The First LAUSD Vaccination Site Opened Today
The L.A. Unified School District and its teachers' union say educators and staff should be vaccinated against COVID-19 before in-class instruction resumes.
How will that get done? A few gears are already moving.
The district's first school-based vaccination center opened this morning in downtown L.A. at the Roybal Learning Center.
Shots are still limited to the current tier of recipients — health care workers and people over 65. But school nurses and the infrastructure are in place, in anticipation of eligibility expanding to teachers in March.
LAUSD also has a new collaboration with the Los Angeles Rams, Hollywood Park, Anthem Blue Cross and Cedars-Sinai on a large-scale operation on the grounds of SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, that could serve any public or private school staffer seeking innoculation.
Today's announcement describes it as a "dedicated vaccination site and comprehensive effort for the education community." The district is still seeking county approval.
