Vaccine distribution

55 percent of our eligible county population are now fully immunized! This week, the county has now administered more than 516,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to eligible residents of Sonoma County. As of Wednesday, about 68% of Sonoma County’s population aged 12 and older had received at least one dose of the vaccine.

Just a few weeks ago, vaccine appointments were hard to come by. Now they are plentiful, and anyone aged 12 or over who wishes can get an appointment at one of the many clinics, pharmacies or health centers in the county – often on the same day. Many also accept walk-in patients. Just go to My tour.ca.gov to find an appointment that suits you.

Vaccine for children 12-15 years old, special clinic authorized at SVHS Wednesday

Sonoma County began immunizing children ages 12 to 15 last week with the Pfizer vaccine after FDA approval. As of Wednesday, 4,009 Sonoma County children between the ages of 12 and 15 are partially immunized and 10 are fully immunized. This means that 17.5% of this age group received at least one dose. Appointments are now available on My tour.ca.gov.

County health staff are working with the Sonoma County Office of Education and Safeway for clinics in schools, including for children ages 12 to 15. Learn more and register on scoe.org/vaccines. Upcoming school clinics include a clinic at Sonoma Valley High School on Wednesday, May 26 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., who will now administer vaccines to 12-15 year olds. Pharmacies have also started to vaccinate 12 years and over.


Reopening of metrics and case

Sonoma County remains in the “orange” level in the the state framework. California and Sonoma County are on track to reopen completely by June 15, if hospitalizations remain low and Californians continue to be vaccinated. When California fully reopens the economy, the state will go beyond the blueprint for a more secure economy. Common sense health measures such as masking will remain statewide.

This week, the county’s adjusted case rate edged down to 2.2 new daily cases per 100,000 (compared to 2.4 last week), a test a positivity rate of 0.9%, And one equity metric positivity rate of 1.4. If Sonoma County’s parameters improve, the county could move to the least restrictive “yellow” level in the coming weeks. Keep up the good work Sonoma!

Want to help Sonoma County get into an even less restrictive level and fully reopen by June 15? Keep up the good work by continuing to monitor the mitigation measures we are all now so familiar with – wear your mask in indoor public spaces and in crowds, keep your distance, practice good hand hygiene, limit gatherings and consider getting tested for COVID-19.


This week’s testing opportunities in the Sonoma Valley

County health officials recommend that anyone who goes in public – even if they have no symptoms and / or have been vaccinated against COVID-19 – get tested at least once a month and those who regularly interact with the public are tested twice each month.
