COVID-19 Vaccination Information


UFCW Local 135 has been working hard behind the scenes to provide our members access to the COVID-19 vaccine. Supplies are short but we expect more vaccines to arrive in the coming weeks, which will increase the pace of vaccinations. Please be patient, all that want vaccinations will get them.

Albertsons/Vons is setting up multiple designated vaccination sites around the county for all qualifying members of UFCW Local 135 that don’t have pharmacies at their locations. 

Starting later this month, UFCW Local 135 will also be organizing vaccination clinics with Ralphs pharmacies on Saturdays at our Mission Valley office. Stay tuned for dates.
