Humboldt County is now using the State of California’s “My Turn” platform for COVID-19 vaccination notifications and scheduling.
My Turn is an online system that allows residents to check eligibility and book vaccination appointments locally as they become available. All counties are required to adopt this new platform to continue receiving COVID-19 vaccine allocations from the state as part of an effort to increase the pace of vaccine distribution and administration.
As part of this transition, Humboldt County’s online “Vaccine Interest Form” will no longer be utilized.
- If you filled out the Interest Form but have not received a dose of COVID-19 vaccine, submit your information through My Turn (MyTurn.ca.gov) to be notified of eligibility and sign up for an appointment.
- If you have received the first dose of a two-dose vaccine from public health and need a second dose, do not use My Turn. You should receive a second-dose appointment invitation from public health via email five to seven days prior to a clinic. If you received your first dose from another provider in Humboldt County, that provider will contact you to schedule the second dose.
- If you have not received a dose of COVID-19 vaccine, go to MyTurn.ca.gov to learn more about eligibility, schedule an appointment and receive updates about available appointments and locations. Public Health clinics are available for registration on My Turn starting this week. More providers in Humboldt will be transitioning to My Turn in the coming weeks for their first-dose appointments.
My Turn requires users to schedule both their first and second dose appointments at the same time. Please note that it may be very difficult to reschedule missed second-dose appointments through the state’s system, and residents should select appointment times carefully to ensure both doses of a two-dose vaccine are received within the recommended 42-day timeframe.
The system also requires an email address or mobile phone. Those without access to email or a mobile phone or who have questions about My Turn can call the California COVID-19 Hotline at 1-833-422-4255 (Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday-Sunday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
For general information, questions about second-dose appointments or assistance navigating this new process, call the Humboldt County Joint Information Center at 707-441-5000, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
For the most recent COVID-19 information, visit cdc.gov or cdph.ca.gov. Local information is available at humboldtgov.org or during business hours by contacting email@example.com or calling 707-441-5000.
