Senior Center

The Fontana Community Senior Center will be hosting a Veterans and Spouses Vaccination Event on Saturday, April 10.

A coronavirus vaccination event will be held in Fontana on Saturday, April 10.

The event, which will be by appointment only, will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Fontana Community Senior Center, 16710 Ceres Avenue.

The event will be presented by Veterans Partnering With Communities, Inc., in partnership with San Bernardino County Department of Public Health, San Bernardino County 5th District Supervisor Joe Baca Jr., the City of Fontana, and the Fontana Kiwanis Club.

Danny Marquez, the president/founder of Veterans Partnering With Communities, said that although the event was originally designed to specifically help veterans, many doses have now been made available, and so vaccinations will be given to any persons living in the county ages 18 and over.

"In a challenging year of the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions which canceled all our prior city co-sponsored events this past year, we were blessed and extremely grateful working with our great community partners making this lifesaving event possible," Marquez said.

The vaccination event will replace the organization's annual city co-sponsored Veterans Health and Wellness Fair that would ordinarily have been held, he said.

"The Johnson and Johnson one-and-done vaccine will be utilized, so no second appointments are necessary," Marquez said.
