ALAMEDA COUNTY – Tomorrow in Alameda County, Governor Gavin Newsom will visit a local health clinic to highlight the state’s ongoing efforts to increase vaccination rates and promote booster shots for eligible populations. Boosters have been approved for the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.
California has put more shots in arms than any other state – administering over 53 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine – and implemented first-in-the-nation vaccine measures, including adding the COVID-19 vaccine to the list of vaccinations required to attend school in-person, requiring that workers in health care settings be fully vaccinated, and a standard that all school staff and all state workers either show proof of full vaccination or be tested at least once per week.
WHEN: Wednesday, October 27, 2021 at approx. 10:30 a.m.
