COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics

Thank you to our many community and clinical volunteers who are giving their time to make our community vaccination clinics possible. To date, Adventist Health Sonora has administered over 6,700 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for Tuolumne County residents, healthcare workers, and long-term care residents.

At this time, vaccine supplies are unstable, and we have been unable to schedule any large scale first-dose vaccination clinics. However, we are anticipating some extra vaccine during our second-dose clinic on Saturday, February 27. There are approximately 150 appointments available for Tuolumne County residents, age 65 and older.

For those scheduled to receive their second shot:

If you have already received your first vaccination at one of the Adventist Health Sonora clinics at the Mother Lode Fairgrounds, we will see you at the same time as your first appointment, 4 weeks after your first shot, according to the table below.

Guidance for the Moderna vaccine recommends receiving the second dose 28 days or later after the first. Guidance for the Pfizer vaccine recommends receiving the second dose 21 days or later after the first. The vaccine is not as effective if the second dose is administered too soon, but the second dose can be administered at any time beyond the minimum of 3 weeks for Pfizer and 4 weeks for Moderna.

To ensure that everyone returns at the appropriate interval and does not get the second shot too soon, we are scheduling the first and second dose clinics 4 weeks apart.

If your first dose was on:

Please return for your second dose on:

January 30

February 27

February 6

March 6

February 20 or 21

March 21

If you were scheduled to return for your second shot on February 20 or 21 but missed your appointment, please return to the next scheduled second dose clinic on February 27 or March 6. You will not achieve maximum protection from COVID-19 without obtaining your second vaccination.

For anyone seeking their first shot:

The process for vaccinating our entire population is not a sprint. This is a marathon that will take many months to achieve. We want each and every person to be vaccinated as quickly as possible and appreciate your patience.

We will update this webpage as we know more about our supply of vaccine and hope to offer additional appointments as soon as possible.

The Tuolumne County Public Health Department continues to identify individuals on its waiting list who are currently eligible for vaccination and schedule them for the county’s weekday vaccination clinics. More information and their vaccination interest form is available here.
