Supervisor Solis helps open COVID-19 vaccination site in Chinatown

Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis formally opened a COVID-19 vaccination site Monday, April 12, in the Chinatown area, saying it will target area seniors who may have difficulty making online appointments and who may be hesitant to leave their homes due to recent acts of hate targeting Asians. “Right now we know that Chinatown’s population (aged) 65-plus is behind the curve in terms of who has access to the vaccine,” Solis said during an opening ceremony at the site at 711 W.
