The city is expected to receive 42,000 Moderna vaccines, 27,000 Pfizer vaccines and 22,000 Johnson & Johnson vaccines during the week, according to Mayor Eric Garcetti’s office.
A majority of the vaccines will be administered at Dodger Stadium, San Fernando Park, Hansen Dam, Crenshaw Christian Center, Lincoln Park, Pierce College and the University of Southern California’s University Park campus.
In accordance with state and county public health guidance, the city will offer vaccines to anyone over the age of 50 beginning Thursday.
“Every person who gets vaccinated is helping Los Angeles take one more critical step towards ending the pandemic,” Garcetti said. “The more vaccine supply we receive, the sooner we are able to get those doses into the arms of Angelenos safely and quickly. If you are 50 or older, this week it will be time for you to roll up your sleeve and get vaccinated, so we can get our lives back to normal.”READ MORE: Trader Joe's To Allow Fully-Vaccinated People To Shop Without A Mask
