Butte County Public Health is ramping up COVID-19 prevention efforts by adding vaccination clinics for the Moderna vaccine this month and launching a clinic for the Pfizer vaccine recently approved for children ages 5-11.
The department announced Friday (Oct. 29) that it was expanding Moderna vaccinations in Chico with clinics Mondays and Tuesdays, 2-6 p.m. at 560 Cohasset Road, throughout November except Thanksgiving week. The online portal MyTurn.ca.gov schedules appointments and contains information about all clinics, including Wednesdays at the Cohasset site, 3-6 p.m., for Pfizer vaccinations for people ages 12 and over and Johnson & Johnson for adults.
The Butte County COVID-19 Call Center, which offers assistance booking appointments, confirmed Monday (Nov. 1) that a Pfizer clinic for kids 5-11 is scheduled Nov. 13, 3-5 p.m., at the Cohasset location. The Federal Drug Administration gave Pfizer emergency-use authorization for that age group on a lower dose of its vaccine.
