Sponsored by:

Update at 3:41 p.m.:  Tuolumne County Health is providing an update on the COVID-19 vaccines being provided at Wednesday’s (10/11) Free Flu Clinic in the Manzanite building at the Mother Lode Fairgrounds off Stockton Street.

Health officials advised that COVID-19 vaccines will only be available to certain members of the community.

“Due to the emerging commercialization of the COVID-19 vaccine, Tuolumne County Public Health will only be receiving a small amount of the new vaccine, which will only be available for those who are uninsured, underinsured, or who qualify for the VFC (Vaccines for Children) Program,” stated health officials.

Those who have private insurance are asked to contact their primary care provider or local pharmacy to schedule a COVID-19 vaccination appointment.
