The Los Angeles County COVID-19 vaccination call center is experiencing a surge of thousands of callers seeking to schedule vaccination appointments, causing wait times as long as several hours.
While we are increasing staffing at the call center, we strongly urge residents who have computer access to go to VaccinateLACounty.com to check appointment availability. The call center should be used only by residents with disabilities or who do not have computer access and need assistance to check for available appointments. Because of the short supply of vaccine, only a very limited number of appointments are currently available, for frontline health care workers and county residents aged 65 years and older.
