A record number of shots were administered as part of Councilmember Curren Price’s COVID-19 mobile vaccination clinics at South Park Recreation Center during the week of March 1.
Since February, the CD 9 grassroots campaign has been responsible for vaccinating thousands of eligible local neighbors from South Los Angeles. Earlier this week, the opportunity expanded to individuals working in education, childcare, emergency services, food and agriculture, as well as seniors aged 65 and older and healthcare workers who were already allowed to sign up.
“We are beginning to see the light of what was once a very dark tunnel. People are beginning to get vaccinated in record numbers and all of the efforts the community has put forward to stay safe is starting to pay off,” added Councilmember Price. “Getting the vaccination will put us closer to the finish line with the pandemic.”
The District 9 COVID-19 mobile vaccination program, in partnership with CORE (Community Organized Relief Effort) and the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD), continues tomorrow, Saturday, March 6 at South Park Recreation Center from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Walk ups will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis from 12-3 p.m.
Another pop up is scheduled from March 9 to March 13 at Green Meadows Recreation Center. Details below. You can schedule an appointment or request a ride (must reside in District 9) for the coming week by contacting Councilmember Price’s District Office at (323) 846-2651.
