Please Continue to Follow L.A. County Public Health COVID-19 Vaccine Direction & Protocols

Copy of Vaccine Partnership News

February 11, 2021: Three additional sectors become eligible for vaccine starting on March 1: education and childcare, food and agriculture, and first responders and law enforcement. You will be able to begin making appointments via VaccinateLACounty.com and the County's Vaccine Call Center starting March 1. The County is working with multiple providers and partners to offer opportunities for vaccinating those who will be eligible beginning March 1. Please continue to be patient, as the extremely limited supply of vaccines is still the County's primary challenge to getting everyone vaccinated. If you haven't already, please sign up to learn when your turn with the State's MyTurn system at https://myturn.ca.gov/. This system will be used state-wide to manage vaccinations throughout California. Please also sign up for the L.A. County Vaccine E-Newsletter at VaccinateLACounty.com.

February 9, 2021: The City of Signal Hill is working with L.A. County Supervisor Janice Hahn's office to assist eligible Signal Hill residents with securing a vaccine appointment. If you are having trouble getting an appointment through VaccinateLACounty.com or the County's Call Center (see below for details):

  • Kaiser has opened a vaccination site for those 75 years old and up at Cal State Long Beach. If you are a Signal Hill resident 75 +, call 833-574-2273 for an appointment or visit their website. You do not have to be a Kaiser member.
  • If you need additional help, please contact Brenda Caloca with Supervisor Hahn's office at 562-256-1920. We kindly ask that only eligible residents reach out at this time. Please continue to be patient as COVID-19 vaccine supply remains very limited.

February 3, 2021: Due to new information from the State, LACDPH has temporarily paused all planning activities related to cities like Signal Hill splitting from the County for vaccine distribution. As such, please continue to follow L.A. County's direction. Please do not make appointments with Long Beach or contact Long Beach for vaccine inquiries. We appreciate your understanding and patience as agencies on all levels work to distribute vaccines fairly and safely.

Signal Hill residents: Please continue to follow L.A. County Public Health's vaccine direction and updates while we work on a possible arrangement with the City of Long Beach. Appointments with L.A. County DPH are now open for residents 65 years of age and older. If you are in this group, here is how you can get a vaccine appointment:

  • Sign up at VaccinateLACounty.com (this is the best way to get an appointment)
  • Call (833) 540-0473 between 8 a.m. and 8:30 p.m, 7 days a week
  • Contact your healthcare provider and/or local pharmacy
  • Continue to check back using these methods as more appointments open up

Please be patient. Vaccine supply from the federal government continues to be extremely limited, and this is limiting the number of available appointments. The County and State say they anticipate improvements to the vaccine distribution program in the coming weeks and months. 

 If you are not yet eligible to receive a vaccine, we strongly encourage you to sign up with the State's MyTurn system at https://myturn.ca.gov/.. This system will be used state-wide to manage vaccinations throughout California in the near future. Please also sign up for the L.A. County Vaccine E-Newsletter at VaccinateLACounty.com.

January 15, 2021: We are working with the City of Long Beach and L.A. County to potentially allow for Signal Hill residents to receive the COVID-19 vaccine under the Long Beach Department of Health & Human Services (LBDHHS). We are grateful for Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia’s assistance and his office’s coordination with Signal Hill and the L.A. County Department of Public Health. As we are still working through the process and awaiting confirmation, please do not attend Long Beach vaccination events or call Long Beach to make inquiries at this time. We will keep the community updated as new information becomes available. As a reminder, you may speak with your health care provider if you are interested in receiving the vaccine. Your employer may also have information if you work in an essential or high-risk sector. Currently, only limited groups are able to receive the vaccine. You can follow us on Facebook, on Nextdoor, visit our website, and/or sign up for our City E-Newsletter to stay up-to-date.
