RCMS has no control or say on the priorities on who receives the COVID-19 vaccination, on the number of doses and when received, or on the vaccine type to be used.
The State of California and the County Health Departments control these decisions.
RCMS is taking proactive steps in having people sign up for a COVID-19 vaccination interest list to provide information that will place them into different priority tiers established by the State.
To sign up:
This information will be used when Mendocino and Sonoma County Health Departments allocate the vaccines. As RCMS receives the vaccines it will schedule vaccination appointments using the lists generated from the links above.
As of today, RCMS has received 77 vaccine doses and all have been given to individuals in Tier 1a. RCMS has received no information on the number of doses it will receive in the future or when they will arrive.
As reported in the news, the United States is behind considerably in COVID-19 vaccine distribution.
Your political representatives are the people to whom complaints on the process should be sent.
This is the current situation, but things are constantly changing as additional decisions are made at the State and County levels. We will keep the community informed. Thank you for your understanding.
