The City of Los Angeles expands vaccination appointments ahead of schedule.
L.A. residents who are 16 and older won’t have to wait until April 15 to book the first dose of the vaccine. City officials made the announcement five days ahead of schedule, allowing anyone who meets the criteria to make an appointment through the online platform for the Pfizer vaccine. Meanwhile, the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are currently only available for those 18 and older.
Councilmember Mike Bonin made the announcement through Twitter over the weekend.
