Dodger Stadium COVID Vaccine Site: Information, Directions, First Look & More

Everything you need to know for Dodger Stadium’s COVID-19 vaccination.



For the last few months, Dodger Stadium has served as one of the largest COVID-19 testing locations in the country. With the ability to test over 12,000 Los Angeles residents a day, it has been very helpful in the fight against the coronavirus.

With the introduction of the COVID-19 vaccine to the state of California, the biggest issue is distribution. Officials have struggled to find a way to make sure all residents have the access to the vaccine with the proper means of administering it. Dodger Stadium will now serve as a center for administering the vaccine as it makes the change from a testing center.

Below, we have a first look at the new setup at Dodger Stadium. There were an estimated 2,000 healthcare workers who received the vaccination just today as they work towards giving out over 12,000 per day.

At each location around Southern California, there are anticipated to be over 4,000 vaccinations delivered each day to prepare for mass distribution. Dodger Stadium is one of several spots that will be receiving this number.

Note that your appointment confirmation will contain information on where you should enter the ballpark

For those wondering, there is no cost for the vaccination. Insurance will pay for it per the report, or the start government will step in to make sure that the vaccines are distributed without and interruptions. Mayor Eric Garcetti and Governor Gavin Newsom both made an appearance at Dodger Stadium today to talk about the opening of the vaccination center.

Starting at 8 a.m. Friday, anyone who is eligible for the coronavirus vaccine may drive up to Dodger Stadium via appointment to get the injection. Check with your local officials and regulations for daily updates on who is eligible, as it is changing often.

  1. No instructions on how to sign up for the vaccine anywhere. We are 80 + and need to know where we sign up to get vaccinated. Don’t know how to use YOU TUBE, TWITTER, etc. Our doctor has a VERY LONG message that basically says he doesn’t have it yet. No sign ups, no sign up dates! I don’t want a newsletter, just information.

  2. I have an appointment, but I don’t know what time to arrive before my appointment. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  3. How far in advance should I get to Dodger stadium for the vaccine. I have an appointment. Also, what vaccine is the Dodger stadium giving/ Pfizer or Moderna?

  4. To schedule an appointment and get more information, you should call the phone number if you don’t have access to a computer.

    Residents without computer access can call (833) 540-0473 between 8 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. for assistance with reservations.
