HCA transitioning COVID-19 vaccination efforts to “Routine” status versus “State of Emergency.”
The Orange County Health Care Agency (HCA) is transitioning it’s operational, clinical and technological COVID-19 response from an emergency posture to routine business operations. This occurs as COVID-19 Public Health Emergency proclamations are anticipated to end in the first quarter of 2023. Some of those actions include:
- The HCA will transfer most COVID-19 response services to the open marketplace where individuals will self-manage COVID-19 with the help of their primary care providers and other community-based resources.
- HCA-sponsored vaccination clinics will be discontinued at the end of the year.
- HCA’s 17th Street Family Health Clinic will be identified as a vaccine provider on myturn.ca.gov. Residents will be able to call for an appointment at (800) 914-4887.
- HCA’s use of Othena as a clinical operational management system for testing, vaccination, and test to treat services will be transitioned to mainstream platforms by the end of 2022.
