Dr. Victor Salazar, medical director of Bay Area Community Health, still encourages people to get the vaccine and to get tested. He said he believes that continued hesitancy, particularly among Latinos, comes from misinformation spread mainly through social media, and a lack of access to medical services.
This free Covid testing clinic for people with and without insurance.
