COVID Vaccines Open to All LA County Residents 16+ Starting Tuesday

The city of L.A. has expanded vaccine eligibility for those 16 and older.

"Opening vaccine eligibility to all Angelenos who are 16 and older is a major milestone in our efforts to get more shots into more arms and defeat COVID-19 once and for all," Mayor Garcetti said.

"We urge patience as we continue to ramp up our operations, obtain more doses, and enter this new phase of our campaign to end the pandemic. But our commitment remains clear: as soon as vaccines are available, we are ready to administer them swiftly and safely."

The Pfizer vaccine is the only vaccine that is currently approved for people ages 16 and 17.
