Chandran went online to book his shot.
“It was pretty seamless to get an appointment,” he said.
Both locations will be administering the Pfizer vaccine, officials say. Patients even get to stay in their cars when the shot is given.
“We’re here. We’re ready to go,” said Jason Cowen with Curative, the company running the vaccine clinics. “Knowing that there are that many people out here who still need it is something we’re out there trying to help correct.”
Same-day appointments are still available, officials say, and both locations are even accepting patients without an appointment.
McClellan’s site runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, while Cal Expo’s runs from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.MORE NEWS: Sacramento Police Officer Justin Shepard Arrested For Alleged Domestic Violence Incident
