Travel Advisory Updated April 2, 2021
CDPH and the CDC recommend delaying travel until you are fully vaccinated, as air, bus or rail travel increases the chance of getting and spreading COVID-19 particularly with more transmissable variants of the virus. After you’ve been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you should keep taking precautions — like wearing a mask, staying 6 feet apart from others, and avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces in public places until more is known. Read the updated travel advisory and learn more about domestic travel during COVID-19.
COVID-19 Vaccination Survey Scams
Fake COVID-19 survey scams are being circulated to get your personal information. Currently, no post-vaccine surveys are being conducted by Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson via email or text message. Do not open the messages or provide any personal information, including credit card and/or bank information.

SacCounty Transitions Vaccination Site to Curative
Starting the week of March 22, the County will begin transitioning the Cal Expo drive-through vaccination site to its partner, Curative, which also runs the large drive-through vaccination site at McClellan Park. For the transition, the Cal Expo vaccination site will halt first dose scheduling through the County’s appointment system to finish the series of second doses. By April,19, Curative will begin scheduling first dose appointments at Cal Expo. This transition will allow the County to prepare additional vaccination sites when vaccine supply is greater in the coming months. Read the 3/19/2021 SacCountyNews article for details.
