May 21—The 2021 Yuba County Baby Fair will take place today (Friday).

Sarah Kotko, program coordinator for First 5 Yuba County Children and Families Commission, said the event usually takes place in person, however, it will be a drive-through event this year.

There will also be car seat screenings and tobacco product information.

"We just want to make sure that families are well taken care of," Kotko said.

She said pregnant, breastfeeding and new moms with children under the age of 1, as well as dads with children under 1, are welcome.

Kotko said people over the age of 18 can also register to get vaccinated for COVID-19 during the event. To register to get the COVID-19 vaccine, visit https://myturn.ca.gov.
