We know that our seniors are the most vulnerable to serious illness and death if they contract COVID-19 and we want to get them vaccinated as quickly as possible," said Board of Supervisors Chairman
Curt Hagman. "We ask the community for patience as we continue to receive doses from the State of California to serve our senior population and as we continue to vaccinate health care workers."
