Good news for those age 50+

The City of Benicia sent out an email announcement this morning stating that the Thursday’s vaccine clinic is for those age 50+.  A previous announcement indicated the vaccine would initially be for those 60+, and if there are still reservation openings, the clinic would open further to those 50 and over.

Here’s  the email announcement.

Hello Everyone,

I’m very excited this week that we were able to partner with Solano County Public Health to host another vaccine clinic this week. We were able to get 400 doses of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. We will be focusing on seniors 60 and over in Solano County in hopes of getting vaccine to those most vulnerable who have not yet been able to be vaccinated. If there are still reservation openings, we will open it further to 50 and over. Please see the link in the article below to sign up for a reservation…we will only be accepting those who have signed up online. With our numbers in Solano County trending dangerously up, it is critical we get as many people vaccinated as quickly as we can….
