February 10, 2021 – Today the County of Nevada will go live with the State’s MyTurn vaccine notification and scheduling platform.
An extremely limited number of appointments will be available as we test the system before expanding access in the coming days and weeks. These first few appointments are a small pilot of MyTurn in Nevada County. Nevada County residents who have signed up for MyTurn and are currently eligible for vaccination will receive notification that appointments are available. We expect that these appointments will fill up very quickly.
We are releasing these few appointments to test the system and work out any glitches. We expect to release larger number of appointments next week and we want to ensure that the system runs smoothly.
All Nevada County residents are encouraged to sign up for MyTurn to receive notification of vaccine eligibility and open appointments. Go to myturn.ca.gov or call 1-833-422-4255 to register. Those who are not yet eligible can sign up to be notified when it’s their turn to be vaccinated. As more vaccine becomes available in Nevada County, the community will begin to see more appointments available on MyTurn.
The Public Health Department is grateful for your patience as we test this new system.
Please stay informed as this is an evolving situation and continue to be patient as we meet this unprecedented challenge
