general vaccine distribution information from Los Angeles County Department of Public Health 

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has posted information about the coronavirus vaccine and vaccination plans to offer guidance and clarity to the general public at VaccinateLACounty.com. The webpage includes:

Who Will Get the Vaccine and When

The Vaccine Distribution page describes the phases and tiers of vaccination, with more information about how these phases may roll out. This page is being updated regularly as the groups within each phase and tier are further refined, so check back frequently.

How the Phases and Tiers Were Determined

Vaccine eligibility is determined by phases of prioritization developed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) through the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), as well as guidance developed by the State via the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). This planning is occurring in close coordination with state and local health departments to ensure appropriate planning and collaboration with community partners. Allocation policies will be dynamic and will be adapted based on vaccine performance, vaccine supply and demand, and other factors.

No Out of Pocket Cost for Vaccine

No one will have to pay for the vaccine. A doctor or pharmacy may charge a fee for giving the vaccine, but it should be covered by public and private insurance companies. People without health insurance can get COVID-19 vaccines at no cost. There are no out-of-pocket payments.

Healthcare professionals wanting to receive the vaccine and facilities wanting to administer the vaccine should visit the COVID-19 Vaccine Healthcare Provider Information Hub.

Vaccine Distribution in the City of Malibu

The City has created a dedicated webpage for coronavirus vaccination information at MalibuCity.org/Vaccine. The City of Malibu is in active conversations with local medical providers to prepare for and support a mass vaccination site. Whether a site is needed depends on how many doses the local medical providers receive. If they only receive a small number of doses that is manageable to administer in their offices, then that is how it will be done. However, if the number of doses is too large to effectively administer through their offices, then a mass vaccination site would be established. City Council has already approved using City Hall as a vaccination site, and City Hall has been used numerous for drive-through COVID-19 testing service.
