Vaccine Information and Updates
Some groups in Los Angeles County are already being vaccinated. These groups include staff who work in acute care hospitals, residents and staff at Skilled Nursing Facilities, and emergency medical technicians and paramedics.
That said, both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have been shown to be safe and very effective in preventing COVID-19 cases 95% of the time in large studies that involved a diverse mix of people. While the vaccine stops people from getting sick, however, it is not yet clear if it stops them from spreading COVID-19 to other people, nor is it yet known for how long they will be immune. So, everyone must still wear a face covering, physically distance, and not gather.
The COVID-19 vaccine will be free for everyone and will be offered to different groups in phases. It is also likely to be available to the general public in Spring/Summer 2021. Please talk to your doctor or sign up for email updates to find out when vaccines will be available to you.
As usually happens during a crisis, misinformation circulates and scammers are at work trying to cheat people out of their money. Please remember that 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.
