A new free COVID-19 vaccination site opened up at Union Station in downtown L.A.

The site is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, no appointments are needed.

Stephanie Wiggins, the new CEO of Metro, says the Union Station location was chosen with convenience and equity in mind.

"Communities of color, older adults, and other underserved communities have borne a disproportionate burden of the effects of the pandemic, both from an economic standpoint and from a health standpoint, it doesn't have to be this way. It shouldn't be this way,” she said.
