Sonoma County issues COVID-19 guidance for holiday gatherings and travel

People planning to travel and attend gatherings over the holidays are advised to make sure they have proper documents required by some destinations, airlines and events to prove their vaccination or testing status in the county’s COVID-19 guidance released last week. In addition, County Health Officer Dr. Sundari Mase encourages people who are not vaccinated to get immunized before the holidays to avoid another surge in cases like we experienced last year. Read the full press release in English and Spanish for complete information.

Vaccine Updates and Clinics

As of this week, 73 percent of the County’s 5 and older population is now fully vaccinated, while 79.6 percent have received at least one dose. Vaccine appointments are now available for anyone 5 years or older who wants one at one of the many clinics, pharmacies or health centers in the County. County officials acknowledge that the supply of Pfizer’s pediatric vaccine is less plentiful than the vaccine for those age 12 and older, but will increase in the coming weeks. Go to to find an appointment that works for you and find a list of local clinics on the Sonoma Valley Health Partner Website.

COVID-19 vaccine available for children ages 5-11
