MT. SHASTA, Calif. — Public health officials in Siskiyou County are preparing for another COVID-19 vaccination clinic, this time in Mt. Shasta. The clinic will be by appointment only.
Siskiyou County Public Health had its first vaccination clinic in January at the fairgrounds in Yreka, followed by a second dose clinic on February 12. The first clinic did not require appointments, and saw a major influx of people seeking to receive a vaccine, many of whom had to be turned away after 1,146 available doses were accounted for.
This clinic will be open to Phase 1a (Tiers 1-3) and Phase 1b (Tier 1). Under California's plan, this includes healthcare workers, people 65 and older, education and childcare workers, food and agricultural workers, and emergency services.
To get an appointment, people must live or work in Siskiyou County, and must not have a history of severe allergic reactions to any of the components in the Pfizer vaccine, such as polysorbate or Polyethylene glycol.
This clinic will be held on Thursday, March 4 at the Mt. Shasta Armory, 618 Everitt Memorial Highway. It will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Appointments can be made on the Siskiyou County Public Health page. The required paperwork can be downloaded and should be completed before the clinic. If you are unable to schedule an appointment online, call (530) 841-2134.
