LAFC wants to help thousands of soccer fans and Angelenos get their COVID-19 vaccine. The team is partnering with the LA County Public Health Department to host a vaccination clinic today and tomorrow at Banc of California Stadium.

About 9,000 doses of the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be available. You can make an appointment online but walk-ins are also welcome.

Larry Freedman, the LAFC co-president and chief business officer, says he knows fans want to return to the experience of watching their team in-person and vaccinations will make that return possible:

"When Bank of California Stadium is full, LAFC is playing the beautiful game in a beautiful way and we're having that shared experience in a community that we've all built together."

LAFC will also have vaccine-only sections at the stadium for upcoming matches. (Dodger Stadium also has vaccine-only sections with some rules.)
