L.A. Care Health Plan and Blue Shield of California Promise Health Plan announced Monday they will operate 16 outdoor pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinics through May 1 in partnership with USC Pharmacy.

The clinics will administer free COVID-19 Johnson & Johnson vaccines starting Wednesday. The one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine is only approved for people 18 years old and over.

People must be eligible for the vaccine under Los Angeles County guidelines. Appointments are required and can be made at bit.ly/3fKhMGc.
