Only priority groups identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), with additional guidance provided by the state, are receiving the vaccine. Currently, only frontline healthcare workers, residents and staff in skilled nursing facilities and other long-term care facilities are eligible for vaccination.

"Getting the vaccine to every resident is our top priority in the fight to end this pandemic," said Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell in a statement. "I’m glad to see The Forum— which serves our communities in so many ways— expand from testing to offering vaccine distribution."

The LA Forum also served as a voting center for the 2020 election.
