Los Angeles County has announced today that all healthcare industry workers can now receive vaccinations, including staffers at urgent and primary care clinics, research laboratories, pharmacies and dentist offices. This is the first major expansion of the vaccine eligibility list.
The county plans to vaccinate 500,000 more healthcare workers by the end of the month. To handle the surge, officials this week announced five additional vaccine distribution sites across the county would be opening, starting Jan. 19. Los Angeles said Sunday that Dodger Stadium, would also be open for vaccinations.
“We anticipate, at minimum, every site will be open seven days a week and has the capacity to vaccinate 4,000 to 5,000 people each day,” L.A. County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said.
The state is in Phase 1a, which includes vaccine distribution to health care workers fighting COVID-19 and long term care staff and residents.
