Changes to State Vaccination Plan Affect More Than 10,000 Calaveras Residents

San Andreas, CA…Today, Governor Newsom announced that the state is modifying the state vaccination plan to move all people age 65 and older into Phase 1B, Tier 1. This represents more than 10,000 residents within Calaveras County, not including other categories of people that would also be included in Phase 1B.

As of today, Calaveras County Public Health only has a few hundred vaccine doses available within Calaveras County. We are only scheduled to receive 100 more doses next week. While we appreciate the state’s shared interest in vaccinating our most vulnerable populations, the unfortunate reality is that the state has not sent us sufficient supply to vaccinate our community members. We hope that changes soon and promise to continue communicating with our community when we are able to begin scheduling vaccination clinics.

    This sounds like our director dropped the ball. Did not tell those in charge of the number of seniors in Calaveras County.
