ICLAC Newsletter – Mid-Month Update

This is a mid-month update of ICLAC newsletter with information on the most important webinars on immunizations.

Community Spotlight

The Spring Vaccine Forum is the first of two general sessions of the Immunization Coalition of Los Angeles County’s (ICLAC) in 2024. The goal of the Vaccine Forums is to share the latest vaccine guidance, collaborations, and best practices to improve immunization coverage, especially among those at highest risk. This time the forum will focus on Immunizations among People Experiencing Homelessness (PEH).

Where to Get Vaccinated

Visit ICLAC’s Where to Get Vaccinated page for which routine and recommended vaccines are needed for you or a family member, how to find a vaccination clinic near you, or request in-home vaccination.

COVID-19 Vaccine Update: All Adults 65+ Recommended to Get Additional COVID-19 Vaccine

CDC now recommends that all adults ages 65 years and older receive an additional updated 2023-2024 COVID19 vaccine dose to help protect against severe disease from COVID-19. For more information, see CDC’s press release. Persons ≥ 65 years of age should receive an additional dose of 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine, at least 4 months after previous updated (2023-2024) COVID-19 vaccine dose.

Free vaccines are available to uninsured and underinsured adults at many participating retail pharmacies, health care providers and health centers through a federal program called the CDC Bridge Access Program. A list of providers in this program can be found Here!

Measles Update

Measles cases have been confirmed in California and the U.S. in recent weeks. Cases have been linked to overseas travel, reflecting the global rise in measles cases. We encourage everyone to stay up to date with measles-mumps-rubella vaccinations (MMR), and other routine vaccines, especially if they plan to travel abroad for spring break. Learn more about measles activity in California.
