Dr. Andrew Coren, Mendocino County Public Health Officer announced today that all logging industry personnel are now included in the current Agricultural Workers vaccination tier, making them immediately eligible for vaccination as vaccine events become available.
“We are hoping that all the farmers, ranchers and food producers of Mendocino County will take advantage of the upcoming vaccine events,” notes Darcie Antle, Mendocino County Vaccine Coordinator.
Additionally, a posting on Mendocino County’s Facebook page mistakenly included “Lodging” personnel as part of the current vaccination group.
“We would like to clarify that this group was erroneously included with the individuals currently eligible for vaccination,” says Dr. Coren.
“If there are lodging personnel who are directly involved in the preparation of food and/or food services, those persons are eligible for vaccinations now,” he continues.
Dates and times for vaccination events are being posted as soon as they are scheduled on the county’s website. In the coming week, two “First-Dose” clinics will be held for Phase 1A, Tiers 1 and 2of Phase 1B, which includes Agricultural, Logging Industry Workers and those over 65 years of age.
The vaccination events are scheduled for Monday and Wednesday, March 1stand March 3rd. Both vaccine events are located at the Redwood Empire Fairgrounds in Ukiah.
To sign up for either of these events, please visit or log on at the County's vaccine portal or https://www.mendocinocounty.org/community/novel-coronavirus/covid-19-vaccinations/vaccination-clinics. Appointments may also be made by calling the Covid-19 Call Center at (707) 472-2663or (707) 472-2759.
