California advocacy group says farm workers should be prioritized for Covid-19 vaccine

California farm workers, who have faced particularly high risks for infection during the pandemic, should be prioritized for a Covid-19 vaccine, according to a coalition of 11 farmworker advocate organizations. Last Tuesday, the coalition submitted its recommendations to the governor’s office and health task force.
