LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Getting a COVID-19 vaccination will be even easier than checking out a library book.
The Los Angeles County Library will soon offer COVID-19 vaccine clinics for everyone 12 years and older at 13 community libraries through Aug. 4. Each site will offer the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, and follow-up appointments for the second dose will be scheduled three weeks after the initial dose.READ MORE: Man Shot While Riding Bicycle In Santa Clarita

“Partnering with trusted community spaces such as our LA County Libraries will provide residents with a safe, familiar place to receive the vaccine, including residents living in our hardest-hit communities,” Dr. Barbara Ferrer, the county’s Director of Public Health, said in a statement.MORE NEWS: Troy Terry Scores Team-Leading 23rd Goal, Ducks Beat Bruins 5-3
