Vaccinations for the coronavirus continue at Plumas District Hospital. Plumas News was there when Public Health Officer Dr. Mark Satterfield and Dr. Jeff Kepple received their doses of the Pfizer vaccine, but they were far from the only ones — over the three-day period before Christmas Eve, the hospital will administer 108 doses..
The first doses are allocated to PDH employees who are at the highest risk of exposure to COVID-19. The vaccine is optional for healthcare workers, but most employees have opted-in.
“I am pleased with the large percentage of our staff who have opted to receive the vaccine, said chief executive officer JoDee Read. “This is an important step in ensuring that we are available to care for the community when they need us.”
The vaccine is not available to the public at this time. For more information about the COVID-19 vaccine in Plumas County, please visit https://www.plumascounty.us/2749/COVID-19-Vaccine.
