Metro has partnered with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health to open a seventh free public vaccination site at the L Line (Gold) Soto Station in Boyle Heights.
The site is located just south of the station, which is at 2330 E 1st Street, Los Angeles, CA 90033, and is open from noon to 7 p.m., every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. This site will have the two-shot Pfizer vaccine, which is available to everyone 12 years and older (children require a parent or guardian present).
The vaccines and testing are free, and no insurance or citizenship documentation is required.
Appointments can be made by visiting https://vaccine.fulgentgenetics.com/. The site will also accept walk-ups.
The Soto Station site joins six other Metro locations that now offer free vaccinations – Union Station, the C Line’s (Green) Crenshaw/105 Station in Hawthorne, the Harbor Gateway Transit Center in Gardena, the A Line’s (Blue) Del Amo Station in Los Angeles, El Monte Station in El Monte and a site at the Metro-owned property at 339 N. Fickett St., Los Angeles, CA, 90033 – in serving zip codes identified by Gov. Gavin Newsom as having high rates of COVID-19 cases and low vaccination rates.
Metro’s Office of Equity and Race spearheaded this effort to ensure a more equitable recovery by offering convenient access to free vaccines at Metro transit sites and properties.
