At this time, COVID-19 vaccines developed by Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) have received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) approval for use in the United States. Shipments of Pfizer and Moderna vaccine have been received in Tuolumne County and we continue to receive additional shipments of first and second doses of vaccine. Some of the vaccine was redistributed to our neighboring counties as part of the statewide distribution plan, and vaccinations have been administered to individuals according to the State's phased plan. More shipments of vaccine are expected in the coming weeks and months, yet the situation remains fluid. As new details become available regarding COVID-19 vaccines, Tuolumne County Public Health will update the information on this website.
At first, supply will be very limited. Vaccines will be given in phases according to priority groups. Tuolumne County is following federal and state guidelines. As the vaccine becomes available for the general public, information and details on COVID-19 vaccination sites will be shared. We are also coordinating with our healthcare partners on their vaccine administration efforts.
We are now vaccinating anyone age 16 and older (18 and older for Moderna & Janssen) based on vaccine availability. Vaccine is being administered primarily at Closed Points of Dispensing (PODs) by appointment and at pharmacies and clinics as noted below (some clinics and pharmacies may not yet be open to age 16+ until April 15).
Sign up to be notified when a clinic is open near you and register for an appointment at MyTurn.ca.gov or call 833-422-4255.
