COVID-19 Vaccine Delivered to Residents in Select Areas June 9-15
(Woodland, CA) – To improve vaccination rates, Yolo County is launching a free, call-to-order program to deliver and administer COVID-19 vaccine to local residents at their homes or businesses in select parts of the county June 9-15.
Residents age 12 and older, who live in Esparto, Dunnigan, Guinda, Woodland or West Sacramento and who would like to get vaccinated at their home or business can call (530) 666-8665 to schedule an appointment between 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. during the days that the program is in their area. These areas were selected because they lag behind the countywide average of residents who have been vaccinated. During times of high call volume, residents can leave a message and receive a call back to schedule their appointment. County staff will then come to their home or business to administer the vaccine. Yolo County will be vaccinating residents in the following areas from June 9-15:
- June 9: Esparto, Dunnigan, Guinda
- June 10-12: Woodland
- June 13-15: West Sacramento
“I am very excited to offer this opportunity for Yolo County residents to get vaccinated wherever is most convenient to them,” said Dr. Aimee Sisson, Yolo County’s Public Health Officer. “Residents may face barriers to getting vaccinated at existing clinic locations, and this program eliminates many of those barriers. For example, if you are a single mom with kids at home all day, we will bring the vaccine to you at home. If you can’t take time off of work to get vaccinated, we will bring the vaccine to you at work. Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 has never been easier.”
In addition to this call-to-order program, Yolo County continues to host public vaccine clinics. Next week, Yolo County has scheduled three public vaccine clinics at the following locations:
- Tuesday, June 8 at Harper Junior High School in Davis from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
- Wednesday, June 9 at the HHSA Bauer Building in Woodland from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
- Sunday, June 13 at Holy Rosary Church in Woodland from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
It is recommended that all who are eligible (those age 12 and up) get vaccinated as soon as possible. Data show that the vaccines protect residents from currently circulating strains of COVID-19, significantly reducing the chance of becoming severely ill or dying from COVID-19. All vaccines have been shown to be safe and effective and are free. The more people who are vaccinated, the harder it is for COVID-19 to spread.
