VaxFacts from the Mayor – May 7, 2021

unnamed (69)

It’s never been easier to get vaccinated against COVID-19 in Los Angeles.

For the first time, the City has opened up appointment-free options for vaccinations, and we’ve moved more doses to walk-up centers and mobile clinics — all part of our ongoing effort to bring these life-saving vaccines directly into communities and make getting a shot as quick, accessible, and safe as possible.

With vaccination rates slowing down slightly across the United States, we’re taking several steps to expand access even further and encourage Angelenos to get their shot –– including opening up a new mobile night clinic at the South Park Recreation Center in South L.A. from 9am to 9pm; and offering a drive-through option at Cal State L.A., allowing for up to 9,000 doses a day to be administered at the location. As we make these critical changes, Dodger Stadium will wind down operations by the end of May.

Each of us has a vital role to play in ending this pandemic and powering L.A.’s economic recovery. If you’ve already been vaccinated, now is the time to encourage your loved ones and community members to do the same. And if you’ve yet to roll up your sleeve, this is the moment to show up, get your shot, and save lives.
