GUIDE: How and where to get your COVID-19 vaccine in SoCal


Beginning this week, anyone 16 and older living in Los Angeles County can be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Starting April 15, any Californian 16 and older will be allowed to get a COVID-19 vaccination. But, Wednesday, the governor’s Office of Emergency Services said that due to an excess in supplies, starting Thursday, any adult who wants a shot over the next four days, can get one at Cal State Los Angeles.

The Cal State LA mass vaccination site will allow any adult the opportunity to wait in line for a COVID-19 vaccine between Thursday and the end of day on Sunday.

Most California counties are currently vaccinating people in these groups:

Healthcare workers
Long-term care facility residents
Anyone age 65 and older
Teachers and childcare workers
Emergency medical services
Food and agriculture workers
Those ages 16 to 64 with underlying health conditions

The COVID-19 vaccine is now available in more than 600 CVS in-store pharmacies at Target stores across 17 states, including California. Target announced the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines March 10 saying it would also make its fitting rooms at select stores available to CVS for appointments, which are booked through the drug store chain. The retailer closed fitting rooms in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic.

California is making it easier for people to get the COVID-19 vaccine by volunteering at COVID-19 vaccine clinics.
