Redwood Coast Medical Services (RCMS), in collaboration with Coast Life Support District (CLSD) and the Mendocino Public Health Department, will be running the community’s first mass COVID-19 vaccination clinic.
When: January 16 and 17, 2021, 8:30 am to 2:30 pm
Where: Gualala Community Center, 47950 Center Street, Gualala
Who: By invitation only for Phase 1A and 1B (Tier 1) persons
** Bring your photo ID that matches the name of the invitation.
Our community’s first mass vaccination clinic will be done by invitation only to individuals who signed up on the RCMS COVID19 vaccine interest list. Invitations will be provided via email for this event. We are not calling people.
If you would like to get a COVID19 vaccine please go online and take the COVID19 vaccination questionnaire via these links. Please help friends and family register if they do not have computer access or skills.
During this mass vaccination event, approximately 300 vaccines will be given each day to Phase 1A and 1B (Tier 1) persons.
Phase 1B, Tier 1 was just opened up by Mendocino County and includes:
· Persons over age 75
· Non–health care frontline essential workers (such as restaurant/grocery store)
· Teachers and child care workers
We have already been immunizing frontline healthcare workers, emergency medical service workers, and residents of care facilities (Phase 1A individuals).
RCMS respects that there are MANY more individuals in our community who need the COVID-19 vaccine than can be accommodated at this clinic, and we are working to roll these out as quickly as they become available to us. We are developing the systems to do this safely and efficiently.
RCMS recognizes the urgency of this situation. We also recognize that not all community members have access to computers (for online registration), and not all of our patients are mobile and able to stand in line for a mass vaccination situation. RCMS will also have vaccines available which can be provided in the clinic. We will be contacting people, and announcing to the community, once we have more access to vaccines.
This effort is taking place with a large number of community volunteers who have stepped up to volunteer their time. We are incredibly grateful to them for their valuable contribution of time and skill.
Please stay safe, and know we are working as quickly and safely as possible to get our community immunized.
