COVID-19 Statistics | November 2, 2021 | Lost Coast Outpost

Humboldt County Public Health has today reported five admissions due to COVID-19, including one resident in his 30s, one in his 40s, two in his 60s and one in his 80s or older.

A new case was also reported and six cases were removed from the census when it was determined that they were from another jurisdiction, previously reported or not a COVID-19 case. The total number of residents tested positive for the virus in the county is 9,390.

An advisory panel to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) voted unanimously today to recommend a pediatric dose of the Pfizer vaccine to children aged 5 to 11 years under the Food and Drug Administration’s emergency use permit issued last week.

The CDC is expected to make a formal recommendation within a few days. California Department of Public Health (CDPH) officials said the state expects to roll out vaccines to this age group later in the week after the review process is complete.

Humboldt County’s vaccination and testing services are available free of charge. Those who receive their first or second dose of vaccine at a public health office in Eureka, Willow Creek or Garberville can opt for a $ 25 gift card to Renner Petroleum or Coming Attractions Theaters. Incentives are only offered in these places on a first-come, first-served basis.

Appointments are recommended for most vaccination clinics and required at Public Health Main in Eureka due to an increase in demand for additional doses and boosters. Sign up in advance at MyTurn.ca.gov.

Vaccines, including boosters, are widely available at local pharmacies. To check the availability of a specific vaccine or booster, visit the vaccines.gov page, or send a zip code to 438829 to find a nearby pharmacy that offers vaccines.

CDPH has recommended that all eligible residents be vaccinated against COVID-19. Those at increased risk of hospitalization and severe COVID-19 disease should receive a Pfizer or Moderna booster at least six months after their second dose. The CDPH also recommended that adults who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine receive a booster if two months have passed since their first dose. For more information on government booster recommendations and guidance, read the COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Questions and Answers page.

Pfizer is currently approved for people 12 years and older, and Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are approved for people 18 years and older. County residents aged 16 and 17 can receive a vaccination at a public health clinic without a parent or guardian physically present, as long as they have a signed consent form. Children under 16 must still be accompanied by their parent or guardian.

Telephone lines in the COVID-19 Call Center (1-707-441-5000) have been restored. English- and Spanish-speaking call recipients are available to answer questions related to COVID-19 vaccination, testing, and prevention.
