During the week of March 22, Smokey Robinson stopped by the mobile COVID-19 vaccination unit at South Park Recreation Center to receive his vaccine. The legendary singer, songwriter and record producer joins thousands of Angelenos that have been vaccinated against the coronavirus at pop-ups across District 9 parks.
A targeted approach is being led by Councilmember Curren Price as part of ongoing efforts to bring vaccines directly into South LA neighborhoods via pop-ups and vaccination sites like one at USC.
“Reaching out to our faith based organizations, local non profits, community leaders and neighbors, we have made it our mission to hit the pavement, knock on doors, make calls and help get the word out about the many ways that residents of South LA can get their shot,” added Councilmember Price. “But we’re not done yet and we’ll be looking to expand our outreach to include vaccination sites at churches and other local establishments.”
Since February, the Councilmember has helped organize vaccination clinics in his District with Team Price scheduling appointments for eligible individuals and offering transportation for neighbors. As part of a grassroots campaign, Councilmember Price has developed partnerships with senior housing facilities, public housing communities, restaurants, grocery stores, churches and others to get people who live and work in the District vaccinated.
For more information on the local opportunities, and to determine eligibility, please contact Councilman Price’s District Office at (323) 846-2651.
LOOKING AHEAD: MARCH 30-APRIL 3
