COVID-19 Vaccine Information

COVID-19 vaccination is one of the most important tools to end the COVID-19 pandemic. The State is prioritizing vaccines for equitable distribution to everyone in California who wants it. We expect to have enough supplies to vaccinate most Californians in all 58 counties by summer 2021.

California’s COVID-19 Vaccine Plan:

After healthcare workers and long-term care residents,  the next to be vaccinated will be individuals who have higher risk for severe disease or death (due to age or other factors), who are unable to work at home, who live or work in geographic areas that have been highly impacted, or who are most likely to spread disease to other workers or to the public. For the latest facts, please visit the California COVID-19 Vaccines Webpage.

Glenn County's COVID-19 Vaccine Plan:

We are now accepting appointments for vaccine from the following groups:

  • 75 years and older
  • 65-74 years with underlying medical conditions/ disabilities that place them at high risk for severe COVID-19 illness and death

Please call Public Health Monday through Friday 8AM to 5PM at (530)934-6588 for an appointment if you meet the criteria for vaccination above.

For full details, see PDF attachment below labeled Glenn County COVID-19 Vaccination Plan.

For more information on underlying or chronic medical conditions that put people at increased risk for complications from COVID, see the fact sheets and videos from CDPH.

 

V-safe After Vaccination Health Checker

V-safe is a smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins after you receive a COVID-19 vaccination. Through v-safe, you can quickly tell CDC if you have any side effects after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Depending on your answers, someone from CDC may call to check on you and get more information. And v-safe will remind you to get your second COVID-19 vaccine dose if you need one.

Your participation in CDC’s v–safe makes a difference — it helps keep COVID-19 vaccines safe.
