HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra to tour vaccination facility in Salinas, CA

The Grower Shipper Association of Central California (GSA) and Clinica de Salud del Valle de Salinas (CSVS) have helped administer more than 40,000 vaccines to farm workers since February.

Becerra will highlight Biden-Harris Administration’s vaccine outreach efforts in the area and nationwide and discuss increasing vaccine access. 

On Friday, July 23, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra will tour a vaccination clinic in Salinas, CA. The Gower-Shipper Association BB #:162651, along with Clinica De Salud Del Valley De Salinas, created a clinic focused exclusively on vaccinating farmworkers and their families, partially funded through the HRSA Health Center COVID-19 Vaccine Program.

After this, Secretary Becerra will lead a discussion on increasing vaccine access with community leaders and elected officials and hold a press availability.

HHS has been working closely with clinics, businesses and community leaders to meet President Biden’s ambitious vaccine access goals and ensure that everyone has an opportunity to protect themselves and their community. You can learn more at http://wecandothis.hhs.gov.
