80% of Long Beach Adults Vaccinated

Release Date: 2021-10-08

We hit a major milestone today with 80% of adults in Long Beach vaccinated against COVID-19. This accomplishment is thanks to the efforts of our dedicated Health Department, community medical partners and everyone who has made it a priority to get vaccinated. Having 80% of adults in our city vaccinated is a huge success for the health of our community, and it is a major step towards ending this pandemic once and for all. 

Last week, the City of Long Beach also joined organizations across the region and the state in requiring proof of full vaccination for our employees. This policy will help to keep our city workers and the community we serve safe. Long Beach has also implemented a vaccination requirement to enter indoor bars and nightclubs as we continue to encourage vaccinations for every eligible member of our community.

Being fully vaccinated is safe, effective and the best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19, including its variants. As we continue our work to provide first doses to community members, Long Beach is also making Pfizer boosters available to individuals over 65 and in certain high-risk professions. Those receiving their booster must have gotten their second Pfizer dose at least 6 months ago.

Thank you and Go Long Beach,

Mayor Robert Garcia
