Sonoma County officials have decided to close some vaccination sites in the region and focus on mobile and pop-up clinics in efforts to reach herd immunity.
"The strategic shift to more mobile and pop-up clinics comes as Sonoma County is attempting to achieve herd immunity by getting the vaccine into as many arms as possible," county officials said in a press release.
Below is a list of clinics and dates of closure:

“Due to the success of the local vaccination effort, we will be pivoting to a more strategic, targeted outreach effort,” said Dr. Urmila Shende, Sonoma County’s vaccine chief. “We are, in essence, identifying where those who have not been vaccinated live, work and play, then we are supporting vaccine events that more effectively reach those individuals.”
