Hahn Urges LA County to Immediately Begin Vaccinating Residents 65+

Los Angeles, CA — Seeking to support the County’s efforts to address the COVID-19 pandemic and the tragic impact on its residents, Supervisors  Janice Hahn and Kathryn Barger are calling for additional flexibility in vaccinating as many residents as possible and a process to begin vaccinating those 65 and older.

“Governor Newsom has encouraged all counties to open up vaccination appointments to residents 65 and older so that we can protect our residents who are most vulnerable to this virus,” said Supervisor Hahn. “L.A. County needs to follow the State’s lead without further delay.”

“Efficient and effective distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine to our residents and communities is the most critical hurdle in our ability to recover from this virus,” said Supervisor Barger. “While we continue to prioritize the vaccination of healthcare workers who have been on the frontlines caring for our vulnerable residents, we must add flexibility to this process and begin efforts to vaccinate those 65 and older."
