MERCED COUNTY – Governor Gavin Newsom will visit a COVID-19 vaccine clinic today in the Central Valley to highlight the availability of boosters to everyone 18+ and efforts to increase vaccination rates across California as the state prepares for the winter months and emerging variants.
California has put more shots in arms than any other state – administering more than 59.5 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine – and announced first-in-the-nation vaccine measures, including requiring that workers in health care settings be fully vaccinated, adding the COVID-19 vaccine to the list of vaccinations required to attend school in-person when fully authorized for applicable grade spans, and implementing 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, December 1, 2021 at approx. 12:00 p.m.
