Correction: Lassen County Public Health Department does not provide COVID booster shots for adults

On Monday, Oct. 2, Lassen News reported COVID booster shots were available by appointment on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Lassen County Public Health Department, 1445 Paul Bunyan Road. Call (530) 251-8183 to make an appointment for a COVID booster.

That information, provided to us by the Lassen County Public Health Department, is incorrect. In an effort to clarify this information, on Wednesday, Oct. 4, a representative from the department said the COVID boosters are available only for those 18 and younger.

If you want a COVID booster, check with your local drug store to see if it can provide a booster for you.

Lassen News regrets both the inconvenience and the error.
