Aquarium Vax Event on Thursday & More

Release Date: 2021-06-15

Getting a vaccine has never been easier in Long Beach.

Our community has been doing a great job at getting their vaccinations, and to date, nearly 67% of our adult population has received a vaccine. The national goal is to hit 70% by July 4, and we are working hard to hit that target in the weeks ahead. This week, on June 17, our Health Department will host "Sharks for Shots" at the Aquarium of the Pacific where folks will receive free admission when they receive their first vaccine shot. 

Here is a full list of all the places you, your family, and friends can get vaccinated this week:

  • Event: "Sharks for Shots" at Aquarium of the Pacific
