COVID-19 Vaccine Update

April 30, 2021

The supply of COVID-19 vaccines in the United States is currently limited and the County of Sonoma is following State and Federal guidelines for distribution. Priority administration of the vaccine has been determined by a number of factors including risk of exposure from work or living environments, as well as vulnerabilities due to age and medical conditions.

The Sonoma County Department of Health is coordinating with primary care providers on plans for expanding immunizations. Your health center will contact you about scheduling when the vaccine is available for you. When you are eligible for a vaccine, and not before that, you will be able to make an appointment through your provider, or at a vaccination clinic.

 

As of April 22, a total of 409,856 doses have been administered to Sonoma County residents, with 79,807 partially vaccinated and 171,046 full vaccinated. This means 41 percent of the county’s 16 and older population is now fully vaccinated, while 61 percent has received at least one dose. The county’s vaccine distribution website is continually updated, giving detailed information about the vaccination rollout, safety and how the vaccine is being disseminated in Sonoma County. To schedule a vaccine appointment, residents can go to MyTurn.ca.gov website or continue to use the county’s vaccination clinic list at socoemergency.org/vaccine to find an appointment.
