VaxFacts from the Mayor – May 17, 2021

From the first moments COVID-19 vaccines were approved, our City has done everything possible to get people vaccinated swiftly and safely.

Those efforts continue today, with daily work to increase access to life-saving doses across Los Angeles. And right now, with expanded eligibility, extended vaccination site hours, and appointment-free options, we are closing in on the end of this pandemic.

Last week, Angelenos 12 to 15 years old became eligible for the vaccine. As of today, nine City sites are now operating Monday to Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Angelenos can choose from any of the three vaccines currently available: Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson. No appointment is required but Angelenos can still pre-register for their vaccine and find a location near them by visiting Coronavirus.LACity.org/GetVaccinated.

All Angelenos under the age of 18 who get vaccinated at any City site must bring this form signed by a parent or legal guardian. Those ages 12-15 who cannot visit with their parent or legal guardian must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

The fight against COVID-19 is not yet over. Only 43.5% of L.A. County residents are fully vaccinated. Let’s get vaccinated to keep up our momentum toward reopening more of our economy and spending more time outdoors and indoors with our friends and family.

For those who received the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, please make sure to get your second dose. This is the only way to become fully vaccinated and protect ourselves and the people we love.

If you’re already fully vaccinated, encourage your friends, family members, and neighbors to get their shots too. It’s safe. It’s easy. It’s effective, and it’s free. Let’s get this done.

Here are the facts you need to know:

  • ELIGIBLE NOW: All Angelenos 12 and older are eligible to receive their vaccine at City sites. Eligible Angelenos can pre-register for a vaccination or find the nearest location. Please note that only the Pfizer vaccine is authorized for those 12 years and older, while the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are authorized for those 18 years and older.
  • ‘MOVE’ MOBILE VACCINE PROGRAM: We’re still vaccinating Angelenos in our hardest-hit neighborhoods through our MOVE vaccination program. Since launching this initiative, we’ve delivered over 111,719 doses to Angelenos, with over 91% given to people of color. These sites are offering the vaccine Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. - 2:45 p.m. appointment-free. These mobile sites visit new areas of our city weekly. You can find the latest information plus locations and hours on our website.

  • BY THE NUMBERS: The City of Los Angeles has administered 1,294,249 vaccine doses at our City-run vaccination sites and mobile clinics, skilled nursing facilities, and fire stations. Since last Monday, our centers have provided 39,268 life-saving vaccinations.
