The Yountville Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the town of Yountville and Safeway supermarkets, is organizing a coronavirus vaccination clinic from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday. The clinic will be held at the Community Center on Washington Street.
Residents 50 and older can sign up for immunizations, in line with California guidelines on distributing the COVID-19 vaccine. About 400 appointments are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Monday clinic will provide the first of two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, and visitors will make appointments at the event for second doses at a follow-up clinic scheduled for May 3.

Visitors also must bring a driver license or state identification card, as well as a medical insurance card. Those without medical insurance can state that fact during check-in. Those requiring proof of employment may show an ID badge, pay stub, or a letter from one’s employer.
Those receiving the vaccine are asked to wear short sleeves if possible and not to attend the clinic if they feel unwell or experience symptoms of COVID-19. English- and Spanish-speaking volunteers will be on hand to answer visitors’ questions.
