Vaccine doses administered as of 4/13/2021:
5,939,158 (approximately one-third are second doses).

Approximately 52 percent of Los Angeles County adults have received at least one dose of vaccine. Current vaccination rates may be slowed due to the pause on Johnson & Johnson vaccines. The Almanac now projects that every adult resident of the county will have had opportunity to be vaccinated by the first week of June 2021.
