Today is THE DAY: All 16+ Californians now vaccine eligible on MyTurn

Release Date: 2021-04-15

This is a big day for California — and for Long Beach.

Today marks the first day that all Californians ages 16+ are vaccine eligible across the state. We have been waiting for this day since the start of this pandemic, and it’s finally here.

If you have not already received your first dose and are at least 16 years old, visit MyTurn.ca.gov to sign up and book an appointment. It’s super easy. We are on our way to the end of this pandemic, and with every new vaccinated person, we get one step closer to that goal. Ultimately, it is up to each of us to do our part.

We are also continuing to take non-appointment walk-ups at the Convention Center for Long Beach residents from Monday through Saturday. These are first-come, first-serve and if we run out of supply at the walk-up site we will schedule you an appointment.

In Long Beach, we have been leading the way for the state. To date, we have vaccinated more than 48% of our city's eligible population and around 90% of our seniors, but there is still more to do.

Protect your friends. Protect your family. Protect your neighbors by getting vaccinated today. If you have questions, email us at COVID19vaccine@longbeach.gov or call 562-570-INFO.

Thank you and let's do this, Long Beach.

Mayor Robert Garcia
