The city of West Hollywood is getting the word out that there is ample supply of vaccines in the Los Angeles County region to prevent against COVID-19 disease. Getting vaccinated is the single most effective way to protect against illness and community spread of the coronavirus and is the most important step in getting back to normal.
The latest data from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health indicates that as of May 23, more than two-thirds of West Hollywood residents, 68.2% or 23,394 people, have received at least one dose of vaccine.
As a destination for dining, nightlife and entertainment, the city amplifies its vaccination message to those throughout the region and the state. The more people who get vaccinated, the safer everyone will become as new COVID-19 variants emerge and as the economy continues to open across sectors.
“We’re finally at a stage of the pandemic where there’s a good supply of vaccine availability,” West Hollywood Mayor Lindsey Horvath said. “Getting back to normal means we must all do our part to get vaccinated and to encourage people we know to get vaccinated. No matter which vaccine you choose, please get vaccinated.”
Health officials urge all people to get vaccinated, and people ages 12 and older are now eligible to receive a vaccine. Visit vaccinatelacounty.com to sign up for a vaccination appointment. For people without access to a computer or the internet, or people with disabilities, an L.A. County call center is open daily from 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. to help schedule appointments at (833)540-0473.
