As Nevada County front-line healthcare workers receive the COVID-19 vaccine, the timeline and priority levels for vaccine distribution has been on the mind of the community. People have questions about the new vaccine, its safety, and its effectiveness.
211 is preferred community connection point for information and resources about COVID-19 in Nevada and Placer Counties and the Tahoe Truckee region. We work closely with Public Health to be able to provide the most up-to-date and accurate information, and will continue to do so for the duration of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Following are official sources for COVID-19 vaccine information that you may find helpful.

In addition, we have recently optimized COVID-19 resource listings on our websites, making them more accessible and searchable by region. By integrating the listings into our back-end resource engine, we have created a more consistent user experience. The public can easily access information about COVID-19 guidance, financial assistance, distance learning, as well as official vaccine information sources. We hope this single reference point will benefit county residents, especially those who live and work across county borders.
You can always call 211 to speak to one of our call agents about your specific questions and needs or visit the 211 website.
