COVID-19 Vaccine Information

COVID Vaccine Info virus arms with vaccine public health logos

Updated: April 15, 2021

The City of Signal Hill is under the jurisdiction of the L.A. County Department of Health (LACDPH). As such, the City is unable to distribute COVID-19 vaccines or manage any vaccine appointment system or program at this time. The information below is provided as a courtesy to assist you in using State, County and other resources to receive your vaccine and/or learn more about getting the vaccine. Learn more about the vaccines from the CDC. 

Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Update

As of April 13, out of an abundance of caution, the State of California is following the recommendation of the FDA and the CDC to pause the use of Johnson & Johnson vaccine after reports that six women between the ages of 18 and 48 developed unusual types of blood clots 6 to 13 days after receiving the vaccine. This pause will last until the FDA and CDC complete their review, which is expected to take several days. Vaccine providers in Los Angeles County will contact patients about rescheduling or providing a new appointment for Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. Learn more from LACDPH. 

Vaccine Eligibility

In L.A. County and state-wide, all residents age 16 and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. For those 16 and 17, please be aware that you can only be vaccinated at this time with the Pfizer vaccine. Therefore, if given the option while registering, please be sure to select the Pfizer vaccine only. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the time of their appointment.

Securing a Vaccine Appointment

In most cases, eligible people must have an appointment to be vaccinated. Health officials are working with multiple providers and partners to offer opportunities for vaccination.

At your appointment, please prepare to show photo identification with proof of residency and age (government ID is not necessary). Vaccines are free and do not require proof of citizenship or immigration status. Please see a list of documents that will be accepted as proof of residency and age. Health insurance and immigration status are not required.
