We are sorry to report three deaths today. They are two men in their 60s and a man in his 80s. Please note, today is when these COVID-19 deaths were confirmed, which can be days or weeks after the people died.
Vaccination continues to be the best line of defense against preventing COVID-19. Antiviral drugs are an important and welcome advancement in COVID-19 treatments, but they are not a substitute for COVID-19 vaccines. Vaccines prepare the immune system to respond quickly when exposed to the virus in order to avert the harm from infection. New data show that oral antiviral medications may decrease the risk of severe disease, hospitalization and death, but these treatments won’t prevent infection like vaccines.
Two vaccination clinics are scheduled for this Friday, November 19. Both clinics will offer the Comirnaty (Pfizer) and Moderna vaccines for first and second doses and boosters, and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for single shots and boosters.

- Shasta County Citizens Advocating Respect (SCCAR) and the Anderson Sikh Centre clinic at Shasta Community Health Center, 3270 Churn Creek Road, Redding from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., with language services in English, Hindi, Punjabi, Gujarati, Spanish and Mien. Youth ages 5 to 17 must have a parent present and parent or guardian consent. For more information, call (530) 440-2626 or (530) 339-0530.
