UPDATE Wednesday, 6:30 p.m: City Of LA Says Vaccination Sites Will Temporarily Close Because First Doses Are Low

Most of us know by now that the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines require two doses, either three or four weeks apart, depending on which one you get.

This week, L.A. County is prioritizing those second doses, which means all appointments at the county's mega vaccination sites, like the Forum and Magic Mountain, are reserved for second dose appointments only.

Today, though, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that the city of L.A., which runs its own vaccination sites (Dodger Stadium is one of them), announced it has appointments available for first doses this week.

A spokeswoman for Mayor Eric Garcetti's office says they're not sure how long those first dose appointments will be available... but if you're in an eligible group and haven't been able to get an appointment yet, it's worth a try.
