¡Nos alegra ver que nuestra comunidad está dando la bienvenida a la llegada de la vacuna COVID-19 con los brazos abiertos y las mangas arremangadas! Entendemos que muchos de ustedes están ansiosos por recibir la vacuna, pero se está implementando de acuerdo con un sistema de niveles:
El condado está distribuyendo vacunas de acuerdo con las regulaciones y pautas vigentes. MCC no tiene una lista de espera para aquellos interesados en recibir la vacuna, ni tenemos un suministro de vacunas a la mano.
Hoy estamos vacunando a nuestros maestros locales. Estas son las 300 vacunas mencionadas en las ediciones de esta semana de The Mendocino Beacon y Fort Bragg Advocate-News, y todas se utilizarán en este evento. Este es un gran paso para que nuestros niños puedan regresar al aprendizaje en persona más adelante este año.
Nos pondremos en contacto con nuestros pacientes de 75 años en adelante cuando tengamos un suministro de vacuna para comenzar a dársela a estos pacientes. Si no es un paciente de MCC, comuníquese con su proveedor de atención médica y pregúntele si participa en el programa de vacunas. Si es así, su proveedor de atención médica le notificará cuando esté listo para vacunarlo. De lo contrario, comuníquese con Salud Pública del Condado de Mendocino al 707-472-2663 para informarles que está interesado en recibir la vacuna cuando esté disponible.
Continuamos con nuestras pruebas de vigilancia gratuitas los miércoles de 9 am a 1 pm, y los jueves de 1 pm a 5 pm. Llámanos al 707 964 1251 para hacer una cita.
Pedimos su paciencia y comprensión mientras continúa el despliegue de la vacuna.
We are glad to see that our community is welcoming the arrival of the COVID-19 vaccine with open arms and sleeves rolled up! We understand that many of you are anxious to receive the vaccine, but it is being rolled out according to a tier system:
The County is distributing vaccines according to the regulations and guidelines currently in place. MCC does not have a waiting list for those interested in receiving the vaccine, nor do we have a supply of vaccine on hand.
We are vaccinating our local teachers today. These are the 300 vaccines referred to in this week’s editions of The Mendocino Beacon and the Fort Bragg Advocate-News, and they will all be used at this event. This is a big step toward our children being able to return to in person learning later this year.
We will be contacting our patients aged 75 and up when we have a supply of vaccine to start giving it to these patients. If you are not an MCC patient, contact your healthcare provider and ask if they are participating in the vaccine program. If they are, your healthcare provider will notify you when they are ready to vaccinate you. If not, contact Mendocino County Public Health at 707-472-2663 to let them know you are interested in receiving the vaccine when it is available.
We are continuing our free, drive-through surveillance testing on Wednesdays from 9 am to 1 pm, and Thursdays from 1 pm to 5 pm. Give us a call at 707 964 1251 to make an appointment.
We ask for your patience and understanding as the vaccine roll out continues.
Here at MCC, we are proud to serve our community in so many ways, from medical and dental services to outreach services and specialty services, like chiropractic and acupuncture. Our focus over the past 10 months has been providing COVID-19 testing to people with symptoms and without, and we will continue to do so as long as it is needed in our community.
But testing comes at a cost of nearly $100 per test, at a time when we are being paid about half our normal rate for telephone and telehealth visits, the way we must see most of our patients to keep everyone healthy and safe.
We are hoping to raise $100,000 to cover the cost of just 1,000 of these vital tests. Here’s how you can help us meet this goal.
1. Donate here to our campaign to keep our testing program going as long as it’s needed in our community:
You’ll receive a box of made in Mendocino goodies, including crab, so you can cook crab cakes at our online Crab, Wine & Beer Days. Watch award-winning chefs create crab cake masterpieces before your very eyes! Boxes can be shipped to you or picked up at the Clinic. Pair your crab cakes with Mendocino wines for an unforgettable afternoon.

Thank you for supporting MCC through these challenging times. Together we’re stronger!
Local trainers Holly and Dakotah are putting the Zoom in Zumba! Just in time for those New Year’s resolutions, they are offering classes 6 days a week.
A schedule of classes is listed below, and they usually send a recording of classes as well, so you can dance on your own schedule. If you would like to preview a class for free, contact Dakotah at email@example.com and she will send you a link.
Note that some of our rural local internet connections do not always sync up to the music and moves, so you may want to try a class first to make sure there are no technical issues before you commit and pay.
The fee is $25-$50 a month. This is a sliding scale fee so students can pay whatever they feel comfortable with. Dakotah and Holly accept PayPal, Venmo, CashApp, Zelle or check by mail.
Schedule of Zumba+ Classes:
Monday (Holly) 12:00pm-Zumba
Tuesday (Dakotah) 9:30am-weights 10:00am-Zumba
Wednesday (Holly) 12:00pm-Zumba
Thursday (Dakotah) 9:30am-weights 10:00am-Zumba
Friday (Dakotah) 9:30am-strength training 10:00am-Zumba
Looking for something fun to do? We’ve got you covered! Join us for our very first virtual Crab, Wine & Beer Days on Saturday, January 30!
At this year’s event, award-winning chefs will create their delicious crab cakes right before your eyes via the magic of Zoom. You can cook along with them, using your own box of Made in Mendocino goodies shipped to your door before the event, or watch the recording later for inspiration and tips.
We are hoping to raise $100,000 at this year’s event to help us continue to provide COVID-19 testing to our community. Each test can cost up to $100 with shipping and processing, so our goal is to fund 1,000 tests.
We will be accepting reservations until January 15 to allow us enough time for shipping your box of Made in Mendocino delicacies. The box should arrive around January 25 so you can cook along…
Mendocino County wines will be available to order and ship mid-January so you can sip along…
Most of us are glad to say goodbye to 2020 and hello to 2021!
This is the time of year when we make resolutions, and yours might include taking better control of your health or just making sure you’re caught up on important health checkups, like mammograms, colonoscopies, and Pap tests. MCC is here to help. Give us a call today at 964-1251 to make an appointment. You’ll be glad you did!
If you’re looking for help managing your diabetes or guidance on how to eat healthier, we can help with that, too. You can see our registered dietitian or diabetes educator for free! Call 964-1251 for your appointment.
We are starting our free, drive through COVID-19 surveillance testing again on Wednesday mornings and Thursday afternoons, starting January 6, 2021. This is testing for people who do not have symptoms.
There is no cost, you do not need to be a patient at MCC, and you do not need to leave your car to be tested.
Call us at 964-1251 to make an appointment. We are so glad to be providing this important service to our community again!
Like you, we’ve been doing our best to navigate through the wild ride of 2020, making a lot of changes, adjustments, and working hard to keep our patients and staff safe. We remain productive, healthy, and grateful that our patients continue to entrust us with their most precious possession: their health.
As we look back on this unforgettable year, we like to focus on the positive. We celebrated babies’ births and rejoiced in weddings. We were delighted that two amazing new providers, Dr. Jennifer Kreger and Physician Assistant Stefanie Forrester, joined the MCC team this year.
And although we can’t share our famous potlucks or have our salsa taste off or Halloween costume contest, we still have fun working together. There are still smiles and laughter in our clinic, and we still bring the #bestcareanywhere to our patients.
Here’s to our patients, staff, and community! And to a happy and healthy 2021!
