Community COVID-19 vaccination clinic begins Friday - Butte County residents ages 75 and older

01.21.2021

CHICO, Calif., Jan. 21, 2021 – A community COVID-19 vaccination clinic is coming to Chico starting this week. Enloe Medical Center is administering vaccines free of charge to eligible Butte County residents.

To register to be notified when you are eligible to receive your first vaccine, individuals are directed to fill out the Butte County Public Health COVID-19 Vaccine Notification Form. Please note, this registration process does not book a vaccination appointment. The first vaccinations at the clinic will be given Friday.

Officials hope to immunize 400 people on Friday and 800 people each day on future clinic dates, which are expected to continue as necessary, said Judy Cline, Enloe’s Director of the Emergency department, Prompt Care, and Trauma Services. Provided by BCPH, vaccines will be given to Butte County adults ages 75 and older. Later, vaccines will become available to younger populations in accordance with California’s vaccination phases and tiers guidelines.

“Butte County residents have been waiting patiently to have access to the vaccine to protect themselves and their loved ones from this devastating disease,” Cline said. “We’re so happy to start immunizing our community and continue supporting every effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.”

Cline encourages Butte County residents who are interested in receiving the vaccine to fill out the COVID-19 Vaccine Notification Form at www.buttecounty.net/ph/COVID19/vaccine. “Once officials confirm someone’s eligibility and slots become available, community members will get an email notification,” she said. “This approach will help us vaccinate the most vulnerable populations first.”

Starting today, communications for vaccine scheduling will be sent through email. When it comes time to receive vaccines, community members are asked to arrive no more than 5 minutes early to their appointment, wear a mask, bring a valid photo ID and the required paperwork, and wear clothing that allows immunization to the upper arm.
