Shasta County Public Health says they’re not concerned with “vaccine tourism” 03/18/2021

Published March 23, 2021

"Vaccine Tourism" is becoming a popular term as the pandemic continues.

People who are struggling to get vaccinated in their own county are traveling to other cities, and sometimes out of state, to get vaccinated.

KRCR spoke to Kerri Schuette with Shasta County Public Health about this issue, and she said 'No,' as far as the public health clinics.
