Dodger Stadium, which is operating as one of L.A.’s largest coronavirus vaccination sites, was shut down for about an hour on Saturday afternoon when a crowd of approximately 50 people blocked the entrance.

L.A. County Supervisor Hilda Solis called the protest an “intentional sabotage of an effort to keep our community healthy.”

Individuals who were already inside the stadium gates when the protest began were able to get their shots in a timely manner. Those who were still outside the gates were forced to wait for their vaccines until the demonstrators were moved to the sidewalk.

A Facebook post made by the group Shop Mask Free Los Angeles described the demonstration as an “all things COVID protest/march.”
