LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Los Angeles City Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez announced Monday that three COVID-19 vaccination pop-up sites will cater to residents in the northeast San Fernando Valley over the next three weeks, starting Tuesday.
The sites will be available to eligible residents, including people over the age of 65, food service workers, farmworkers, animal agriculture workers, emergency services workers, education and childcare workers, healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities.
Appointments must be made in advance and people getting vaccinated should bring identification to prove that they are a Council District 7 resident, which includes Pacoima, Sylmar, North Hills, Mission Hills, Lakeview Terrace, Sunland, Tujunga and Shadow Hills.
The pop-up sites will be located at:
- Valley Crossroads Seventh Day Adventist at 11350 Glenoaks Blvd. in Pacoima from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday (make an appointment by calling 818-485-0600);

It’s unclear exactly how many doses will be on hand at each location.
Beginning Monday, teachers and food and agriculture workers were among an estimated 1.2 million Los Angeles County residents now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
Also Monday, LAUSD opened a large-scale vaccination site at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood dedicated for teachers and education employees.
