The latest figures on coronavirus vaccinations have been released by Los Angeles County and residents of the City of Lynwood are continuing to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
More than half of Lynwood residents over 16 years old (50.6%) have had the coronavirus vaccine, which lags the overall LA County by more than 10 percent.
The news is much better for our seniors.
A whopping 91.5 % of our seniors are now fully vaccinated which is considerably higher than the LA County rate which is 83.9%

Los Angeles County, including the City of Lynwood, is currently in the yellow tier. That is great news because it means the spread of COVID-19 has slowed and hospitalizations and death rates are down. The yellow tier also means that restaurants and other service-based businesses can increase capacity and start returning to normal which is what we’ve all been waiting for.
But we must continue to get vaccinated to protect everyone in our community.
Lynwood has since partnered with St. Francis Medical Center, St. John’s Family Center/Compton College, L.A. Care and SELA to provide COVID-19 vaccines to Lynwood residents and those who work in the City. Additionally, the Lynwood Unified School District has a weekly vaccine clinic.

We hope to see our vaccination rates continue to increase by the time LA County next updates their statistics June 5!
