In LA County, all healthcare workers (HCW) in Phase 1A are eligible for vaccination. Phase 1A is for all HCWs who have direct or indirect exposure to patients or infectious materials.
To bolster vaccination efforts, LAC DPH is providing vaccination in five large point of dispensing (POD) sites every day from January 19 to February 14. Additional dates may be added as needed. Healthcare workers must make an appointment in advance through the Vaccination for Healthcare Workers website and bring the required identification. Visit the website for more information and to access appointments to be vaccinated at a POD or by one of our community partners.
Please note: Healthcare workers without routine in-person patient contact (e.g. administrative support staff or those exclusively teleworking) will be offered vaccination in Phase 1B. Family and household members of Phase 1A HCWs are not included in Phase 1A. The Vaccine Prioritization & Allocation webpage shows the current phases and tiers including an estimated timeline for each phase.
