Los Angeles County Administers Boosters to Residents - 15 New Deaths and 1,227 New Confirmed Cases of COVID-19 in Los Angeles County

Los Angeles County is now administering boosters for all three FDA-approved vaccines; Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson. In addition to the already approved Pfizer vaccine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director, Rochelle P. Walensky, endorsed the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommendation for a booster dose of the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.

Los Angeles County residents eligible for a booster dose of Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine include those who received the second of the two-dose vaccine series at least 6 months ago and are either:

For people who received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, booster shots are also recommended for everyone who was vaccinated two or more months ago.

All eligible individuals are allowed to choose a different brand from their original vaccine as a booster.

Public Health estimates that 1.7 million residents in L.A. County received their second dose of Pfizer at least 6 months ago, 1.5 million received their two Moderna doses at least 6 months ago, and 470,000 residents received their Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago.

Residents can make an appointment for their booster by using MyTurn.CA.gov or the County website at VaccinateLACounty.com and for more information about booster shots. Additionally, many pharmacies and clinics countywide may be accepting appointments through their own systems.

Residents should bring proof of their primary vaccine series, such as the white vaccination card, a photo of the white vaccination card, or a digital record. At many sites, residents may be asked to sign an attestation form indicating they meet the criteria to receive the booster if they don’t have proof of vaccination.

If you need a ride to get your vaccination, you can reach out to the Public Health call center at 1-833-540-0473 and you will be connected to free transportation.

Today, Public Health confirms 15 new deaths and 1,227 new cases of COVID-19. Of the 15 new deaths reported today, five people who passed away were over the age of 80, five people who died were between the ages of 65 and 79, three people who died were between the ages of 50 and 64 and two people who died were between the ages of 30 and 49. To date, Public Health has identified 1,483,031 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of L.A. County and a total of 26,513 deaths.

There are 598 people with COVID-19 currently hospitalized, and 31% of these people are in the ICU. This is the first time daily hospitalizations dropped under 600 since July.

Testing results are available for nearly 8,960,000 individuals with 15% of people testing positive. Today’s test positivity rate is 0.9%.

"We send our deepest sympathies to everyone who has lost a loved one or a friend to COVID-19,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “While we continue prioritizing getting unvaccinated people vaccinated against COVID-19, we encourage everyone who is eligible to enhance their immunity by getting a booster dose. It is important that those at high risk because of their age, underlying health conditions, or occupational setting, get their booster dose, and we’re encouraging people that fall into these higher-risk categories, to please make sure you are getting your boosters well before the holidays.”

Visit: www.VaccinateLACounty.com (English) and www.VacunateLosAngeles.com (Spanish) to find a vaccination site near you, make an appointment at vaccination sites, and much more. If you don’t have internet access, can’t use a computer, or you’re over 65, you can call 1-833-540-0473 for help finding an appointment, connecting to free transportation to and from a vaccination site, or scheduling a home-visit if you are homebound.

Vaccinated middle and high school students are eligible for free UCLA football tickets. UCLA has partnered with Public Health to give away free tickets to a UCLA football game at the Rose Bowl to middle or high school students in L.A. County who’ve received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, while tickets last. Students aged 12 to 18 who’ve received at least one dose can sign up for the free tickets online by visiting: http://ph.lacounty.gov/DPHUCLAVaxforTix.
