SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The California Legislature has approved $600 payments for about 5.7 million people. Gov. Gavin Newsom has said he will sign the legislation into law.

People with low to moderate incomes will be eligible to get the money. That includes people who claim the California earned income tax credit on their tax returns and, in general, people making $30,000 or less per year.

Immigrants who pay taxes using an individual taxpayer identification number and make $75,000 a year or less after deductions would also get the money. People who receive assistance from state programs benefiting low-income families and people who are blind and disabled are also eligible.

Gov. Gavin Newsom says more vaccines are headed to California's vast Central Valley, an agricultural region that's been hit hard by coronavirus.

In the small farming city of Arvin on Monday, Newsom said that 11 mobile clinics will open in the region later this week. The facilities are designed to vaccinate people, mostly farmworkers, who don't have transportation to larger vaccination sites or can't navigate the state's online signup portal.

He says the state is also sending 34,000 extra vaccine doses there from a pharmacy that wasn't using them quickly enough. The shift in allocations comes as California moves beyond inoculating health care workers to include food and farm workers and teachers.
