Coronavirus (COVID-19) Frequently Asked Questions
First dose TCPHB PODS for school staff including Teachers began February 11th. At this time our PODS in March are second dose only PODS we will be adding more first dose PODS once we are able to administer all second doses due in March. We will put out a Press Release as well as notify the media and social media.
Registration for our March 12 Second dose only PODS will open in MyTurn on March 9 in the afternoon.
Thank you for your question. The registration for the second dose only PODS for March 12th (to vaccinate those that received their first dose on February 11) will open up Tuesday March 9 in the afternoon.
The MyTurn system is now open and theoretically persons can register for the second dose only PODS; HOWEVER, – Trinity County Public Health Branch (TCPHB) has been informed by members of the public of an issue with the MyTurn system in which some persons are being turned away from registering for their second dose.
The following individuals should be able to make an appointment:
- Those 65 years of age and older
- Those in the following sectors:
Probably best to use the Weaverville address.
Our Trinity County Public Health Branch will be holding only second dose PODS in March. Please check back at a later date or reach out to her medical provider or clinic if at high risk for COVID-19.
The reactions you described are some of the known side effects (local reactions) with the COVID-19 vaccine and do not prevent you from getting your second dose. Contraindications to a second dose of COVID-19 vaccine would be an allergic reaction to the first dose that included hives or shortness of breath.
This is not a vaccine so you are able to get the COVID-19 immunization.
Excellent question, as we transition to the public/private partnership with the Third Party Administrator to expand access to vaccination in Trinity County and ensure those at greatest risk are vaccinated, we will be providing second doses to all those that have received first doses for our PHB PODS. We will have the MyTurn ready prior to the March 5th PODS for persons to be able to register for their second dose.
We are anticipating registration will open on March 1, 2021 for all 4 second dose PODS.
