LA County, city, school-district sites gear up for Monday’s massive new wave of vaccine-seekers

With an estimated 1.2 million more people eligible for coronavirus vaccines on Monday, March 1, Los Angeles County will operate with its largest-ever infrastructure for delivering the sought-after inoculations this week. But health officials said residents will have to be patient while vaccine supplies remain thin and sporadic, and while staff are being trained to tighten up procedures to ensure only eligible people receive shots. County health officials expressed hope that conditions will impro...

Here’s what’s next for West Covina, as it builds its own health department

The West Covina City Council made a bold statement by voting to terminate services with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health last week as the community — and other local cities, many contemplating their own such moves — looked on. The hard part, however, lies ahead: Creating a team that can deliver all the state-mandated services of an independent health department. It’s not just the roles amplified during the county’s response to COVID-19 outbreak, but also scores of other tasks i...

Newsom’s Vaccine Plan Aims To Reopen California Classrooms

SAN FRANCISCO (AP/CBS13) — California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday released a new plan outlining how the state will allocate vaccines to education workers in a continued push to reopen more schools for in-person instruction. Newsom announced last week that at least 10% of the state’s vaccines would go to education workers starting in March, which translates to roughly 75,000 dedicated doses a week. The Governor’s Office on Thursday released an overview showing how those vaccines would be distri...

LA County unveils plan to vaccinate teachers, other essential workers, starting March 1

Teachers in Los Angeles County can begin receiving the coronavirus vaccine on Monday, March 1 — but just how many doses will be available for educators will depend on supply, which is still just an estimate. Among the slightly more than 200,000 vaccine doses that officials expect, 25% to 29% will go toward teachers and administrators, with 9% of those doses going to private school teachers and staff. First priority for doses goes to those with second-dose appointments. The remainder will be divi...

LA County surpasses 20,000 coronavirus deaths

The county reported another 157 deaths on Tuesday.

With more federal coronavirus relief likely, LA County scrutinizes impact of CARES dollars

Gearing up for more federal coronavirus relief money, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, Feb. 23, called for a detailed report on the impact of CARES Act dollars the county received last year. A key element of the 2020 CARES Act was the Coronavirus Relief Fund, through which the county received $1.057 billion.

LA County officials have harsh words for coronavirus vaccine inequity – and line-jumping cheaters

Just one week away from expanding eligibility for the coronavirus vaccine by up to 1.8 million people, Los Angeles County officials are worried the online system required by the state to book appointments will continue to pose challenges in communities hit hardest by the pandemic. Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Hilda Solis said on Tuesday, Feb. 23, that she was “not surprised,” but nonetheless “disgusted” by certain people using any means necessary to obtain vaccine doses. “I can tell you I was...

‘Partial herd immunity’ emerging, but some challenge the value of that status

It was nearly a year ago when Gov. Gavin Newsom, not long into a statewide lockdown, referenced the elephant in the COVID-19 room: herd immunity. The concept was frightening to many; with no vaccine in sight, they feared the only way it could be attained was for the virus to have infected enough people to have run out of hosts. Estimates of the looming toll at the time were chilling: as many as 840,000 Californians dead and 1.4 million seriously ill. National, state and local officials, meanwhil...

Newsom touts new Southern California vaccine pop-ups as counties transition to Blue Shield network

Gov. Gavin Newsom visited two federally funded pop-up coronavirus vaccination sites in Southern California on Sunday, Feb. 21, part of a statewide tour of such spots aimed at immunizing the state’s hardest-hit communities. The visit coincided with the launch of the transition to a new centralized system — which will include Riverside County in its first wave — to manage the state’s thus-far bumpy rollout of the badly needed vaccine. Newsom, flanked by several local elected leaders, said the mobi...

LA County’s vaccine mission keeps getting more complex

Los Angeles County’s mission to vaccinate roughly 8 million adults continues to get whole lot more complicated — and few of the solutions are worked out. Meanwhile, L.A.

On Friday, the county reported 150 new deaths and 2,459 new cases of COVID-19, bringing the total number of deaths to 19,662 deaths and positive cases to 1,176,772.

Coronavirus: Schools line up to reopen as LA County lays out the path

With coronavirus case rates in Los Angeles County now below a level deemed acceptable by the state to open grade schools, students at close to 300 elementary school were poised to get back to class and hundreds more schools could open in a matter of weeks.

CDC says it’s safe to reopen schools, even without vaccinating teachers

By COLLIN BINKLEY and MIKE STOBBE | Associated Press The nation’s top public health agency said Friday that in-person schooling can resume safely with masks, social distancing and other strategies, but vaccination of teachers, while important, is not a prerequisite for reopening. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released its long-awaited road map for getting students back to classrooms in the middle of a pandemic. But its guidance is just that — the agency cannot force schools to r...

LA County looks to next phase of vaccinations: Essential workers

With coronavirus numbers still claiming disproportionately high numbers of Latino and Black lives, Los Angeles County officials on Wednesday said that workers in education, food, agricultural, and public safety will be eligible for vaccines within a couple of weeks, as the county moves into a new immunization phase.

San Fernando Valley schools, daycares offered COVID-19 vaccines by local hospital

Teachers and staff at various schools and daycare centers throughout San Fernando Valley were recently offered COVID-19 vaccines after a local hospital reached out to them about getting vaccinated, despite the fact that educators younger than 65 aren’t yet eligible to receive the shots in most of Los Angeles County. The revelation came amid an ongoing debate as to how soon educators should be able to receive the vaccines, which remain in scant supply, as four in five seniors aged 65 and older in...

LA County vows to increase equity for coronavirus vaccines in hardest hit areas

One of the key aspects health officials tried to rely on to ensure the coronavirus vaccine reaches people in communities hardest hit by the virus involved using dozens of federally qualified health clinics specially tailored to provide care in underserved areas. There was just one problem. The vaccines being administered at those health clinics were not earmarked in any way for patients who use the clinic or for other people in the nearby community. Instead, many of those vaccination appointment...

L.A. County hospitals decompress as coronavirus continues gradual slowdown

Many Los Angeles County hospitals were beginning, to gradually return to normal, although patient levels still remained relatively high, health officials said Monday, Feb. 8.
