Protesters shut down Dodger Stadium, hundreds of cars lined up
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA)-Saturday after demonstrators allegedly turned up at the entrance, the county’s large-scale COVID-19 vaccination site at Dodger Stadium was abruptly closed. As hundreds of cars waited in line, public safety officials were working to reopen the site in the afternoon.
“The Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department, Michel Moore, tweeted, “Working with our public safety partners to ensure anyone with an appointment gets their vaccine today.
Health officials said Saturday that for those who apply, COVID-19 vaccine appointments for next week are available in Los Angeles County.
For those looking for a second-dose appointment, officials said that email confirmations are being sent out.
“If you have not received an email yet, it will be sent soon,” the department tweeted. “We appreciate your patience.”
Health care staff, long-term care facility patients, and others aged 65 and over are those potentially qualified to get vaccinated in the county.
COVID-19 vaccine allocations appear to lag behind demand, with the county anticipating next week to receive approximately 188,000 doses. However, all of these would be required for people who have already earned the first dose of second shots to administer second shots.
