LA COVID-19 Vaccination Sites Back in Business

Sites were closed after storms delayed vaccines

Los Angeles’ city-run COVID-19 vaccination sites reopened today following closures forced by bad weather across the country that delayed shipments of doses to the city.

Sites reopened at Dodger Stadium, Hansen Dam, San Fernando Park, Lincoln Park, Pierce College and Crenshaw Christian Center.

Anyone who received a first vaccine dose at a city-run site between Jan. 24 and Jan. 30 will be auto-booked for a second-dose appointment and receive a text message and email with appointment details from Carbon Health by Tuesday.

Those people were encouraged to check their Carbon account to ensure their contact information is correct.

All city vaccination sites were closed on Friday, Saturday and Monday. A shipment of 26,000 doses that was supposed to arrive a week ago got stuck in Kentucky due to bad weather, while another 37,000 doses set for use at vaccine sites this week got held up in Tennessee.

While the large-scale sites were closed, the city’s mobile vaccination efforts continued operating.

Los Angeles County officials said their vaccination sites were not impacted by the weather delays. County sites have been administering primarily second doses of the two-dose regimen.
