All L.A. residents 65 and older are now eligible for the vaccine in L.A. County, joining healthcare workers, certain essential frontline workers, and residents and staff of skilled nursing facilities on the list of those who can currently get vaccinated. You don’t have to live in the city to come to one of our sites, and if you are a City of L.A. resident, you can go to any L.A. County site as well.

To book an appointment you must be in an eligible group, in accordance with County eligibility requirements. Upon arrival at any of the City’s vaccination sites, you will be required to verify your eligibility to receive a vaccine. 


The City, partnering with Carbon Health, has created a vaccination portal that allows Angelenos to book appointments at City vaccination sites, sign up for the notification list to receive text and email alerts when you or a family member becomes eligible, and learn more about the vaccine.

Additional sites operated by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and other providers may be available too. You can find more information about eligibility and vaccination sites at the link below.

The COVID-19 vaccine is being distributed in Los Angeles County in a fair and transparent way. If someone offers to sell you a chance to get vaccinated before it is your turn, it’s a scam.  If you get calls, texts, or emails about the vaccine where the caller asks for your personal or financial information, it's a scam.  NEVER share these numbers or other personal information with an unknown caller or in a text or email.
