The city of Los Angeles’ newest vaccination site opens Tuesday, March 9, at USC near the E Line’s (Expo) Expo Park/USC Station and the J Line’s (Silver) 37th St/USC Station.

The vaccination site is also served by many local Metro and LADOT bus routes, including the Metro 81, Metro 102, Metro 200, DASH F, DASH King-East and DASH Southeast.

The site will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily and have the capacity to vaccinate up to 5,000 people a day supplies permitting, according to the Office of Mayor Eric Garcetti.

The site will comprise all seven levels of the Flower Street parking garage at Expo and Figueroa to accommodate drive up, walk-up, and patients who require additional access services. Appointments at City of L.A. vaccination sites can be made online or by calling 833-540-0473.

Given current supplies of the vaccines, the USC site will be limited to a few thousand doses in its first week of operations. Starting next week, a large batch of appointments will be reserved for seniors in South L.A. As supplies increase, officials expect to vaccinate up to 5,000 people per day at this location, making it the second-largest vaccination site operated by the City of L.A. and growing the City’s daily vaccination capacity from 27,000 to 32,000.

There are many vaccination sites around L.A. County — the map below was created by the L.A. County Department of Public Health — and many of the sites can be accessed via Metro Bus and Rail lines.

  1. This is a good thing for the transit reliant population.
    81 is a good line that covers a large territory and crosses many other lines.
    People that can show their just used TAP card or a discount TAP card should be given priority as walk-ups.
