Here at MCC, we are honored to be part of the program to vaccinate our community against COVID-19. So far, we have held two very successful vaccine clinics, and we are so happy to give our community a #shotofhope. We understand that many people in our community are anxious to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. But we must follow the Mendocino County Public Health guidelines in giving the vaccines. See the attached chart for more information on these guidelines.
Yesterday, January 20, we started to vaccinate our patients who are 75 and up who have also been diagnosed with diabetes, or COPD, or obesity. These people are the most vulnerable to having severe complications from the virus.
Once these patients have been vaccinated, we will start vaccinating our patients by age, from 100 on down.
If you are not an MCC patient, contact your healthcare provider to let him or her know you are interested in receiving the vaccine. If your healthcare provider is not participating in the vaccine program, please register on www.vaccinatemendo.com.
This site gathers information that we can use to alert people to an upcoming clinic or schedule the appointments for the vaccine. Remember: vaccine supplies are still very limited, so we must watch carefully how we are going through the lists.
More information about the vaccine program can be found on the Mendocino County Public Health website:
