18 Feb COVID-19 Vaccine
Vaccines made by Pfizer, Moderna, and Janssen/Johnson & Johnson (J&J) are now available in Los Angeles County. In large studies that involved a diverse mix of people, all 3 vaccines were shown to be safe and effective at preventing COVID-19 disease, including severe illness and death. In addition, there is early data showing that the vaccines may help keep people from spreading COVID-19. We’re still learning how effective the vaccines are against variants of the virus and how long protection lasts.
The COVID-19 vaccine is free for everyone, regardless of their immigration status. It is being offered to different groups in phases.
