Long Beach residents 16+ can now get vaccinated

Release Date: 2021-04-08

We have exciting news to share. Over 43% of eligible adults are now vaccinated in Long Beach -- that means we can start vaccinating all residents age 16 and over TODAY. With this move, Long Beach once again sets the pace for the State of California and I am so proud of the successful vaccination program we have here in our city.

All Long Beach residents 16 and over are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine without an appointment. You will not see the option to book an appointment online through My Turn until April 15, once the State officially opens up the 16-49 age group category statewide.

If you still need a vaccine, please visit the Long Beach Convention Center’s walk-up vaccination site from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Individuals must be able to prove they meet our eligibility requirements. Information on documentation can be found at longbeach.gov/VaxLB.

Approximately 500 vaccinations will be administered each day. Once our community has used up the vaccine supply for that day, all additional walk-ups will be offered an opportunity to schedule a future appointment. Please follow signs placed at the Convention Center to be directed to the walk-up vaccination site, which is ADA accessible.

We are making great progress on vaccinations. To our heroic health care workers, thank you again for all they are doing to make this happen. To our community, please encourage those you know to get vaccinated. Each vaccine is critical to keeping the person who is vaccinated safe from COVID-19, and also our greater community.

Thank you and stay safe, 

Mayor Robert Garcia
