COVID-19 VACCINATION EFFORTS IN LA COUNTY (as of 1/13/21)

Please visit www.VaccinateLACounty.com and LA County’s COVID-19 VACCINE webpage for the general public for details regarding the COVID-19 Vaccine.

Timing for the Vaccine | LA County’s Vaccine Distribution page describes the phases and tiers of vaccination, with more information about how these phases may roll out. Green circles show groups of people who have been, or are being, offered vaccine. Red circles show groups who are waiting to be offered vaccine.

  • – How the phases and tiers were determined: Vaccine eligibility is determined by phases of prioritization developed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) through the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), as well as guidance developed by the State of California via the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). This planning is occurring in coordination with state and local health departments to ensure appropriate planning and collaboration with community partners. Allocation policies will be updated based on vaccine performance, vaccine supply and demand, and other factors.
  • – Where we are currently: LA County is currently administering vaccines in Phase 1A, Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3. Phase 1A focuses on vaccinating frontline health care workers and residents of long-term care facilities, in alignment with the recommendations of the ACIP based on risks of exposure and risks for severe illness. It is estimated that everyone in Phase 1A will have been offered at least one dose of vaccine by late January/early February. Please note that timings are estimates and may change according to factors such as vaccine supply and the state prioritization requirements. The phases and tiers will overlap.
  • – What future phases will look like: Phase 1B vaccination efforts will focus on vaccinating persons aged ≥75 years and frontline essential workers and Phase 1C will focus on vaccinating persons aged 65–74 years, persons aged 16–64 years with high-risk medical conditions, and other essential workers. Please note that current Phase 1B and 1C distribution is based on CDC guidance and may be changed or updated by CDPH. The Vaccine Distribution page will remain updated to reflect any developments.
