LACMA staff has been fielding calls from physicians across LA County and working tirelessly to get answers and help provide solutions.
Today, we are pleased to share with you answers and links to resources for your most frequently asked questions so our physicians can get vaccinated and on to serving their patients safely!
We will be updating the LACMA COVID-19 Physician Playbook 2.0 with additional information and resources as they become available.
Q: I'M IN PRIVATE PRACTICE WITH NO HOSPITAL AFFILIATION, HOW AND WHEN CAN I GET VACCINATED?
A: COVID-19 vaccination is now open to all healthcare workers (HCWs) in Phase 1A: All HCWs who have the potential for direct or indirect exposure to patients or infectious materials.
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is providing vaccination in five large vaccination point of dispensing sites called MegaPODs for healthcare workers (HCW) in Phase 1A. The MegaPODs will be held every day from January 19 to February 14 and additional dates may be added as needed. In order to receive vaccination at a MegaPOD, HCWs must make an appointment and provide documentation. The MegaPOD vaccine appointments are for the Pfizer vaccine and are drive-up only.
