Long Beach health officials on Wednesday expanded the hours for no-appointment COVID-19 vaccinations at the convention center.
The vaccinations are now available from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays. No-appointment vaccines are available by walk-up and drive-thru.
"We continue to see tremendous growth in our vaccination numbers," Mayor Robert Garcia said in a statement. "By increasing non-appointment availability options and making it even easier to receive the vaccine, we hope to see those numbers go up even more."
