Agricultural workers, homeless people, pregnant people, and people displaced by wildfires are also still eligible, as are all adults over 65, medical workers, prison workers, and caretakers.
Those considering attending the clinic should be prepared to stand outside in line or have someone else stand in line for them, and are invited to bring something to sit on. In addition, clinic attendees should be sure to wear a mask.
