Solano County is getting another shot at helping the COVID-19 pandemic. About 4,000 of them, to be precise.
For the second consecutive weekend, a vaccination clinic will be held at the Solano County Fairgrounds for 4,000 Solano County residents who meet the eligibility requirements. This currently includes health care workers, first responders, and Solano County residents over the age of 75. Vaccination appointments are open to all those who are in an eligible tier, regardless of where they receive medical care.
The clinic will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, thanks to a partnership between Solano County Public Health, Kaiser Permanente, NorthBay Healthcare, Partnership HealthPlan of California, Medic Ambulance and Touro University California. Solano County Public Health is providing the vaccine (Moderna) and will schedule appointments for community members. The partner organizations are providing staff to administer vaccinations and manage logistics.
The two-day event comes just one week after 3,500 shots were administered last week at the fairgrounds. Benicia held a one-day event on Feb. 2 that saw approximately 1,400 people receive a shot. The go-ahead was given for the weekend event on Wednesday.
