(CNN/CBS13) — The US Food and Drug Administration authorized Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus vaccine Saturday.

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...

What’s next as COVID-19 vaccination drive comes under new management?

In Long Beach, port workers qualify for the front of the coronavirus vaccine line. Statewide, Gov. Gavin Newsom wants 10% of vaccines guaranteed for educators going forward. But some counties began vaccinating teachers a month ago. Some counties embrace the state’s conclusion that medical marijuana workers are health care workers and qualify for early shots; others do not. There’s a system operated by the state to make vaccine appointments, but myriad other appointment systems are used by counti...

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