Officials at Fresno’s Sierra Pacific Orthopedic Surgery say they learned that Humboldt County health officials were urgently needed 3,000 COVID-19 vaccinations to keep up with this week’s schedule.
Sierra Pacific Orthopedics had an extra vial and wanted to help, so they called Sheriff Margaret Mimus and found a way to deliver the vaccine from the valley to other counties.
With the approval of the Fresno County Health Department, the sheriff’s office loaded the vial into a fixed-wing aircraft and sent it to Humboldt this morning.
Congressmen delivered the cooler box to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office in time for 400 people waiting for their appointment this morning.
