Butte County is considering expanding COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to all residents aged 16 and older.

 

Public Health Director Danette York told the county Board of Supervisors Tuesday that because of declining demand, it’s taking considerable effort to fill vaccination clinics.

“A couple things that we’ve seen is as we decrease in age for eligibility, we also decrease in the percentage of uptake,” York said. 

 

Butte County expanded vaccine eligibility Friday to people 50 years and older who live or work in the county.
