On January 16 and 17, 2021, Redwood Coast Medical Services (RCMS) in partnership with Mendocino County Public Health and Coast Life Support District administered over 700 COVID-19 vaccinations at the Gualala Community Center.
COVID-19 vaccines were given to Phase 1B, Tier 1 individuals which included ages 75+, teachers and child care providers and non-healthcare essential workers. This was an “invite only” vaccination event. The event was supported by over 30 community volunteers.
If you would like to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and live in the RCMS services area (Southern Mendocino and Northern Sonoma County), please fill out this survey to be added to the list:
To date, over 3,000 people have signed up via this survey to request the vaccine. It will take time to work our way through the list, as supplies are still very limited and each person will need to receive two doses. We know many people are eager to get the vaccine and we appreciate everyone’s patience. RCMS will invite individuals on the list when it is their turn.
RCMS is coordinating with the County to host additional mass vaccine clinics in the future. If we continue to get regular vaccine supplies, we would host these on a weekly basis. However, this is dependent on our ability to get vaccines from the County.
