GUIDE: How to get your COVID-19 vaccine in SoCal


On March 1, those who work in food and agriculture, education and childcare, emergency and first responders will be eligible to be vaccinated from the coronavirus in Los Angeles County.

Initially, healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities were been given priority access to the vaccines, but on Jan. 13, Gov. Gavin Newsom opened up access to people 65 and older as well.

LA County officials say there are "dozens of documents" essential workers newly eligible for COVID-19 shots can show to prove their eligibility.

"We're going to be flexible," says Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer. "We don't want anybody who is an eligible worker not to be able to be vaccinated."
