LB Residents 50+ now vaccine eligible

Release Date: 2021-03-25

Here’s some more great news. We just announced that effective immediately, our Health Department will begin vaccinating all Long Beach residents ages 50 years and older. We will be one of the first health jurisdictions in California to expand vaccine access to people in this age group.

For those who are in this age group and have previously signed up through our VaxLB system, our health team will contact you directly to schedule an appointment, or if you did not sign up for VaxLB, you may simply walk up to the Convention Center vaccination site between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., Monday through Saturday, no appointment needed.

The State MyTurn.ca.gov will not enable appointments for 50+ individuals until April 1, so please do not look for that option until that time. However, if you live in Long Beach, and are 50 years of age and over, we will take care of you now.

Individuals must be able to prove they meet the eligibility requirement and live in Long Beach. Proof of residency documentation could include a utility bill with their address or a driver’s license. More information on eligibility and documentation can be found at longbeach.gov/VaxLB.

If you have any questions or need clarification, please email covid19vaccine@longbeach.gov or call 562.570.4636 and our team will do our best to get back to you as soon as we are able.

Thank you and stay safe,

Mayor Robert Garcia
