Vax Facts from the Mayor

Here are the facts you need to know:

NOTIFY LA: The City has also sent targeted text updates to communities with high cases of COVID-19. In just the first three weeks of these joint vaccine equity efforts, appointments booked by Black Angelenos increased by nearly a third. To receive text updates, sign up for Notify LA.

'MOVE' VACCINE EQUITY PROGRAM: Our new MOVE initiative is deploying mobile vaccination clinics to the most vulnerable parts of Los Angeles. So far, mobile teams have administered over 4,647 doses across sites in South and East L.A., and each clinic has the capacity to vaccinate 200 people per day. This week, MOVE will expand operations to include two additional mobile teams -- and we will administer doses across locations in Vermont Square, Pico-Union, Chinatown, Van Nuys, and Boyle Heights.

VACCINE ACCESS FOR ALL ABILITIES: This week we're opening an express lane at Dodger Stadium for customers of Access Services, the agency that provides transportation to Angelenos with disabilities. Access riders can book their vaccination appointment pending availability and a round-trip ride to Dodger Stadium by calling (626) 532-1616.

BY THE NUMBERS: The City of Los Angeles has administered 349,156 vaccine doses at our six City-run vaccination sites, skilled nursing facilities, and fire stations. Since last Monday, our centers have provided 40,107 life-saving vaccinations despite supply and weather challenges.
