Space is limited but will grow as the County obtains more vaccine doses, so please be patient. The County has committed to eventually getting a vaccine to every person who wants one.
VACCINE PHASES AND TIERS IN LA COUNTY (AS OF FEB. 1, 2021)
Vaccine supply is still extremely limited. Please be patient as the County works urgently with federal and state partners to expand capacity and supply in the weeks ahead.
In LA County, the following groups are now being actively vaccinated:
- Healthcare workers (HCWs) at high and moderate risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus through their work in any role in health care or long-term care settings. High and moderate risk means the HCW has direct or indirect contact with patients or infectious materials (Phase 1A)
- Long-term care facility residents (Phase 1A)
- Persons age 65 and over (Phase 1B Tier 1)
- Note: Low risk healthcare workers such as administrative support staff without routine in-person patient contact will be offered vaccination in Phase 1B Tier 2. Veterinary Medical Personnel will be offered vaccination in Phase 1B.
- You can make an appointment to be vaccinated if you are in are in one of the groups listed. DO NOT REGISTER FOR AN APPOINTMENT IF YOU ARE NOT IN AN ELIGIBLE GROUP. Doing so will take an appointment slot away from those at highest risk and you will be turned away without proper documentation of your eligibility.

Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Coronavirus Vaccine Distribution Information
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has posted information about the coronavirus vaccine and vaccination plans to offer guidance and clarity to the general public at VaccinateLACounty.com. The webpage includes:
Who Will Get the Vaccine and When
The Vaccine Distribution page describes the phases and tiers of vaccination, with more information about how these phases may roll out. This page is being updated regularly as the groups within each phase and tier are further refined, so check back frequently.
How the Phases and Tiers Were Determined
Vaccine eligibility is determined by phases of prioritization developed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) through the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), as well as guidance developed by the State via the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). This planning is occurring in close coordination with state and local health departments to ensure appropriate planning and collaboration with community partners. Allocation policies will be dynamic and will be adapted based on vaccine performance, vaccine supply and demand, and other factors.
No one will have to pay for the vaccine. A doctor or pharmacy may charge a fee for giving the vaccine, but it should be covered by public and private insurance companies. People without health insurance can get COVID-19 vaccines at no cost. There are no out-of-pocket payments.
To support local planning processes, the County has established a COVID-19 Vaccine Work Group, comprised of approximately 100 individuals representing more than 60 organizations, with committees focused on ensuring equitable distribution of the vaccine, establishing effective communications, and aligning resources.
Healthcare professionals wanting to receive the vaccine and facilities wanting to administer the vaccine should visit the COVID-19 Vaccine Healthcare Provider Information Hub.
Vaccine Distribution in the City of Malibu
The City has created a dedicated webpage for coronavirus vaccination information at MalibuCity.org/Vaccine. The City of Malibu is in active conversations with local medical providers to prepare for and support a mass vaccination site if needed. Whether a site is needed depends on how many doses the local medical providers receive. If they only receive a small number of doses that is manageable to administer in their offices, then that is how it will be done. However, if the number of doses is too large to effectively administer through their offices, then a mass vaccination site will be established. City Council has already approved using City Hall as a vaccination site, and City Hall has been used numerous for drive-through COVID-19 testing service. Local medical providers are not expected to receive the vaccine until late January or early February.
