PHOTO GALLERY: Vaccination efforts for farm workers get underway at The Forty Acres

The Forty Acres, a historic plot of land in Delano, will be open the next six weekends as a mass COVID-19 vaccination site for farm workers in Kern County. Saturday and Sunday were the first days the location was open for such efforts. County leaders who helped organize the clinics anticipate that thousands of farm workers will be vaccinated because of the initiative. Appointments can be made through the bilingual toll free call centers of UFW Foundation, 661-501-4280, and the Latino COVID-19 task force’s Project Abuelita, 661-525-5900.
