A couple thousand people will likely be coming to the Solano County Fairgrounds this weekend, but it will be to hopefully end what has been a wild ride that began in 2020.

The Solano County Department of Public Health is partnering with Kaiser Permanente to host a vaccination clinic in Vallejo at the fairgrounds on Friday and Saturday and possibly Monday, according to District 1 Supervisior Erin Hannigan.

The clinic will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day and that Moderna shots can be administered to Solano County residents, all of which must either aged 75 and older or in tiers 1 or 2 of Phase 1A. Hannigan is hopeful that 2,500 shots can be given during the weekend.

I know there are some people who don’t want to get vaccinated but I’m hoping they will change their mind. I’ve talked to a few friends and they tell me they felt so good when they got it.
