COVID-19 Update: County Announces Order That Vaccinations will be Given

Two-and-a-half weeks after the first phase of local COVID-19 vaccinations began with acute care professionals, the Lassen County Public Health Department has announced the order in which the remaining doses will be administered to Lassen residents.

There are no dates with the schedule because it is unknown how long it will take to vaccinate each segment of the population or how many doses will be received from the state. All vaccinations will be by appointment only, through the LCPHD.

The vaccination schedule is broken up into three phases and the first phase has three different tiers. Click here to download the county’s schedule.
