Throwback Thursday - Remembering the Monterey Conference Center Grand Reopening on January 31, 2018
This Throwback Thursday we remember the amazing and fun grand re-opening of our beautiful Monterey Conference Center that took place on January 31, 2018. We can't wait for this local treasure and economic engine to reopen, just as we are equally excited for the rest of our economy to reopen and get our community back to work - including the Monterey Sports Center, Monterey Public Library, Monterey Bay Aquarium, museums, hotels, restaurants, theaters, and all of our local businesses. Thankfully, we are getting a handle on the pandemic with vaccinations and more, so let's keep it up! Our Flickr account has more fun photos from this event
On Wednesday, March 17, many more people will qualify for vaccination as the state opens eligibility to those 16-64 who are considered at the very highest risk for severe illness and death from COVID-19 as a direct result of one or more specific, serious health conditions.
IMPORTANT NOTE: VACCINATION LOCATIONS WITH APPOINTMENT DATES AND TIMES UPDATED REGULARLY: Refer to the Monterey County Health Dept (MCHD) vaccine appointments web page for the latest information - mcvaccinate.com
