents have filled out the form since the soft launch on Friday.

Currently in Humboldt County, vaccine is available by appointment only due to limited supply, and priority is given to frontline health care workers and people age 75 and over as part of Phase 1A. Vaccination appointments, while still limited, will be expanded to some in Phase 1B Tier 1 in the coming days and weeks.

Appointments will be made by priority group, as laid out by the California Department of Public Health. Completing the interest form will allow Humboldt County Public Health to contact residents directly when a clinic is scheduled for their priority group. Filling out the form does not place a resident ahead of someone in a higher priority group.

"Wear A Mask!

The “Wear a Mask” campaign was developed by a workgroup of the COVID Economic Resilience Consortium (CERC).

The campaign is designed to encourage the consistent use of masks to better protect the health of the community and to slow the spread of the Coronavirus. We know that being ‘Pro-Mask” is being “Pro-Business.” Stopping the spread of the virus is the best way to get to the reopening of our local businesses and organizations. It’s up to each of us to join the fight!

We have developed materials to share.  Please fee free to use in your social media, print and distribute, or however you want to help the message of “wear a mask!”

And don’t forget! Use our hashtags, #KeepHumboldtHealthy #WearAMask"
