Rep. Roybal-Allard Statement on Community Vaccination Center at Cal State LA
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Lucille Roybal-Allard (CA-40) today issued the following statement on the conclusion on April 11th of the 8-week pilot federal mission to provide vaccinations at California State University, Los Angeles. The site will remain open under local leadership. It will also continue to receive 100 percent federal funding and will leverage vaccine allocations made to the state and county.
“I want to thank FEMA, Cal OES, Cal State LA, and all the partner agency teams for their outstanding work in administering almost 320,000 vaccines in our vulnerable communities through the federal pilot community vaccination center at Cal State LA. This is part of the American Rescue Plan at work! Although the 8-week pilot will formally conclude this weekend, FEMA has agreed to my request – and that of many other elected officials – to continue to provide staffing and other resources to help keep the Cal State vaccination effort going. I look forward to continuing to work with the new operating partnership at Cal State led by the City of Los Angeles.”
