Also this week, the city will open a new vaccination site at Los Angeles Southwest College and add one mobile clinic to its citywide rotation.
“With eligibility expanding and our vaccine supply growing, our City continues to work around-the-clock to get Angelenos vaccinated as swiftly and safely as possible,” said Mayor Garcetti.
“Every time an Angeleno does their part and gets vaccinated, that’s a step
forward for their health and for the lives of their loved ones — and a critical step toward ending this pandemic, returning to the embrace of family and friends, and revitalizing our economy.”
The city is expected to receive 50,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine, 36,000 of Johnson and Johnson’s Janssen vaccine, and 20,000 of the Pfizer vaccine.READ MORE: Lakers To Welcome Back Fans At Staples Center Thursday
