WELCOME TO RANCHO CORDOVA

VETERANS Helping veterans
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.  Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.

Covid 19 immunizations

All eligible VA members can get set up at the VA for their shots - it is my understanding that even if not over 65 an appointment can be made SO DO IT

Other sites are available for the shots, notably UCD, and at some future date, CVS, Walmart, Walgreens...and others

The important thing is to get the shots, regardless of location
