Sacramento Medical Reserve Corp (SMRC) volunteers continue to be ready to answer your questions about COVID-19.
In April 2020, Sacramento County Public Health launched the Sacramento County COVID-19 Hotline answering community members’ questions regarding COVID-19 testing, COVID-19 vaccination, COVID-19 symptoms, etc. The Sacramento County COVID-19 Hotline is a great way to talk to SMRC volunteers who have vast knowledge of all topics related to COVID-19. Volunteers from the organization have been assisting Sacramento County Public Health in staffing the Hotline since it launched last spring.
Over the last 14 months, the volunteers have answered nearly 10,000 calls from community members. At the peak time during the winter COVID-19 surge, volunteers were answering more than 100 calls per day.
“During my shift at the Hotline, if I help just one person find the correct resource, or obtain a vaccine appointment, or help someone have some peace of mind, I will be satisfied. We are there to serve,” said Michael Reynolds. Michael is one of a dozen current volunteers who staff the COVID-19 Hotline during the week.
The Sacramento County COVID-19 Hotline is available to provide accurate, reliable, trusted information and support to the entire community.
The Sacramento County COVID-19 Hotline phone number is (916) 875-2400, and is staffed Monday-Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., or send general COVID-19 questions to COVID19@saccounty.net
. If you have COVID-19 vaccine related questions, email COVID19vaccine@saccounty.net
COVID-19 Vaccinations – Safe + Easy
Getting the COVID-19 vaccine is safe, easy and free for everyone with no proof of residency required. Vaccination protects you from getting sick with COVID-19 and lowers the chance of spreading the virus to your loved ones. Vaccines are one of our most powerful tools to end the pandemic. Vaccinations are available days, evenings and weekends, and walk-ins are accepted at most sites. Go to MyTurn.ca.gov to find a vaccination site near you.
Missed 2nd Doses
Have you missed your second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine? Whether you didn’t get around to it or you’ve heard stories of temporary side effects, you need to get your second dose to be protected. The good news is that you don’t have to start the series over and the County can help you get back on track to immunity. Just refer to your vaccine card and go to the County’s Vaccination webpage
to get matched up with the type you had for your first dose - either Pfizer or Moderna. If you lost your vaccine card, we can help you with that, too, email COVID19vaccine@saccounty.net
or call the COVID Hotline today.
