Kern County expands eligibility for COVID-19 vaccines as state begins to take over distribution.

ARVIN’S VETERANS HALL WILL BE A COVID VACCINATION SITE. This is crucial as the surrounding communities often house essential agricultural workers.

Gavin Newsom reported via @cagovernor Instagram, “We’re taking steps to get #COVID19 vaccines to the hardest-hit communities. With a partnership with OptumServe & counties, we’re opening up to 11 vaccine sites, like here in Arvin. We are also increasing supply by 58% to the Central Valley & allocating 34k doses to farmworkers.”

Distributing Masks to Central Valley Essential Workers

Distributing Masks to Central Valley Essential Workers

Thank you Local Hearts Foundation for your donation of 10,000 masks! Dolores Huerta Foundation Organizers Luisa and Angel spent their week distributing to some of #CentralValley’s #essentialworkers in the fields of Parlier, Lindsay and Strathmore, California. Each person also received a workers rights resource flyer to ensure they are informed of their rights during these unprecedented times. These vulnerable professionals are not likely to receive PPE from employers. They are often working outdoors in conditions of poor air quality – and are statistically most likely to be working alongside someone with COVID-19. Access to these masks will save lives.
