Los Angeles County Vaccine Update; Culver City Has Good Numbers

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health recently reported that the City of Culver City has one of the lowest adjusted case rates in the County and one of the highest vaccination percentages in the County at 22.7%

Beginning this week, Los Angeles County began offering vaccines to education and childcare workers, workers in the food and agriculture sector, and emergency service workers. All eligible workers are now able to sign up for appointments at various community vaccine sites including pharmacies, health clinics, and City of LA vaccination sites listed on the Vaccinate LA County website.

Learn more about the different vaccination tiers and find out when it’s your turn to receive your free COVID-19 vaccination, by visiting the Vaccinate LA County website.

Registration is required for a vaccine appointment. Eligible LA County residents with internet access and a computer are urged to use the Vaccinate LA County website to reserve an appointment. For those without access to the internet, or with disabilities, a call center is open daily from 8 AM to 8:30 PM to help schedule appointments; dial (833) 540-0473 if you are in need of assistance. Please note that this phone line is reserved for people with disabilities or for those who don’t have internet access.

Per the State’s COVID-19 Vaccine Allocation Guidelines, beginning March 15, healthcare providers may use their clinical judgment to vaccinate individuals age 16 – 64 who are deemed to be at the very highest risk. View a list of high-risk conditions on the State’s Vaccine Plan webpage or register on the MyTurn website to be notified when you’re eligible to receive your vaccination.

COVID-19 vaccine remains limited in LA County. When Johnson & Johnson doses come into LA County, a vaccine that has shown to prevent COVID-19 related hospitalization and death, Public Health officials are hopeful this will improve vaccine supply. Los Angeles County continues work mitigating barriers and increasing access to vaccine to eligible residents and workers in the hardest hit communities.

Yesterday, the LA County Department of Public Health hosted a COVID-19 Vaccine Virtual Town Hall during which public health experts gave the latest updates on the vaccine and answered several questions from the community. Watch the Vaccine Town Hall meeting on YouTube now.
