All city-run drive-thru, walk-up and mobile locations are now offering the vaccine appointment-free.
On Sunday, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that all City-run vaccination sites are appointment-free starting Monday, May 10.
“We stand at a critical juncture in our fight to end this pandemic, and our City will keep doing everything possible to knock down barriers to vaccine access and deliver doses directly to all Angelenos,” Garcetti said in a statement.
In addition to that, two new sites will be opened and night clinics will be open at Pierce College (8 am-8 pm), L.A. Southwest College (8 am-8 pm), Green Meadows Rec Center, South L.A. (9 am-9 pm). This change was made after majority of the vaccines were administered after 2 pm during the first week of night clinics, Garcetti officials said.
STARTING TODAY: Appointment-free vaccinations will be available at all of our City-run sites & our night clinics will be open at:
📍Pierce College (8am-8pm)
📍L.A. Southwest College (8am-8pm)
