Starting today, March 1, Los Angeles County’s food and agriculture workers can receive the free COVID-19 vaccine. It’s part of a push to broaden vaccine eligibility and speed up the timeline for inoculating Californians.
“In addition to getting vaccinated at any public site,” the L.A. County Department of Public Health says specific groups of people can make appointments to get vaccinated on specific days at county-run MegaPODs. (MegaPODs are just massive vaccination sites. POD = Point Of Distribution.)
For food and agriculture workers, those days are Tuesdays and Thursdays.
