A wide range of local organizations and wellness practitioners will be on-site to offer guidance on everything from how to pack a “go bag” to how people can get connected and stay supported during these trying times. The Sonoma Valley Community Health Center will be on hand to answer your questions about the COVID-19 vaccine and offering first and second doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to those who want them. In addition, Rev. Reichert will lead an interactive demonstration of simple breathing techniques that individuals can use to manage stress amid crisis moments. The demonstration will also be conducted in Spanish.
