Second doses of COVID-19 vaccines to begin this month - Residents age 65 and older will be notified to schedule their appointments

02.08.2021

CHICO, Calif., Feb. 8, 2021 – For the first time, the community COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Meriam Park in Chico will administer second doses of the vaccine. This will start with Butte County residents age 65 and older who received their first dose at the clinic.

The clinic will open Feb. 19 for this purpose and continue Feb. 22-25. Residents in this first tier will be notified to schedule their appointment on a first-come, first-served basis, by Butte County staff. An appointment is required to receive vaccination, and the county encourages all vaccine recipients to bring their COVID-19 vaccination card with them to receive their second dose.

First dose vaccination clinics have been paused until further notice. Enloe and Butte County are planning the next phase of vaccine rollout and look forward to continuing first doses as the State allocates more vaccine to Butte County.

“Giving second doses is an important milestone on our road to fully vaccinating our community,” said Judy Cline, Enloe’s Director of Emergency Department, Prompt Care and Trauma Services. “We appreciate everyone’s patience along the way and are grateful to everyone who has stepped up to support this critical effort.”

Butte County ranks seventh out of 58 counties in California for vaccine doses administered per 100,000 people, according to data compiled by the Los Angeles Times. This ranking can change on a daily basis, but the county has consistently been in the top 10.
