Dear Friend,

As your Member of Congress, one of my top priorities is to keep you informed on critical issues, such as the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).   It is important to have accurate and up-to-date information to reduce risk.  I encourage our border community to continue reviewing guidance measures provided by the CDC, state and local government websites.  

I want to provide you with the latest information and resources so you can stay prepared.

Due to COVID-19 our office is not open to the public, however, remains operational to help CA-51 constituents in need of assistance with federal agencies.   Our office continues to handle requests by phone and email. 

Should you have questions or comments, please contact our district office at (619) 422-5963.

COVID-19 vaccines are an important tool to help combat COVID-19. As more vaccines become available—and as more people get vaccinated—we will be able to resume many of the activities we missed in the last year.

Please visit the links below for a list of updated vaccination sites available in 
California’s 51st District.

San Diego County Vaccination Sites

 Imperial County Vaccination Sites



Help is on the way! I voted to pass The American Rescue Plan, which will put vaccines in arms, our children safely back in school, money in people's pockets, and people back to work. I'm optimistic that the historic legislative package will save lives and livelihoods in California's 51st District and across the nation.


I'm also pleased to share that the American Rescue Plan contains language from my bill, H.R. 1720 COVID-19 Medical Production Act, which is key to supporting our nation’s economic recovery and the public's well-being. The language will provide $10 billion in additional appropriations for the Defense Production Act to fund testing, personal protective equipment, and vaccine production to combat COVID-19.  


The health and safety of our communities continue to be of utmost importance. I will continue my work in Congress to ensure Americans’ health, safety, and economic security.
