Safe Steps to Safe Schools

  • Los Angeles Unified COVID-19 Vaccination Initiative


    Los Angeles Unified agrees that COVID-19 vaccination is essential to protection against COVID-19. For best protection against COVID-19, students are encouraged to stay up to date with the recommended vaccinations.

    COVID-19 vaccines are available for eligible students at our Los Angeles Unified vaccine clinics.

    Students and families with questions or concerns regarding the COVID-19 vaccine requirement are encouraged to call our family hotline at 213-443-1300 and review our Frequently Asked Questions.



    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have approved Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for 5- to 11-year-old children. We are delighted to be able to offer voluntary vaccine access to students in this age group. The COVID-19 vaccine is highly encouraged for children ages 5-11. 

    Almost all of the LA Unified vaccine clinics have doses available for 5-11 year olds!
