Don’t Call For Vaccine Appointment, Butte County Public Health Says

Butte County Public Health officials are asking people not to contact the health department or local hospitals to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment. 

Officials say misinformation is circulating that the county has an abundance of vaccine, which isn’t the case. 

Officials say some people eligible to receive a vaccination in the first phase have declined.

That is allowing officials to move onto other prioritized populations more quickly. Vaccinations are currently being administered by invitation only.
