Anyone age 12 and older living or working in L.A. County can get vaccinated against COVID-19. Vaccinations are always free and open to eligible residents and workers regardless of immigration status.
Public Health’s in-home vaccination program offers home visits to provide vaccines to those unable to leave their homes. L.A. County has so far vaccinated 2,000 homebound residents through this program to date, and the County is also offering additional doses for immunocompromised residents through this program. Residents who are homebound can refer themselves to this program. Caregivers, family members, healthcare providers, organizations and others can also make referrals. On the vaccine website, residents who are homebound can click “In-home vaccination” in the menu to submit a request, or call (833) 540-0473 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. seven days a week. Public Health is able to take calls in multiple languages.
