CORNING, Calif. - Rolling Hills Casino in Corning hosted a free vaccination clinic Saturday for those who signed up.
Close to 1,000 of the pre-vaccination checklists were filled out at Saturday’s mass vaccination clinic, much more than the 600 the casino originally expected.
From 8am to 2pm Saturday afternoon, anyone the age of 18 and above living in Tehama, Butte and Glenn counties were all able to get a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Executive director of the Rolling Hills Clinic, Carole Veloso, said she was more than happy to put together such a large clinic, especially with the help from the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians.
“They feel they are a part of the community and are integral in all its growth,” Veloso beamed. “They know the community needs to have vaccinated people to get the economy moving, to get everything open, and we had the opportunity so we did it.”
Others who got their vaccine today were just as thrilled.
Ruby Green was one of them.
“I am excited,” Green exclaimed. “I’m happy I can do this to protect my family and just feel more comfortable going around and seeing people and getting things back to normal again.”
All you had to do when you arrived was fill out the pre-vaccination checklist, show your ID, sit in the large outdoor tent and wait for your vaccine.
For Veloso, she knows that events like this help the community around her.
“The health and safety of our community can improve,” she said. “That will help schools, places of worship, the casino, everybody!”
The clinic told Action News Now that if you weren’t able to make an appointment today, they still have more appointments available, and you can get the vaccine at any Rolling Hills Clinic.
