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

Jan 8, 2021

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.
