los angeles, vaccine, covid

As of April 15th, Los Angeles moves out of Phase 1A and 1B, allowing all residents ages 16+ to be vaccinated. 

Residents can check the website below for locations to sign up for their Moderna or Pfizer vaccine. As of Tuesday, April 13, Los Angeles will temporarily stop administering the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine — a move federal health officials had recommended Tuesday morning following reports of six serious blood clots.

The pause will remain in place at all vaccination sites in the city until further notice.

Mayor Eric Garcetti said in a statement, "Following guidance from public health officials, City-run vaccination sites have paused use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. This impacts about 3,000 scheduled vaccinations today. All appointments at our permanent sites will happen as planned, and the City's MOVE clinics will honor the appointments for anyone scheduled to receive the Johnson & Johnson vaccine with a first dose of Pfizer, as we await further information from health officials. This week, the City received nearly 60,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine and 56,000 of Pfizer, neither of which is affected by this pause. 

All COVID-19 vaccines are helping to stop the spread of the virus. We continue to encourage eligible Angelenos to get vaccinated so we can end the pandemic as soon as possible."

Residents with disabilities or without computer access can call 833-540-0473 between 8:00 am and 8:30 pm 7 days a week for assistance with appointments.

As of April 6th, 4,913,321 LA County residents had received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccination. 1,746,103 people received their second dose.
