Dodgers: Mookie Betts Helps Push COVID-19 Vaccine Efforts in Los Angeles



Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts is doing his part to encourage the people of Los Angeles to get their COVID-19 vaccine. The team was originally pretty quiet on vaccines, citing personal health decisions as a reason that players did not initially discuss getting theirs. 

But Betts was out in the community this week thanking front-line workers and pushing for the vaccine. He made an appearance in Downtown Los Angeles at a Ralphs store to encourage people to get their shots. 

Just trying to get everyone to understand we need to get the world back to normal and it starts with this.

Up Next for the Dodgers

The Dodgers play one more game against the Giants tonight to wrap up their mini 2-game series. Walker Buehler gets the ball for Los Angeles going up against potential Cy Young candidate Kevin Gausman. 

If the Dodgers are able to pull out a win, it would put them within a game and a half of San Francisco for first place in the west.
