Getting your flu shot should be part of everyone’s annual routine. But this year, it’s more important than ever. Anybody can –– and should –– call your doctor, visit a pharmacy, or use to track down resources and make an appointment to get vaccinated.
This year, though, the stakes for flu season are higher than before, and we are leaving no stone unturned. That’s why, this week, I launched a pilot program with the USC School of Pharmacy to bring flu shots directly to more Angelenos across the city in the weeks ahead. 
Residents will be able to get their shots free of charge, with no appointments necessary. We kicked off this program at the Weingart East L.A. YMCA, and will have more sites coming soon.
Anyone with a confirmed COVID-19 case should wait to get a flu shot and stay in isolation. Those with COVID-19 symptoms should consult a medical professional before getting a flu shot.

Please do your part to keep our city safe and get your flu shot as soon as possible.
LA County is helping train businesses on the implementation of COVID-19 safety protocols through a no-cost online training course called the COVID-19 Safety Compliance Certification Program (CSCCP). Once completed, business owners receive a certificate, and window seal to display on their storefront, which can reassure employees and customers alike that the business is following COVID-19 infection control and physical distancing requirements.
