Los Angeles County is moving swiftly to expand COVID-19 vaccination availability to people 65 and older, under an Executive Order signed Monday, Jan. 18 by Board of Supervisors Chair Hilda L. Solis. The order notes that “people 65 years and older have suffered disproportionately from severe disease following infection from COVID-19 and are at higher risk of hospitalization and dying from the virus.” People 65 and older will be eligible to start scheduling vaccination appointments beginning Tuesday, January 19. They will be eligible to receive the vaccination beginning Wednesday, January 20, along with frontline healthcare workers and residents and staff at skilled nursing and long-term care facilities. The vaccine supply is still extremely limited, and Los Angeles County continues to urge patience as we work urgently with our federal and state partners to expand capacity and supply in the weeks ahead.
