From Beach Cities Health District
If you belong to Phase 1A (frontline healthcare workers and residents at long-term care facilities) or are a Los Angeles County resident aged 65 and older, you are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine supply is still extremely limited, and the Department of Public Health urges patience as they work urgently with their federal and state partners to expand capacity and supply in the weeks ahead. Appointments and doses are limited.
To find out when it's your turn to get vaccinated, residents can visit MyTurn.ca.gov.
My Turn is the State's new appointment registration platform. It's currently being piloted in Los Angeles and San Diego counties and is expected to be available statewide in early February. My Turn features a streamlined process for residents eligible to receive the vaccine. The system lets residents know if they are currently eligible and, if they are, can help find and book appointments that are available in their area. The site also alerts people who registered when appointments open up, or when vaccinations are opening up to additional priority groups.
State to Simplify Vaccine Eligibility: Beginning mid-February, the state will implement a statewide standard under which health care workers, individuals 65+ and education and child care, emergency services and food and agriculture workers will be eligible to start making appointments to receive the vaccine, pending vaccine availability. These are the groups identified in Phase 1B, Tier 1. Future groups will become eligible based on age. This statewide standard will move in unison across all 58 counties. This will allow the state to scale capacity up while also ensuring the vaccine goes to disproportionately impacted communities.
All tests will be by appointment only. These tests are free of charge. Los Angeles County has established a website with Fulgent to schedule appointments.
Los Angeles County testing sites, including the BCHD site, currently uses nasal swab tests. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns healthcare providers and patients that the test made by Curative, an oral swab test, carries a risk of false results, particularly false negative results. The BCHD testing site does not use the oral swab.

What is antibody testing?
Antibody testing is a serum or blood test for antibodies to COVID-19. These tests can show if an individual has or has had the infection whether symptomatic or not.
What does antibody testing tell us?
Antibody testing tells us if an individual has or has had the infection but does not prove immunity at this time. More research needs to be done.
What is the purpose of antibody testing?
Antibody testing helps us better understand how widespread COVID-19 is in our community, especially among individuals who have been infected and show no symptoms.
LA County and USC COVID-19 Antibody Testing
LA County and the USC Price School of Public Policy conducted a COVID-19 antibody study, in order to better understand and track the spread of COVID-19 in LA County. A random sample of 1,000 LA County adults living within 10 miles of testing sites were contacted for participation. They were selected to create a representative sample of LA County's adult population. Tests were conducted on April 10-11 across six testing sites in the county.
If you’ve recovered from COVID-19, you may have antibodies in your plasma that attack the virus. Please consider donating plasma to help those in need. Visit UCLA Health or the American Red Cross for more information.
