Super-Sized Food Vaccine Event

Release Date: 2021-02-25

I have some great vaccine and food news today. Next Friday, our Health Department will be holding a super-sized vaccine clinic at the Convention Center for Long Beach food and grocery workers. Over 3,000 restaurant workers, bodega and market employees, cooks, and anyone working directly in the food industry will be vaccinated on March 5.

We are contacting restaurants and markets directly to sign-up employees and pulling workers from our VaxLB system. We are making progress on getting all food workers vaccinated as we move closer to fully and safely re-opening this important part of our economy. Our food economy is critical to our success, and we are going to make sure it’s safe and workers are vaccinated.

Thank you and stay safe,

Mayor Robert Garcia
