Watch: Governor Gavin Newsom, local leaders visit vaccine clinic in Coachella

Governor Gavin Newsom and other local officials visited a vaccination clinic in east Coachella Valley Wednesday morning.

The governor praised the county's efforts to vaccinate farmworkers in the east valley through mobile clinics.

"What this county has done no other county in the state had done, you were first to advance the cause of rhetorical equity," Newsom said. "We need to replicate this program all up and down the state of California."
