Vaccine Clinics in Sonoma Valley This Week

As of this week, 59 percent of our 12 and older population is now fully vaccinated, while 71 percent has received at least one dose. More than 308,000 County residents have now received at least one dose. Just a few weeks ago, vaccine appointments were hard to come by. Now, they are plentiful, and anyone 12 years or older who wants one can get an appointment at one of the many clinics, pharmacies or health centers in the County — often the same day. Many are also accepting walk-in patients. Just go to to find an appointment that works for you and find a list of local clinics on the Sonoma Valley Health Partner Website.

This Week’s Testing Opportunities in Sonoma Valley

County health officials recommend that everyone who goes into public – even if they don’t have any symptoms and/or have been vaccinated for COVID-19 – get tested at least once per month and those who regularly interact with the public get tested twice each month. The County of Sonoma continues to increase access to free COVID-19 testing, find options in Sonoma Valley below or visit for a complete list.

Reopening Metrics & Case Rates

A recent rise in the County’s new case rate has prevented us from moving into the yellow tier. Health officials say that a key factor is lagging vaccinations among younger adults, with residents ages 18 to 34 accounting for the new cases. According to County data, less than 50 percent of those ages 16 – 34 are fully vaccinated.

Sonoma County remains in the “orange” tier in the state’s framework. California and Sonoma County are on track to fully reopen by June 15, if hospitalizations stay low and Californians continue to get vaccinated. When California fully reopens the economy, the state will move “Beyond the Blueprint” for a Safer Economy. Common-sense health measures such as masking will remain across the state.

This week, the County’s adjusted case rate increased to  2.8 new daily cases per 100,000, a test positivity rate of 1.4 percent, and an equity metric positivity rate of 1.7.
