Over 400 people received their vaccination yesterday, including Yountville’s Mayor John Dunbar (pictured here). As vaccines are open to those 50+, this was again organized by the Yountville Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Safeway. The volunteers were instrumental in ensuring what many newly vaccinated people stated was a “smooth operation.” The Town of Yountville provided the space at the Community Center and provided two Town employees to help with Spanish language speaking patients. They both did an amazing job to ensure all those with appointments were able to move through smoothly.
This is good news for reopening efforts as vaccination statistics impact Napa County’s ability to move into the next less restrictive orange tier, projected to happen in the coming weeks. According to recent statistics, 42% of California’s population has received their first dose of the vaccine, and 23% are fully vaccinated.
