How about getting fruit and vegetables, back to school supplies AND a COVID vaccine, all in the same place?

A pop-up vaccination clinic is being hosted on Saturday, alongside a free produce market and back to school supplies community free market.

Sara Rivera, who works with Ventura County Public Health on Vaccine Equity, says it’s a way to encourage underserved families in Ventura County to get vaccinated.

No appointments are required.

The clinic will be offering the Pfizer vaccine, available to all eligible age 12 and up (parent/guardian permission required for those under 18). The Johnson and Johnson vaccine will also be available for 18+.
