Now included are people 50 and older, caregivers, children 6 to 23 months of age, and pregnant women. Also day care workers, teachers (especially elementary school), firefighters, police officers, detention officers, restaurant workers and other jobs that require close contact.

The walk-in clinics begin on the 3rd.
