All HCSO deputies offered a chance to get a Covid-19 vaccine, working through vaccination plan for inmates


EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM) — When it comes to Covid-19 vaccinations, first responders and incarcerated individuals are included in phase 1B.

When vaccines first became available to members of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, 47 patrol deputies and 32 correctional deputies expressed their interest in getting a shot. As supply increased, a link to register for a vaccine appointment was sent out to everyone in the agency. All deputies have been given the opportunity to receive a vaccine, but it’s not required.

“Like I said because it’s not mandatory, it’s just optional at this point for our staff. We are not keeping records of who is vaccinated,” according to Public Information Specialist Samantha Karges.

As far as vaccinating inmates, the Humboldt County Correctional Facility is following the County’s tier system starting with those 70 years old or older. Three inmates met the criteria and were offered a vaccine, but 2 of them declined. Eligibility has since been expanded to those 65 and older.

“The vaccinations come from Public Health, so Public Health is the one providing it to us. however we know that all the nurses working in the jail under Wellpath have been vaccinated,” Karges adds.
