As of late Friday there were still appointmen­ts available for the county-sponsored vaccinatio­n clinic planned for today (Saturday), according to Yuba County Director of Public Health Homer Rice.

The clinic will be administer­ing the single shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

“The Johnson & Johnson vaccine was studied in a different time period and location, so it’s not comparing apples to apples,” Rice said about the difference­s between the different vaccines. “Any vaccine is better than not getting vaccinated, and it is safe and effective against COVID-19.”

The trial was streamed live in another courtroom at Sutter County Superior Court due to members of the jury taking up all audience seats to abide by social distancing. Garibay was at the courthouse on Friday along with his family to watch the trial. Garibay sat in a wheelchair and

some family members wore shorts with #Prayforeli printed on the front.

During his opening argument, Esquivel’s attorney Jesse Santana said his client was being threatened and attacked by Garibay at a house near the restaurant and met his girlfriend at the restaurant after fleeing Garibay. Santana told the jury that Esquivel armed himself after hearing another gunshot at the restaurant and his gun went off

while he attempted to load it.

“He did not act with intent to kill,” Santana said. “...I ask that you keep an open mind until the very end.”

The first witness called by the Sutter County District Attorney’s office was Officer Juan Zavala who responded to the shooting. He provided background about the layout of the restaurant where the shooting took place.

The trial will resume next week.
