On Friday, February 19 at 2:00 pm, former Monterey County Supervisor and new Natividad Board of Trustee Member Simon Salinas will do his part to fight against the pandemic when he receives the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at Natividad.

Supervisor Salinas is a former state assembly member, Salinas City Councilmember and Monterey County supervisor from South County. He was also a professor at Hartnell College and a sixth-grade teacher before his career in public service.

WHEN: Friday, February 19 at 2:00 pm. The shot will be administered at 2:15 pm.
