CURRENT INITIATIVES AND UPDATES
Public Health Strongly Encourages Expecting and New Moms to Get Vaccinated - The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health), along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is strongly encouraging COVID-19 vaccination for all women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant now, or might become pregnant in the future to prevent severe illness, death and adverse pregnancy outcomes from COVID-19. While studies have affirmed the vaccines’ safety in all stages of pregnancy and the vaccines do not cause any fertility problems, the CDC reports as of September 18, only 31% of pregnant women are fully vaccinated nationwide. For more information, please view the press release.
Booster Shots Available to Eligible Residents – The CDC strongly recommends getting a booster shot of the vaccine. Los Angeles County residents can begin receiving their booster doses at any of the hundreds of sites offering vaccines. To find a vaccination site, please visit www.VaccinateLACounty.com.
The CDC now recommends getting a booster 6 months after completing your primary COVID-19 vaccination series if you received Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, and 2 months after, if you received a Johnson & Johnson (Jansen) vaccination. If you received your vaccinations at our City organized clinics, you are now eligible! If you need your booster, or if you still need your first dose, we have an upcoming clinic for you! Boosters and first shots will be available as well as all vaccine types. Here is the list of vaccines available and the age at which it is recommended to receive them:
Moderna Booster (18+)
Pfizer Peds (5-11)

Getting flu immunizations is especially important this year because a major flu outbreak during the COVID-19 pandemic would put an enormous strain on our already-impacted medical system.
To find a flu immunization near you, call your doctor, your local pharmacy, or go to www.vaccinefinder.org. To find a flu immunization at low cost or free, call 2-1-1, visit a Los Angeles County Public Health Clinic or a Seasonal Outreach Clinic. More information is available here.
Los Angeles County Health Officer Order Update - Public Health has modified the Health Officer Order requiring customers and employees at bars, breweries, wineries, nightclubs, and lounges to have at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by October 7 and both doses by November 4, 2021. Vaccine verification or a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours will also be required for those attending outdoor mega events (10,000 persons or more). Attendees at indoor mega events are already required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test results prior to entry.
