In an effort to save lives in one of the areas hardest hit by the public health emergency, Councilman Curren Price partnered with the Los Angeles City Fire Department (LAFD) and CORE (Community Organized Relief Effort) as part of a weeklong effort that will provide hundreds of COVID-19 vaccines to District 9 senior citizens at South Park.

The mobile clinic, the first for District 9 neighbors, has the capacity to administer 800 Pfizer vaccines to individuals from the community aged 65 and older, as well as local healthcare workers, beginning Tuesday, Feb. 9 through Friday, Feb.12 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. The local initiative is part of a grassroots campaign led by Councilman Price, which includes a cross collaboration with local senior housing facilities, public housing communities, churches and nonprofit organizations from South LA.

Councilman Price also enlisted the assistance of private buses, as well as City vans to provide transportation for the seniors that needed a ride to the park. Pre-registration is required and local residents can do so by calling Councilmember Price’s District Office at (323) 846-2651 to schedule an appointment. COVID-19 testing will be provided concurrently on a walk-up basis.
