L.A. County has announced that the 18,000-capacity venue, located in Inglewood, will serve as a COVID-19 vaccination site for those eligible, beginning on Tuesday (Jan. 19). The facility will also continue serving as a testing site for coronavirus.
“There’s a great need for vaccination everywhere but based on infection impact and things like that, it’s in a location that serves an area that has a great need,” Kevin McGowan, director of L.A. County’s Office of Emergency Management, told the Los Angeles Times. “In addition to it, it’s a large facility that has the ability to expand and contract based on supply and demand.”
