Due to word getting out “go to Sierra County they’ll vaccinate you” we will be requiring an ID with a Sierra County address before receiving a vaccine from our very limited number of doses provided to Sierra County Public Health. This is the case at both closed POD (Points of Dispensing) locations in Downieville and Loyalton moving forward.
The only exception would be somebody who works in county, and has high exposure at their work, even though they live out of county.
- Many people will be able to get vaccinated at their Health Care Provider or a chain pharmacy before Sierra County will be able to schedule you for an appointment. This is simply due to the small amounts of vaccine currently allocated to Sierra County.
- If you have been put on the Sierra County Public Health waiting list to be contacted, it may take several months to be contacted and scheduled. Calling and emailing will not speed up the process.
- Employers are asked to poll their employees and provide the attached completed sheet to Sierra County Public Healthcovid19@sierracounty.ca.gov
The COVID Vaccine section of the County website is being up-dated as new information and forms are available:http://sierracounty.ca.gov/616/About-Vaccine-for-COVID-19
