Long Beach, CA - Beginning today, May 24, the City of Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services will open an evening COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the Long Beach City College Pacific Coast Campus (PCC), on weekdays.

“Expanding vaccine availability to the evening hours makes getting the vaccine easier than ever,” said Mayor Robert Garcia. “We will continue to bring new clinics with different operating hours into the community.”

The vaccination clinic will take place from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays in Parking Lot One on the corner of Orange Avenue and Pacific Coast Highway. It will have the capacity to provide approximately 300 people with vaccines each day and will carry the two-dose Pfizer and Moderna vaccines as well as the single-dose Janssen/Johnson and Johnson. Vaccines will be available via walk-up or appointment. In the event that more people visit the clinic than the site has vaccine for on a given day, people will be provided with information on alternative mobile vaccination sites or offered a future appointment. Minors must submit a signed consent form or their parent/guardian must give verbal consent order to receive the vaccine.

“We continue to identify more ways to make vaccine accessible to everyone,” said Kelly Colopy, Director of the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services. “We hope this opportunity, in addition to our other neighborhood sites and our incentive program, will encourage more people to get vaccinated.”

Other locations where people can be vaccinated by the City include:

  • Long Beach Convention Center, located at 300 E. Ocean Blvd., Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursdays from 11 a.m.  to 6 p.m.; and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Mobile Community Clinics at Admiral KiddMacArthur and Houghton Parks
  • Mobile Vaccination Vehicles for homebound individuals and people in hard-hit neighborhoods

People also can be vaccinated by their healthcare provider or book appointments in Long Beach and beyond by visiting My Turn, the State’s online COVID-19 vaccine notification and appointment system, or by calling 833.422.4255.
